Blue Patch is the home of sustainable business

Shoppers have a growing awareness of environmental impact and are actively seeking out products and services that are local, well-made and have sustainable values.

Many amazing businesses are not only creating wonderful things, they are also supporting biodiversity, reducing their emissions and doing all they can to be greener.

If this sounds like you, or if you would like help to get started on your sustainability journey – come and join us at Blue Patch!

We advocate local production, ethical values and brilliant design

Well done Blue Patch for being on the leading edge of the curve and thanks for promoting Laura’s Loom. I have to say of all the groups I’ve joined (and left) over the years, the only group that I feel really cares about my business is Blue Patch. You’re always finding ways to help promote your members in a way that I’ve never experienced with any other marketing group. It makes being a member more than worthwhile, so thanks for that too.
