Plastic Freedom was made possible by incredible women out there that have built brands and eco businesses with the environment at the forefront of their business! I will forever champion women owned eco brands and what they continue to create so here is a space specifically for them so you can celebrate them too!

Slow South

As a female founded business we love nothing more than to see women lead brands breaking into the world of plastic free and shaking things up. 

We want to champion these brands, we want to celebrate everything they have accomplished and this is exactly what we will do. 

We have cherry picked a few brands from the site, who are founded by women. Brands we know you will love!

Slow South is based is a dreamy corner of Devon. 

Nestled away in this beautiful part of the country, it's clear to see that the surroundings play a big impact in the design process of the Slow South garments.

Sunny days, road trips and balmy evenings bring inspiration and happy places.
