Independent Shopping Guide
West Regent Street, Glasgow, www.entrading.co.uk
From the outside, it looks like your average homeware shop, but inside Entrading is stuffed with sustainable and ethical household goods: everything from dishwasher tablets to the dishwasher itself.
Broughton Street and Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh, www.see sawtoys.co.uk.
Everything from organic baby potions and old-fashioned wooden toys to biodegradeable disposable nappies at this warm, family-run pair of shops.
Bank Street, Glasgow, www.bolshieclothing.com
All organic, ethical and sustainable clothing boutique-cum-coffee shop-cum-poetry reading venue, with a classy selection of labels and recycled fashion, a great music policy and an annual pavement catwalk.
Bernard Street, Edinburgh, www.gettoflux.co.uk
This cracking little Leith trader has some spectacularly random gifts, homeware, accessories and Scottish crafts. It's special because everything is absolutely ethical and fairly traded.
Broughton Street, Edinburgh, www.organicpleasures.co.uk
The world's first ethical sex toy-shop, selling non-toxic toys, organic silks, lubes and massage oils and other dirty-but-clean deliciousness. Dear me, are you blushing?
