Meet the brands: Sustainable fashion, bedding, skincare, and more!
It’s that time of year again…gifting season. You might be one of the lucky ones who has a talent for buying the perfect gift, but for most of us it usually means a lot of last-minute panic and stressing over what to buy. Not to mention, as a conscious shopper, trying to find sustainable gift alternatives can make it even more challenging!
Not to worry though, our Meet The Brands series is here to help! In the run up to Christmas, we’ll be introducing you to Amplify’s sustainable brand partners. You’ll have your planet-friendly gifts sorted in no time!
Of course, we’re not encouraging you to go on a wild spending spree this Christmas. It’s important to minimise our consumption levels where possible. But if you’re already going to be buying something, try purchase from a sustainable brand, and why not earn a free climate donation while you’re at it!
Based in Hove in the UK, Votch creates cruelty-free watches and accessories from innovative and sustainable materials including Pinatex and AppleSkin. What are those you ask? Pintatex is a by-product of the pineapple harvest where no extra land is used to create a superbly durable leather-like material, while AppleSkin is a material made from apple waste from the apple juice industry. Peta-approved and using faux leather, Votch offers a large range of high-quality watches for all genders, in addition to plenty of other fashion accessories.
Luxurious organic bedding that doesn’t harm the planet…what more could you ask for! Providing a sustainable alternative to cotton, Ethical Bedding’s range of duvets, pillow cases, sheets (and much more!) are made using Eucalyptus which uses 95% less water and substantially less land than cotton. It uses zero herbicides or pesticides, not to mention it’s said to improve your sleep quality. A guilt-free, luxurious sleep…gimme!

Driven by their mission to encourage everyday activism through what you wear, Gung Ho quite literally allows you to wear your values. Each of their collections are inspired by social and environmental issues, weaving conversation starters into the design of every garment. Not only that, sustainability is at the core of their processes, from the materials used to their return scheme for products at the end of their life cycle, so they can be repurposed and upcycled! They have dresses, jumpsuits, sweatshirts, tops, tees, skirts, & much more, so whether you’re shopping by cause or product (or both!), they’ll have you covered.
Bluebell Lane Jewellery
Handmade by owner Ruth, every piece of jewellery is made using recycled sterling silver, also known as Ecosilver. When you buy something that has been made from recycled Silver, there has been no extra mining or human exploitation involved in the sourcing of the silver. So, as we already have a huge amount of it, Ecosilver is a sustainable and environmentally friendly way to make and wear jewellery with a clear conscience. Bluebell Lane Jewellery‘s pieces are made to last, from necklaces and bracelets to earrings and rings, as well as a bespoke service too!
