The Clean Market LDN us an eco-friendly online shop with a mission to find alternative sustainable products and reduce daily waste to zero. I wanted to highlight this small business as an incredible online resource for finding everyday swaps like these gorgeous organic cotton bags, perfect for carrying your SPF and towel ready for the beach!

Proper Old Fashioned Rock by Charles Butler @charlesbutlerconfec

Two boxes of Proper Old Fashioned Rock one mint and one fruit by Charles Butler that were featured in the Loving Small Business Signature Box sitting in a pink net bag on a pebble beach

I challenge you to find a more quintessential British Seaside business! In 2016 the Charles Butler brand was re-launched with new packaging by Maxons. The brand was the original part of the company dating back to 1848 but the brand had died away in the 1960s. After finding original price lists, recipes and marketing information including letters in the family archives the brand was brought back to life in 2016.

Coastal Room Fragrance Spray by Melt Me Real Good @melt.merealgood

Three clear bottles of Coastal Room Fragrance Spray with duck egg blue labels by Melt Me Real Good that were featured in the Loving Small Business Signature Box standing on a bench in front of long green grass.

Alice, the founder of Melt Me Real Good, a Scotland based home fragrance business, created her classic range of fragrances which captures her love and passion for where she lives. They have been formed out of fond memories of childhood adventures, her honeymoon and now a place that she calls home. These room fragrance sprays are from her coastal collection made from a simple and fuss free blend of fragrance oils and non hazardous base oil.

Nautical Tea Towel by Victoria Eggs @victoriaeggs

Blue sketch drawings of ice lollies and beach huts on a nautical themed tea towel by Victoria Eggs that was featured in the Loving Small Business signature box, on a wooden table next to a portion of fish and chips

Victoria wanted to capture special moments, such as the unmistakable smell of fish and chips at the seaside, in the form of gifts, screen printing the first designs onto tea towels and selling them at Spitalfields Market. She now works with manufacturers and family run businesses throughout the UK to produce her heartfelt gifts. Victoria is passionate about sustainability and supporting her local community and that is just the icing on the cake!

Fair trade Pebble Soap by Hana Blossom @hanablossomcandles

Fair trade Pebble Soap by Hana Blossom that was featured in the Loving Small Business Signature Box. These look exactly like pebbles and the picture shows them on some pebbles with only their yellow product band giving them away

Hana Blossom designs are inspired by nature. They are designed in London and individually hand crafted by local artisan co-operatives in Thailand. Every piece is unique with its own character, yet vegan and cruelty free. I know these are wrapped in plastic, however it's served the purpose for transporting them to the UK and I wanted to highlight the incredible work of co-operatives around the world ensuring that locals are paid fairly for their gorgeous creations!
