Earth Day falls on 22 April, which makes this month the perfect time to be more mindful about sustainability and consumer habits.

There are myriad ways to reduce your carbon footprint and participate in ethical consumption as part of your own day-to-day, and one is by backing the sustainable businesses in the City of London.

Buying from eco-friendly businesses means you’re reducing your carbon footprint and doing your part to make the City of London a little greener– and there are loads of sustainable businesses in and around the Square Mile to choose from.

A sustainable fashion brand for women, Deploy is all about pioneering British circular fashion (as opposed to fast fashion) with customisation and thoughtful designs that last rather than following trends. The brand sources its materials environmentally and upcycles to ensure a reduced carbon footprint. Located just a stone’s throw from the square mile, Deploy is also available online.

Le Bon Bamboo

If you’re looking for non-plastic disposables, Le Bon Bamboo is the spot to check out. Located opposite Finsbury Park Gardens, this sustainable business serves up products and packaging that are way more eco-friendly than their plastic alternatives, including fully compostable tableware sets and more.

Planet Organic

Planet Organic can be found in Spitalfields (and online) and is the ultimate one-stop shop for sustainable and organic products. It is also a zero edible food waste business that uses compostable containers and cups for takeaway – sounds pretty green to us.
