The skincare company that will save the world

Words by Abi Scaife

It's that time of the week when we feature businesses that are giving back - whether that's to the planet or their community, we're excited to share it all!


UpCircle Beauty is a company that takes by-products from other industries and turns them into skincare products! They are based on the idea of the circular economy and have worked hard to create a sustainable, environmentally friendly range of care products that uses up what would otherwise be wasted.

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly gift for the skincare enthusiast in your life, or just looking to add step 11 to your Korean skincare routine, this is the brand for you!


The Maidstone Distillery is not only known for its gin, but its huge efforts to be sustainable. From running on 100% green energy and responsibly foraging ingredients to their plastic-free packaging and bottle refill service, you can certainly drink this gin guilt-free.

Not only that, but 2.5% from the sales of Ranscombe Wild Small Batch Gin are donated to Plantlife, a UK-based conservation charity. We love to see it!


If you thought tea was good enough on its own, think again. Numi Tea is the beautiful brainchild of a brother and sister team who are fighting climate change, poverty and inequality through the power of organic teas.

From providing education and clean drinking water to those in need, to fair trade and their five-step climate action plan, Numi doesn’t just talk the talk, it walks the walk - and what’s more delicious than that?
