Local textiles and homeware brand Skinny laMinx, in collaboration with Jason Bakery, has released a series of punny bread bags.

2. Veja Sustainable Sneakers

Eco-conscious and sustainable shoe brand Veja sources ethically, uses raw materials and chooses not to advertise or market its products, opting instead for this money to be put towards making a positive impact. The brand has just opened its new pared-back store in New York, which also focuses on upchucking other sneaker brands to prevent shoes from ending up in landfills.
