“The fact that everything on Etsy is either handmade or vintage makes it an incredibly green way of shopping. Buying upcycled and vintage pieces means that nothing is going to waste, and hand made items use much less power that anything produced in a factory. But the most rewarding thing is that your Etsy item has been made with love, so you are more likely to keep and cherish it.

“I’ve selected a mix of stylish fashion, interiors and gifts (including Father day which is on June 15th in the UK) focusing on items that are made from organic cotton, natural dyes, re or up-cycled materials as these all score a little higher in their green credentials.”
