Focusing on gardening, laundry and skincare, Sarah at Ethics Trading offers natural and sustainable solutions to her customers.
Sarah is passionate about her products and has personal experience with every product sold through Ethics Trading. “If I won’t use it I won’t sell it, it’s that simple.” she says.
Sarah is a big advocate of soapnuts, which are a 100% renewable cleaning resource. Completely natural, Soap nuts grow on trees. They are mild and gentle, protecting your skin and your clothes as well as the Earth. At the end of their use, soapnuts can be added to the compost heap.
Sarah set up Ethics Trading after she found it increasingly frustrating finding natural alternatives for her and her family. Her son had a type of localised infant eczema that was aggravated by commercial washing powders, bio ones in particular. His asthma was also aggravated by air fresheners and synthetic perfumes.
Not just for laundry, soapnuts can be used to clean everything from the floor to work surfaces.
Sarah grows her own food and offers a range of products from the garden, including jute sacks for making leaf mould, paper potters and tools which are hand turned from FSC approved oak.
Sarah uses recycled packaging where possible by reusing packaging that she receives goods in herself. Free postage comes as standard on orders over £30.00.
Sarah runs a blog where you can catch up with her latest news and also offers a newsletter so that you can keep up with the latest from her company.
Sarah is offering one lucky reader a paper potter and 100g bag of soapnuts during our Pledge and WIN competition. With the paper potter, you’ll be able to turn your old newspapers into pots for all your seedlings. There is no waste because you can plant these pots straight into the ground, where they will biodegrade. With soapnuts, you have the opportunity to revolutionise your home cleaning!
Incidentally, Sarah’s son now has clear, rosy and healthy skin thanks to their lifestyle changes.
