There’s a sustainable alternative to just about anything, and these five ethical products and services are simple switches that would make a big difference – and could save you some cash along the way.

1. Organic wines

Switching to organic wine is good news for the farmers, the soil, biodiversity –
and you! Try the mixed case of six Organic Everyday wines from Vintage Roots.

2. Ethical gifts

Need to buy someone a present? Tree2MyDoor offers long-lasting, eco-friendly alternatives to mass-produced gifts – the trees and plants – including the Tree of Life – are perfect for weddings, births, birthdays or even just to remind someone they’re special.

3. Get that glow

Natural and organic skincare products will help get your skin in tip-top condition so your natural beauty can shine through. Try Weleda Skin Food for an instant and all-natural glow.

4. Watch your spending

Want to know the impact of your spending? Carbon track and offset your transactions with Algbra, a feature-packed ethical finance app.

5. Plant a tree

If you’re about to buy a product you don’t really need, you can satisfy your craving (and save some money) by putting it back and planting a tree with TreeSisters instead!

These superstar products and services are ethical alternatives from companies that are doing things differently.

You may not have heard of all these green pearls, as they’re from companies that don’t necessarily spend their profits on mass advertising or negotiating the cut-rate bulk deals that would get them on supermarket shelves.

We think that if you don’t know the real options, you don’t really get to choose.
