Jen and Faye run SustainaBrum, a website directory and Instagram account aimed at raising the profile of Birmingham’s sustainable businesses. It’s a resource for those looking to find sustainable shops, restaurants or services – they aim to take the hard work out of making more sustainable purchasing decisions!
Their website includes a map for finding businesses near you, or you can search by category – they have featured restaurants, bars and bakeries, sustainable homeware brands, hairdressers, soap and beauty product makers, ethical clothing brands, jewellers, a greeting card maker, a party hire company, a borrow shop, sustainable furniture makers and so much more!
They are currently planning their first in-person event – a SustainaBrum Sustainable Christmas Market at Attic Brew Co, a local brewery in Stirchley in Birmingham on the 20th November – come along to pick up sustainable Christmas gifts for your loved ones, whilst enjoying a locally brewed beer!
Jen and Faye are also keen to hear from other Birmingham-based businesses who consider themselves environmentally and / or socially sustainable, to help them grow their green database!
