I received and tested these products in exchange for my honest review.
One of my favourite thing about my blog is that I have this massive opportunity to make a difference. I use my blog to spread the word and make people aware of green and ethical issues. I find, that the best way is to do this by introducing other options, that are positive choices for people and planet. We don’t have to to accept and buy the goods big labels and glossy adverts are trying to sell us. Money is a vote which you can use every time you go shopping. By using your spending power wisely you can help to create a better, healthier and greener world.
With that in mind, the idea to create a new monthly review series called “My Ethical And Green Picks Of The Month” was born. The posts are to introduce all the small shops and indie brands who produces and sells ethically produced, eco-friendly, organic, natural, cruelty – free and fairly traded goods, that are alternatives to everyday items such as fast fashion, processed food, cosmetics and cleaners containing toxins and harmful chemicals. My aim is to inspire you to choose positive buying. To reverse reducing the power of local communities, to stop overconsumption, abusing animals and wasting our natural resources.

I have tried the limited edition Orange & Clove Luxury Scented Soy Wax candle and I can say it’s perfect for cosy winter nights with a hot bath and a book!
The Neubria range has been created to support superior sleep quality and improved levels of energy and focus. I have tried their EDGE Mental Performance supplement which contains our innovative Mastermind Botanical Complex, a cutting-edge blend of seven potent botanical ingredients that have been carefully chosen for their ability to boost mental performance. The complex includes Bacopa Monniera Extract, Ashwagandha Root Extract and Ginkgo Biloba Extract among others – all of which help you to attain the mental edge. And I have also tested the DRIFT natural sleep supplement, which contains our tailored Bliss Botanical Complex – a blend of four botanical ingredients that work together to support relaxation and healthy sleep. The complex includes Lemon Balm Extract, Hops Extract, Chamomile Extract and Saffron Extract, all of which have demonstrated sleep-inducing properties. I was really impressed with both, they definitely helped in the madness of the Christmas season!
I often work with this fantastic brand and it’s been my favourite one stop place to shop for all healthy ingredients for my recipes. With their nut butters I have created two recipes to promote Veganuary: Healthy and Vegan Nut Butter Bites and Beautiful Beetroot Hummus
I’ve been using this body scrub since December and my lovely friends at Percol Coffee have introduced me to this brand when we did a week long sustainability challenge last month. I absolutely love it, it’s heavenly fragranced, the mix of the coffee and the lemongrass is just perfect. This scrub is made with top-quality Arabica coffee grounds sourced from artisan coffee shops. Natural, sustainable, vegan & cruelty-free.
