Little B is a wonderful small business based in Thatcham. Claire is the founder and has a real heart for making positive eco choices for her family.

Little B has branched out a lot since humble beginnings of selling just her wonderful homemade beeswax wraps at local markets! The online shop is now full of a wide range of eco-friendly lifestyle products; including re-usable sanitary products, re-usable kitchen rolls, insulated drinks bottles and much more!

I am proud to stock Little B's vegan alternative to popular beeswax food wraps. This wonderful product offers a plastic-free and long-lasting alternative to cling film. These wraps have so many uses...including wrapping packed lunches, wrapping leftovers, bowl covers and more! Claire carefully formulated the perfect blend of plant waxes to create these eye-catching wraps made from only organic cotton.

Natural plastic-free deodorants and shampoo/conditioner bars from PosyLondon

PosyLondon is another eco-friendly business based in Newbury. Wonderful Dale is the super-talented lady behind this lovely brand of handmade natural products to keep you feeling fresh and wonderful.

Posy deodorants come in a gorgeous range of scents and are made using natural products including beeswax and essential oils. The deodorant comes in both cardboard tubes or convenient small travel tins. The tubes last 3-4months and are brilliantly effective.

The shampoo and conditioner bars are equally gorgeous in the scent department and leave your hair feeling clean and nourished. The shampoo bars are available in cotton bags which the product can be used in... the cotton bag creates a wonderful lather and increases the lifespan of the bar. The conditioner bars and refill shampoo bars are packaged in compostable glassine bags. The bars are coconut-based and scented with essential oils.
