We The Curious is a science centre and educational charity in Bristol.
Our online shop is a small, curated sample of the myriad products we have on-site in our venue shop on Bristol harbourside. Through our product selection, we aim to represent one of our manifesto pledges – sustainable futures. Our online shop is kindly supported by the West of England Combined Authority’s business growth grant.
We don’t have all the answers about sustainability and we don’t claim to be experts. We’re constantly learning and working every day to improve our environmental impact.
By supporting suppliers who prioritise sustainability, we can make an important contribution towards sustainable development. This means making better choices about what we buy and who from.
Products have environmental impacts throughout their life-cycle from the raw materials and energy used to manufacture and supply them, to the way they are recycled or managed at the end of their lives. We have a responsibility to sell products with low impacts.
By promoting sustainable purchasing practices, We The Curious can provide industry with real incentives for developing green technologies. Our aim is also to act as a role model for our visitors, other organisations and our suppliers.
Our online shop won the Income Generation category in Arts Council England and Digital Culture Network’s Digital Culture Awards.
