Plastic Free, Zero Waste, Eco-friendly Products

 

Sustainably Sourced 

At Vera-Bee, we hand pick and source all our products through extensive research to find those that are the kindest to you, our environment and the wildlife we share our planet with. Make the switch to to our sustainably-sourced, zero waste and plastic-free products, and you’ll never look back. 

All our suppliers have a love and passion for what they do, and we think this shines through in their beautiful products. Everything we stock is palm oil-free and cruelty-free and the majority are vegan-friendly. The only products that aren’t suitable for vegans are our beeswax wraps and Shade sunscreen. So, we also stock Amazinc! a vegan-friendly sunscreen and vegan wax wraps.

We believe in being part of the solution. You won’t find any plastic in our packaging and we reuse packaging received from our suppliers.

Natural. Sustainable. Plastic Free.

About Us

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”  Robert Swan

Colette Charlie Eco Warriers

Vera-Bee was created by us, Colette and Charlie, two sisters from West Sussex. We are both parents – Colette’s daughter is at University studying nursing and Charlie can normally be found running around after her two young sons. We know how busy life can be.

Passionate about going plastic-free and using natural products free from chemicals, we’ve hunted high and low to find products that are truly kind to the planet. We wanted to take the hard work out of finding natural, palm oil-free, sustainable, plastic-free and cruelty-free alternatives to everyday products at affordable prices. All our products are priced at RRP supporting fairtrade for all. We think that small changes can add up to a big difference and we fully believe that it is not about a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly – it’s about millions of people doing it imperfectly. Together, we can make a real difference. 

Our name Vera-Bee comes from our beautiful Mummy who sadly passed away from ovarian cancer in 2015. We wanted to honour her memory in our business – ‘Vera’ being her name and ‘Bee’ because she loved bumble bees. She passed on her love of them to us, taught us not to be scared of them, and to show them some respect for the vital work they do for our planet.  

So, whether you are already well on your way to living a more sustainable life or you are just taking the first few steps, we are here to make that journey a little easier. 

We love hearing from our customers and visitors to our site so please contact us if you have any suggestions or questions on our products.

With kindness,

Colette & Charlie

We Support One Tree Planted

One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted for every order over £15

One Tree Planted LogoWe are so happy to announce that from 20th September 2019 we will plant a tree in the Amazon for every order over £15.

One Tree Planted are a non profit environmental charity, dedicated to making it easier for individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, fight climate change, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees!

Started in 2014, they have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, they now work with awesome reforestation partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help them get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity. In 2018, they were able to get more trees in the ground than ever before – 1.3 million!

At Vera-Bee we are fully behind One Tree Planted, and as we grow as a business, our aim is to plant a tree for every order.  We receive a certificate for the trees planted from your orders. We will keep this updated on a monthly basis on our One Tree Planted Page.

Products

Here’s a sneak peek of our plastic free, zero waste products. Visit our shop to find more.

All of the products we stock are eco-friendly alternatives that we have tried, tested and fallen in love with on our own plastic-free journey. And that is why we are sharing them with you. We hope you love them as much as we do.

We know it can be daunting when looking around at all the plastic in our lives. Our personal tip choose a room – kitchen, bathroom or just one product that needs replacing and start there. You’ll be amazed how quickly you can reduce the plastic waste from your lives. Enjoy the journey!
