Sustainable Plastic Free Alternatives

Company profile

Hello. We're Colette & Charlie. We're sisters and best friends (most of the time) and we both live in West Sussex.

Colette loves vintage clothing, chocolate, country walks, flea markets and will give a home to anything old and unloved. Charlie calls it rubbish, Colette calls it treasure. Her nickname is The Womble.

Charlie loves sewing, horses, strawberry gin and true crime. She used to have a life and hobbies but then she had children. Her nickname is Bear. No one can remember why but probably because she is big and hairy.

What we both are, is passionate about living a more eco-friendly and sustainable life. Our aim is to be as zero waste and low impact as possible. We choose biodegradable, compostable or recyclable packaging over plastic and use natural products which are not only free from toxins but are cruelty-free, ethical and sustainable too.

We think that small changes can add up to a big difference and we fully believe that it is not about a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly - it's about millions of people doing it imperfectly. 

Our suppliers

We support other small businesses like ourselves and we only work with suppliers who share our values and ethos. Most of our suppliers are UK-based and we always try and source products as locally as possible. We thoroughly research each and every one to ensure that they are ethical and we always include information about them on the product page so you can see for yourself.

All our suppliers have a love and passion for what they do, and we think this shines through in their beautiful products. And for most of them, what started as a business relationship has turned into a friendship. Together with you, our customers, they are what makes our business so enjoyable.  

We invest all our profits back into growing Vera-Bee. We are constantly stocking new brands and products. And we get very excited whenever a box arrives from a new supplier.
