00.thestore’s Sustainable Saturday
To promote mindful giving, carbon-neutral London pop-up 00.thestore brings together 80 climate-conscious fashion, beauty, personal care, plant and accessory labels for the festive period. Running alongside its (non-discounted) retail offerings, its Black Friday tie-in is called Sustainable Saturday (November 26).
00.thestore will host in-person eco-oriented workshops and panel discussions, aimed at both consumers (like plant repotting from east London gardening brand Sowvital) and businesses (such as discussions on how to become B Corp-certified). All its products have recycled packaging – and to fulfil same-day online deliveries, the retailer has partnered with British eco-friendly service Bodo (which uses electric vehicles).
Haeckels Extends Support to Indie Labels
As retail sales suffer amid the cost-of-living crisis, British marine skincare label Haeckels will let 10 smaller, independent businesses take over its shelf spaces in Margate (Kent) and London for Black Friday, while also providing them with marketing support.
