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.

Seesaw Toys

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.

Organic Pleasures

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?


55 Bernard Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6SL

Cracking little shop in the heart of Leith. Although it sells Scottish crafts, don't think for a second it's the same sort of tartan tat you'd find in the tourist zones. They also come with a splendid all-ethical produce guarantee.
