Eco expansion opens up a world of shop local opportunities 
 
‘Planet Love’ is where Ruby and the Angel in heading this spring as it launches a range of environmentally-sensitive, ethically-sourced merchandise for him, her and the home. 
 
The retail business, ranked one of Britain’s Best Small Shops in 2020, is based in Debenham, Suffolk and has recently opened an additional retail outlet at Cross Green, opposite its well-established gift shop on the village high street. 
 
The new shop, ‘Ruby and the Angel Eco’ offers a range of planet-loving, sustainably-produced gifts and household products all of which satisfy vegan, organic, 100% natural, and/or eco-friendly credentials. Plastic free, fair trade and a ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ ethic is central to the business’s sourcing policy and a selection of its new lines will also feature replenishing options that will allow customers to purchase items, then return their empty bottles as when required. 
 
“As a business we are committed to reducing the use of single plastic and are trying very hard to be more environmentally focused and protect the planet where we can. Our customers are becoming more eco-conscious too, and so extending our product-base to include more eco-friendly items is a natural progression. Our planet loving range offers beautiful, high-quality products for your interiors, your personal care and well-being, and as gorgeous gift ideas,” said Tammy King, owner/manager of Ruby and the Angel. 
 
Many of R&A’s new eco brands include items made from recycled materials, such as glass, textiles, utensils and stationery. It also offers a comprehensive selection of naturally-derived, sustainably-produced body, skin and hair care products. 
 
The dedicated eco range is available to order online at www.rubyandtheangel.co.uk and in store once lockdown is over. 
Customers can also find out the latest additions to the range, news, reviews and can take part in competitions to win various gifts and treats on Ruby and the Angel’s social media pages.

Win an UpCircle skincare bundle to celebrate MUMS...... 
GIVEAWAY - a bundle of UpCircle skincare worth in excess of £100. A celebration of all things natural and taking small steps to make big differences to out environment. UpCircle skincare is all about doing the right thing and getting the best results. 
ABOUT UpCircle - It started with a thought: if we’re throwing away a cafetière full of coffee grounds every morning, how much is going to waste from coffee shops all over London? 
A lot, as it turns out. So UpCircle decided to do something about it. Finding a way to give those coffee grounds a new lease of life. And UpCircle was born. The UpCircle story started with the idea of giving used coffee grounds a new lease of life. They have now transformed more than 250 tonnes of the stuff into our sustainable skincare. 
The journey began collecting coffee grounds from one coffee shop, they now collect from hundreds of coffee houses across London – the list is always growing! 
Creating a positive environmental impact is at the heart of what they do at UpCircle. Wanting to leave the world better than how they found it. When it comes to the environment we are all constantly bombarded with intimidating doom and gloom headlines. The scale of the problem can feel so daunting that it’s all too easy to give up before you’ve even begun. So, at UpCircle, they try to focus on positive change and keep an “every little helps” mentality. 
And as well as being 100% natural, this skincare range is also 100% brilliant. Because you shouldn't have to choose between doing the right thing and getting the best results. With UpCircle, you get to enjoy the uplifting benefits of nature's own skin rejuvenators - and do the planet some good, too. 
That's all round better skincare. 
But, it didn’t happen overnight. 
Skincare is a crowded market, and ‘natural’ is the new “normal”. Each product in this amazing range sources and rescues by-products from other industries – the food and drink industry in particular. In recent years we have seen the dramatic rise of natural, then organic, then vegan and cruelty-free beauty, but we believe circular / by-product beauty will be the next step – we’re proud to be pioneering that movement. 
THE MISSION 
The circular economy sits at the heart of what we do – they even named ourselves after it! UpCircle also hints at ‘upcycling’, the process of making something better from things that already exist. The ultimate mission is to leave the world better than how they found it by transforming ingredients that would otherwise be discarded into natural, organic beauty products – better for you, better for the world. 
THE VISION 
To provide competitively priced, high performing products from upcycled ingredients, demonstrating that the beauty industry can become a lot less wasteful – it is an innovative approach and a fresh perspective. But, all of this effort is futile if the industry is not willing to open its arms to what-would-be waste ingredients. So… is the beauty world ready? Well, if our success is anything to go on, it looks like the answer is yes. Hallelujah. 
THE INGREDIENTS THEY UPCYCLE 
UpCircle believe in asking the same questions of our beauty products that we would our food products – what is inside, how is it made, who is making it and why are they making it? 
1/3 of all food produced is wasted. It’s one of the most wasteful industries in the world meaning that it gives companies like this a huge number of ingredients from which to do better things. Food ingredients can have powerful effects on the body - inside and out – so there’s an opportunity for us to create beauty products from food ingredients that’re being discarded yet still have much to offer our skin. 
120 billion units of packaging are produced every year by the global cosmetics industry, bulked out by the use of complex lids, multi-layered boxes and cellophane, much of which is superfluous, non-recyclable and ends up in our landfills and oceans. 
The packaging across our range is 99% plastic-free.

ABOUT FAITH IN NATURE 
Faith In Nature started back in 1974. They had a vision of what could be possible one day. A belief that the best companies could be ethical. That natural could be affordable. That doing right by the planet and its people was not only a choice, but a duty. Change doesn't always come quickly. But that's exactly why Faith matters so much! Natural, Vegan, Cruelty Free and Ethical aren’t just buzzwords to FAITH IN NATURE, they are the basis of everything they do. 
We love that one of the things people love most about these products is how wonderful they smell. But the credit should really go to nature — because everything in the range has 100% natural fragrance.

We asked some friend and family what simple plastic swaps they’re making to help reduce their plastic waste. 
We’ve noticed some common simple swaps, such as green fingers growing their own veggies, taking a reusable bag to the shops and going to farmers markets to purchase loose products. we are pleased to say some of your top ideas are now stocked in our ECO shop https://www.rubyandtheangel.co.uk/webshop/ruby-the-angel-eco/ 
We are constantly sourcing more Planet Loving gifts so keep up to date with how we are doing on our Social media channels or through he website.......thanks ECO WARRIORS! 
Marion: 
I use a reusable water bottle 
Buy loose fruit and veg un-bagged 
Have a bag for life/tote in my bag to use instead of plastic shopping bags 
Shop at local retailers who are leaders in plastic-free, buy British retailing 
Jo: 
I’m proud to say I’ve been growing my own vegetables and herbs in some of my planters since lockdown! 
I’ve started using the local green grocers (fruit is fresh, not in bags or any packaging at all). 
Julie: 
Always mindful of buying fruit/vegetables loose without plastic bags. 
Alan: 
I’ve returned to blocks of soap rather than bottled soap 
Moved to who gives a crap toilet paper – no plastic packaging and supporting building toilets campaign 
Buying local from the farm shop – take in your own containers for meats, fruit and veg 
Milk delivered rather than buying at the supermarket 
Rather than using plastic plant pots I use toilet rolls cut in half! 
Sarah: 
I use soap instead of buying shower gels. 
I’m also going to make more effort to go to those local refilling stations for my everyday products 
Terry: 
Instead of using Sellotape when wrapping presents, I try to wrap in tissue paper without tape and use reusable giftbags instead. 
Many teabags used to contain plastic although I think most companies have got better with this. I try to drink loose leaf tea or buy Pukka which have been plastic free for a while. 
I carry around reusable cutlery when out and about so don’t have to use the plastic disposable ones provided in supermarkets. 
I’m also growing my own tomatoes on the windowsill. 
Alice: 
I have swapped from buying toilet roll at the supermarket to having ‘Who Gives A Crap’ plastic free toilet roll as it’s plastic free. 
Emma: 
I swapped to metal straws as a reusable alternative to paper straws. 
Compostable coffee pods from GRIND that can be put onto the compost heap. 
In beauty products I am very aware of unnatural/ plastic ingredients and packaging and have started enuring my cosmestics are palm oil free and chemical free 
I try to buy from local and UK based businesses. Loads of these sell their groceries, fruit and veg in loose form, which reduces plastic. 
Amy: 
I have swapped out cling film for beeswax. 
I have let myself run out of cling film and now only use beeswax. I rinse them after use, fold, and store in my kitchen drawer. 
I also carry a handy fold-up bag in my handbag at all times. 
We'd love to hear your own swaps in the comments below.
