This handcrafted ‘Classic’ clock is made in the UK and constructed from upcycled vending machine coffee cups provided by the UK’s national Save-A-Cup scheme. The new material is said to have a solid, heavy, earthy-feel, very similar to slate.
(200 x 200mm) recycled classic clock £24.95 @ boutiko.co.uk
Boutiko’s internet gift store specializes in the sale of ethical, earth-friendly products featuring locally produced, organic or recycled materials.
Vegan shoe designer Gina Ferraraccio’s done it again. Much like her debut spring line, the fall-winter line poses a serious shoe dilemma for those who are passionate about their ethical footwear.
Just too many hot, fetching styles. On a tight budget? Buy less, and buy quality.
Below are a couple of personal faves.
(L) Linneah, a ruched, sling-back bootie ($265).
(R) Libby, a short boot with snaps; faux suede and shearling ($275).
Both made without any animal products, and with an eco friendly tanning process.
In step with the times; all carbon emissions that can’t be avoided are offset via carbonfund.org and for every pair sold, a tree is planted.
