More and more there is a shift towards conscious consumerism.

It’s important what we surround ourselves with; the things we choose to have in our homes, the clothes we choose to wear, the products we choose to put on our bodies, and the food we choose to eat. Not just our personal choices but the choices we make for our children and families too.

Not just because these choices impact the planet (which is obviously super important) but they impact our health, wellbeing and lifestyle too.


Making sure we live our lives as ethically as we can is really important to us as a family, which is why I’ve been looking forward to telling you all about ‘Atlist’ – which will make being a conscious consumer easier than ever before.

Atlist is an Ethical Wishlisting Community that helps you find and buy ethical products. You can set up your own ethical wishlists and easily add products from your favourite online shops and share your lists with your friends and family.


We can all have good intentions about wanting the decisions we make as consumers to be as green and ethical as possible but it can feel overwhelming at times. There is so much information out there for us to digest and some of it is often contradictory. Plus if you try to make the perfect environmental purchase or try to change everything all at once you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself.

A more balanced approach is to try and make small manageable changes when you can. Let go of trying to be ethically perfect – as that’s almost impossible to achieve. We are learning all the time about the things we can improve on as a family. If we can all make a few simple changes, we can make a big difference to the impact we are leaving on our planet.

When shopping for ethical products online it can often require a little bit of patience and a lot of searching to find the thing you are after. That’s why Atlist have put together a core team of bloggers who have expertise in slow fashion, ethical health and wellbeing, ethical make-up, eco friendly holidaying, and zero waste. 


I am so thrilled to be part of the ethical blogging team and together, we provide a wealth of inspiration, so rather than scour the Internet for the perfect ethical yoga mat or the best ethical beauty products you can look at what we have saved in our recommended Atlists.

how to shop ethically

Through my experience as a yoga teacher and massage therapist and over the last few years blogging about slow living and wellbeing, I have had the pleasure to come across lots of small independent brands and ethical companies that have a wonderful ethos. It’s great to be able to share some of my favourite products with you and some of the brands that I use time and time again. 

I have curated lists around slow children’s fashion, natural health and beauty, how to create a slow home and more.

How it works….

Atlist is invite-only and I have a link to share with you that will allow you to sign up (see below).

Then you simply add stuff to your wishlists from your favourite shops, a bit like pinning to a Pinterest board, plus all images link to an item you can purchase. Then you share your lists with your friends and family.

You can sign up here using this special link.

It would be wonderful to see some familiar faces over there. Do swing by and say hi, I would love to see what your favourite ethical shops are too.
