Yep. You got it. Right now, we’re sending all orders out completely free of charge. What better time to do a little ethical shopping and get Father’s Day gifts sorted early. Enjoy. It’s for a limited time only.
Who is Jimi? Jimi is the wallet for men who hate wallets. Made from recycled plastic, Jimi is no ordinary wallet and more of an anti-wallet. Lots of men will be used to a big, fat wallet which is far too accommodating and usually means lugging around far more than you need to. Jimi will make you see your wallet differently. Like lots of things in life, simple is best. Jimi holds just what you need and at just £12.49 makes an affordable Father’s Day gift. Sturdy, stylish and eco-friendly, Jimi will prove a reliable friend. FATHER’S DAY is 21 JUNE 2009. For more great gift ideas click here.
Call us geeky, but in an effort to share the delights of Love Eco with as many people as possible, we’ve developed a lovely new Facebook application: Eco Gifts.
Now, you can send a virtual eco-friendly gift to all your Facebook pals without spending a penny . So, go have some fun, make someone’s day with an Eco Gift. Click here, sign in as usual and off you go.
If there’s one thing I can’t live without, it’s my bamboo towels. Seriously, I’m addicted to them and you can be too. Especially since we’re having a big sale on them right now. 25% off at just £45 a set (worth £60).
Now, I realise that many peoples’ instant reaction is ‘ooh aren’t they scratchy’ and all i can say is ‘noooooo!’ In fact, they are super silky smooth and, of course, eco-friendly.
Bamboo yields a soft, absorbent fibre that is great for making thirsty bath towels and is three times more absorbent than cotton. And, because it is fast-growing, soil enhancing and doesn’t require synthetic encouragement, it’s a great environmentally friendly, sustainable alternative for your bathroom. Trust me, you won’t look back once you’ve tried them and what better time.
Today is World Fair Trade Day. Of course, we do fair trade at Love Eco and have a wonderful range but we thought it’d be nice to tell you a bit more about the products. In particular, our fairly traded baskets.
I met Sheenagh at the School for Social Entrepreneurs (she is a fellow fellow!). Sheenagh runs a fair trade company which works to improve the lives of marginalised communities by developing a sustainable market for their products. Sheenagh believes, as we do too, that fair trade can act as an important bridge between worlds, fostering a better understanding between both ends of the supply-chain, the customer and the producer.
The result of Sheenagh’s dedicated work is the range of handmade jute baskets which are available at Love Eco. Click here to view the range. Below are some wonderful pictures of some of the women making the baskets.
