Uniting people with brands that care

More This. Less That. is a curated sourcebook that aims to bring more people together with the brands that are making a positive difference. Living mindfully can be complicated, we want to make it simple.

Founded by Katherine and Rachael, whose friendship came about through Instagram, over a shared passion for ethical living and and the many amazing independent brands they’d discovered on the platform. They wanted to collate all of these brands in one easily accessible place to make it easier for others to find and support them too.

DISCLAIMER

Whilst we have carefully chosen each brand in our directory according to their ethical practices, the specific information we have presented was taken directly from their respective websites. Where there was not enough information or we felt brands were too vague in describing their ethics we chose not to include them. For those brands of which we are happy customers, we may also include our own thoughts and opinions of their products. Happily, we have got to know many of the founders of the brands featured, which has only furthered our confidence and trust in their ethical standing.
