Welcome to the Green Providers Directory

The Green Providers Directory is the UK’s leading directory of eco-friendly, fair trade and ethical companies. Founded in 2005 by Dr Gary Robertshaw, the directory is free and easy to use. Our green directory provides everything you need for ethical and sustainable living under one roof!

Suppliers are listed in easy-to-use sections, with a brief description of what they provide. Links to a range of renewable energy suppliers, fair trade clothing, organic health and beauty products, energy saving devices, ethical gifts, fair trade bags are provided and much more.

Green living Tips for a greener lifestyle

“Before I flew I was already aware of how small and vulnerable our planet is. But only when I saw it from space, in all its ineffable beauty and fragility, did I realize that human kind’s most urgent task is to cherish and preserve it for future generations.” – Sigmund Jähn

 

Helping to protect the rainforests and endangered species

Protecting the rainforests

Tropical rainforests took between 60 and 100 million years to evolve. They are probably the oldest and most complex land-based ecosystem on earth, containing over 30 million species of plants and animals. That’s half of the Earth’s wildlife and at least two-thirds of its plant species! Rainforests play a central in slowing down climate change.

Links between meat eating and climate change have also been widely known for many years. This is due to deforestation in the Amazon rainforest to make room for cattle grazing. Clearing these forests is estimated to produce a staggering 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, more than the entire transport sector!

 

We promote fair trade products for a fairer world

Fair trade productsFair trade is a social movement that reduces poverty and exploitation. It guarantees producers a price for their goods. As a result the price never falls below the cost of production. All the companies listed in our green directory follow fair trade principles. More than 7 million people in Africa, Asia and Latin America benefit from fair trade. Farmers, farm workers, and their families.

Meat, palm oil and the environment

Sustainable living

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meat production requires massive amounts of land, energy, and water. Globally, animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world’s transportation systems combined! Furthermore, add to that deforestation and the fact that it takes 48 times as much water to produce beef compared to vegetables. For that reason its not hard to see how a rapidly growing human population consuming larger amounts of meat is so detrimental to the environment.

Clearing virgin forests for palm oil plantations is also decimating species such as orangutans and tigers, consequently driving them towards extinction.

Having smaller families, eating less meat and buying foods made with sustainable palm oil. Each has a big impact on the environment because it protects the rainforests and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
