Natalie Vizard highlights some local fashion retailers who believe that looking stylish needn't come at the cost of the planet


For simple elegance



Based in Bath, Bibico is an ethical clothing brand renowned for its simple, effortless style. Understanding that the frocks we wear impact on the world in more ways than just how delightful we look, Spanish designer Nieves Ruiz decided to start an ethical fashion label that doesnt skimp on style. Her easy-to-wear designs will have you looking gorgeous in casual-chic pieces that are perfect for picnics in the park and wintery strolls.

For the kids



Founded in 2002 by Donna Phillips, Little Shrimp (Frome) offers an exclusive collection of organic baby and children's clothing, which encompasses all the wishes of new and experienced parents.


Little Shrimp's cotton is certified, which means they can trace their organic cotton back to where it has been grown in a sunny field in India. The organic baby and children's clothing is then dyed and printed and processed in accordance with the standards set out by the renowned Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) under the EKO Sustainable Textiles Scheme.


From birth to six years.
