Sustainable and Eco-Conscious Brands at Coggles

Sustainability continues to be a key theme for 2022 as people want their shopping habits to not only do right by them, but also the planet. It is no surprise that people are not willing to buy into brands when their values don’t align with their own. The recent scrutiny of fast fashion brands and consumerism backlash has shone an even bigger spotlight on sustainable brands with homeware not far behind. With sustainability becoming a key buyer driver and rightly so, we are taking a closer look at the brands leading the way. 

Whether they are using recycled materials or saying no to mass production, these are some of the brands at Coggles who are turning their efforts into integrating a more eco-conscious approach and sustainable production methods.
