Who are we?

Blue Patch is a sustainable business directory with a focus on exceptional products and services from the UK or Ireland.  Read more about our story here.

We are also a social enterprise. All of our surplus profit goes towards supporting our members and investing in renewable energy.

What do we do?

We’ve done all the work for you – we’ve made it easy to discover high quality, sustainable products made in the UK and Ireland.

We seek out high quality businesses that fit our criteria. Brands can apply to become part of our network.

We also do a limited number of events each year. Take a look at our past projects here.

Where are we based?

We are based in Herne Hill, London (pop by for a coffee once Covid is over!), but our members are scattered across the UK and Ireland!

Why do we do this?

We believe that positive change is driven by small steps which add up to make a difference. We also believe in the power of the collective, that together we can achieve great things.

We believe that it is important to raise the profile of businesses in the UK and Ireland, and support all of our local businesses by highlighting the talent present on these isles.

How can you join in?

You can browse our website to discover our brands and buy directly from our members and their official stockists. We do not charge a commission on sales made this way.

If you’re a business that fits our criteria, we’d love to have a conversation about how we could work together.
