Green Shopping

http://www.green-shopping.co.uk

We are foremost a green shopping catalogue run by green people. We only want to sell genuinely practical useful or educational materials. Our products are ideally made in the UK by small companies from ethically sourced materials. If we import it is because the product cannot be sourced ‘locally’. We don’t sell greenwash ‘toys’ or goods from sweatshops. We welcome customer feedback and recommendations and we are always at the end of an email or a phone during office hours to offer a friendly and reliable service.
