7 ethical superheroes to keep on your radar
When it comes to living a more ethical life, it can be overwhelming as you research brands' ethical credentials and sustainable values. But there are plenty of companies out there that are leading the way, committing themselves to creating products that are good for you, and the planet. Here are seven of our favourites...

1. Shlurple’s Collapsible Straw + Cutlery set, £21.10, shlurple-straws.com

Let's face it: plastic sucks! Fed up of single-use plastics, Shlurple has created long-lasting collapsible straws and reusable cutlery so you can be sure that you're not contributing to plastic pollution. This set combines both for a handy pack that's an ideal gift for the eco warrior in your life, and a must-have for anyone who's passionate about sustainability.

3. Blue Goose Eco Coffee Pod Christmas Gift Collection, £18, bluegoose.coffee

Coffee capsule machines may be super-handy for brewing up a decent coffee in a hurry, but all of those pods create quite the waste. That's why we love companies like Blue Goose, which creates eco-friendly coffee pods so you can still enjoy your cup of Joe without harming the planet. The Blue Goose Eco Coffee Pod Christmas Gift Collection is a great ethical, conscious gift option for your coffee-loving friends and family. The compostable, plastic-free capsules are available in a range of exceptional coffees, including Ethiopian and decaf.

5. UpCircle Face Moisturiser, £18.99, upcirclebeauty.com

Saving valuable skin-loving ingredients from going to waste, UpCircle is pioneering the way for zero-waste, sustainable beauty. The brand upcycles leftover natural ingredients that would otherwise go to waste, such as used coffee grounds and brewed chai tea spices, and gives them a new life in the form of beauty goodies. Better yet, the brand's entire range is handmade, organic, palm oil-free, and contained in recyclable packaging. Try the brand's new range, which includes this deeply-hydrating, fast-absorbing face cream. Made with the fine powder of discarded argan shells (a rich source of vitamin E) as well as skin-soothing cocoa butter, aloe vera and blood orange, the moisturiser helps to nourish and brighten your complexion.
