The Keep Boutique
The Keep has been delighting socially conscious shoppers since 2013, when founder Kate Richards became disillusioned with the high street and quit her job to create a fashion destination with a difference. The result was a haven of cool amid the bustle of Brixton Village, where chic products by ‘brands with true integrity’ hang from artful indoor tree branches. With a focus on sustainable fabrics and timeless shapes, every item has a virtuous backstory – but they never skimp on style. From bamboo socks and toothbrushes to luxe Desmond & Dempsey pyjamas, you’ll find pretty things for gifting and plenty to keep your ethical lifestyle going strong.

Spring at Somerset House
Spring at Somerset House is a restaurant on a mission: to be plastic-free by 2019.
Headed up by Skye Gyngell – the Australian chef and former Vogue food editor who won a Michelin star for Petersham Nurseries Café during her stint as its head chef – Spring eliminated plastic straws in November 2016 and is now looking into bio-degradable clingfilm alternatives, as well as ways to eradicate the use of plastic containers in the restaurant. For dining in a stunning setting – and with a clear conscience, environment-wise – Spring is worth a visit.

Cub is not only sustainable, but also approaches dining in an entirely different way. The restaurant offers a set menu with food and drink pairings which won’t destroy the planet. The restaurant itself is its very own ecosystem, where ingredients are grown on-site to explore the effects of environment on food growth and flavour.
