A new website I’ve been really loving recently is ethical.market, previously known as The Lost Lanes. They’re the U.K.’s largest ethical marketplace, and all of their products are from ethical, sustainable and cruelty-free independent designers in the United Kingdom. I’m really happy to have found this website, because they sell some really beautiful things, plus they’re guaranteed to be cruelty-free, something which is hard to find in this day and age. I thought I’d share with you some items that I’m currently coveting from their website, so you can get an idea of the kind of products they sell and then have a look for yourself!
White Opal and Sterling Silver Ring by Bosie Boutique – £45
This ring is absolutely stunning. I’ve recently become obsessed with opal products, and this ring is just so beautiful and unique. It’s also very delicate, and is sterling silver so it won’t turn your finger green! This would make a perfect present for a birthday or Christmas, or just to treat yourself, you can get it here!
Personalised Zodiac Constellation Circle Pendant Necklace by Oh Someday – £45
This is another sterling silver piece of jewellery, and again I love how unique it is! I love astrology and star signs (I’m a Pisces by the way), and this really would make a great birthday present! I really like the very minimalist design elements on this necklace, and the stamping of the actual constellation makes it less of a showy and obvious zodiac piece like some jewellery items can be. The ability to personalise this necklace is also really wonderful, as it makes this piece completely unique to you. Buy it here!
I’m Really a Mermaid White Cotton Unisex T Shirt by Freebird Apparel – £15.99
I think this t shirt is so cute! I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t want to be a mermaid? This is perfect for summer to throw on with a pair of shorts, and the detailing on the shell is absolutely amazing. I really love the turquoise-y colour of the shell as well, and it’s such a fun and easy item to wear! The price is actually very reasonable, only £15.99! You can get yours here.
A5 Cloudy Stars Notebook by Nikki Strange – £4.99
This is an absolutely beautiful notebook, and would be perfect for jotting down ideas or dreams, even to use as a journal! The design of this notebook would be great for inspiring you to get creative, and for only £4.99, there’s no reason you shouldn’t get it!
Translucent Jellyfish Illustrated Smart Phone Case by Nikki Strange – £21.99
I always have to have a case on my phone (just in case the worst happens and I drop it!), but I’m always looking for a case that I think is beautiful and that I won’t get bored of too quickly, as well as being able to protect my phone properly! This case is absolutely gorgeous, I love the ocean so this is the perfect theme for me, and the ethereal looking colours make this case really magical and unique. They do have a wide range of patterns and styles though, so you can choose the perfect one for you, but if you love this one you can buy it here!
What I love about this website is that they always feature the brand or designer who created that product, as well as where they’re based and where they source their materials, so you really get an idea of what you’re purchasing. This is very similar to websites like etsy, where people can sell their products and begin their businesses online. ethical.market have such a huge range of products, not only selling women and men’s clothing and stationary, but also home items and make-up and body care, plus everything’s ethical! You should definitely go and have a good shop around their website!
