What we do

By Nature offers you a unique green wedding list service with a selection of the best green, organic and ethical products. From recycled glassware to organic bedding and fair trade photo albums there is no better way to start your life together.

We will not only match 10% of the total amount bought on your list and give this money on your behalf to your chosen charity but we also provide you with a total stress free and customised experience.

By Nature's contemporary eco style will fit your life and your conscience. We believe that you should not have to compromise on style in order to lead a green lifestyle.

When selecting our products we consider both care for the environment and respect for the people producing them, giving as much thought to how those products were made as to how they look.

Ethical action

Our philosophy is very simple: Green living in Style ... no compromise.

We aim to source the best organic, ethical and sustainable products available. Why? Because we believe that by consuming better we can reduce our impact on the environment and help preserve the world that we love.

By Nature is more than just a shop - it's about aspiring to a certain way of life: a lifestyle that combines a desire for style and quality with care for the environment and respect for people; a lifestyle that doesn't see this as a compromise; an "ethical lifestyle".

Our green wedding list service enables you to select from many eco products. Each product has a detailed description which lists its eco-credentials such as certification, materials, country of origin.

And as our wedding gift to you we will give 10% of the total spent by your guests to your chosen charity.

A few ways we're trying to make a difference

Recycling

Recycles

We sell many products made of recycled materials from recycled glassware to recycled underwear to name a few. We recycle all packaging, paper, refill cartridges. We use corn packaging chips that can be composted. All our stationery is printed on recycled paper. When selecting our products we make a conscious effort to select those with minimum packaging so that they generate the least waste.


Renewable energy use

Uses renewable energy

Our electricity comes from renewable sources with Green Energy.


Reducing carbon footprint

Reducing carbon footprint

We offer many products to help people reduce their carbon footprint. We also encourage our suppliers to use sea freight rather than air freight. The Green Buzz, our free ezine, also offers advice on that subject.


Using organic products

Organic products

We offer organic clothing, bedding, bath linens, toys, beauty products, chocolate, spices, tea and garden products.


Supporting local producers

Local products

We try to source British products whenever possible. Country of manufacture and origin are clearly stated for each products.


Using cruelty-free products

Cruelty free

All our household products and skincare are not tested of animals. Some are accredited by the BUAV.


Supporting fair trade

Fair trade products

We stock many Fairtrade and fairly traded products. As much as we try to encourage producers towards a full Fairtrade accreditation we understand it is not always possible for them to pay money towards an accreditation and therefore encourage smaller projects that by producing fairly traded products make a positive difference in local communities.


Supporting / working with a charity

Support a charity

We give 10% of the total spent on each wedding list to the couple’s chosen charity.


Vegetarian / vegan

Vegetarian / vegan
