Positioning your brand in the right context matters and Blue Patch’s careful curation ensures you stand out from the crowd. We take pride in representing outstanding brands from the UK and Ireland, run by people who value their customers and the environment.

Promote your business

A national social enterprise, Blue Patch shines the spotlight on your sustainable and ethical achievements via our journal, newsletter, social media and the Positive Shopping campaign.

Protect the planet

With every member that joins, we give, linking your business with highly impactful sustainable outcomes.

We do this through investing every penny of our surplus income into community-owned renewable energy projects. Our Commitment.

Since 2019 we’ve invested in Brighton Energy Coops’ Solar Schools, Low Carbon Hub, Oxfordshire, and EGNI Coop, Glamorganshire, Wales. Money from these investments comes back to support further promotions for our sustainable members.

Blue Patch is designed to help everyone: members, communities and the environment’

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.

Global Impact Members

Although Blue Patch has a focus on UK and Irish business, we believe international partnerships are essential. Climate change is a one planet issue and we have a lot to give and a lot to learn from each other. If you have a business that is supporting communities, biodiversity and carbon reduction in another country we’d love to hear what you do!
