Eco-friendly food and accessories to make you stand out from the crowd this English Summer.

Stay Green

Pineberries At Wimbledon

Whatever happens at Wimbledon this year, come rain or shine, victory or (fairly certain) defeat, you can cut a swathe in the most unlikely of areas: fruit. Strawberries are soooo last year darling, didn’t you know? Show off your ‘‘food-forward’’ credentials and pop open a punnet of pineberries this year. Available from Waitrose, they look like pale strawberries but taste like pineapple! They were recently saved from extinction by Dutch farmers in South America – hoorah!

Scullcandy Earphones At The Polo

Polo has enjoyed a real come-back in recent years. To get in the mood and catch up with the latest tunes, there’s nothing better for your ears (or the environment!) than these gorgeous Skullcandy earphones – they’re the only ones in the world to be made from wood and come in their own little hemp pouch.

Hampers At Henley Royal Regatta

Picnic in style on the banks of the Thames as you watch a plethora of muscular young men row by. You know where to get your organic food, but be sure not to use lots of those horrid plastic utensils that just fill up tips all over the country. Instead, pick up a good quality hamper that you can use over and over again for years to come. Try the Natural Wine Lovers Picnic Hamper from Fortnum & Mason – it’s just £115.
