UK’s first sustainable department store opens in Shoreditch.
Ethical online marketplace Blue Patch is transforming a Shoreditch high street for just one week, with the launch of the UK’s very first Sustainable Department Store.
The store, within the Espacio Gallery near Brick Lane, will feature 40 brands and run from 11th to the 16th of December.
Visitors will be able to buy directly from top British brands, join creative workshops, be pampered and solve burning environmental issues all under one roof.
One of the social enterprises taking part, Joanna Hamer of Juta Shoes, explains: “We’re excited to be taking part in the Blue Patch Sustainable Department Store. As a small online business, it’s a great opportunity to meet our customers, show our products and tell our story directly to our community.
