We make beautiful things out of materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. Everything we use to make our accessories has been something else in a previous life.
Handmade in a small studio in London.
We are a London-based group of designers, journalists, photographers and ethical experts united by the idea of doing something about our everyday waste.
All our products are made of materials that make us squeak with delight - think leather offcuts beautiful paper made of disposable coffee cups and even gorgeous zips made of those used plastic bottles we are all guilty of using.
Our philosophy is based on making everyone part of the solution. We believe that by making everyday choices every one of us can make a huge difference. So we are creating products people want at a price they can afford, so the more we sell, the more waste we can take out of the system.
We put all our profits back into BEEN to make ethical essentials more accessible and - in our ideal world - mainstream.
We hope you'll enjoy your BEEN products for decades to come, and we are about to launch a recycling scheme, so that you can send us your end of life BEEN products and we make sure their story continues as something else.
And we promise to only make essentials, the things you would need to buy anyway, so that living sustainably becomes a part of your daily life and not just a luxury add-on.
We'd love to hear from you, so please do get in touch. And we hope you love our products as much as we do.
