Unisocks – Comfortable and Responsible

As we have become far more aware of the damage that unsustainable cotton farm is causing, UK based brand Unisock chooses to offer a collection of fashionable and environmentally friendly socks.

Unisock only craft their products from GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, which is grown without the use of synthetic fertilisers and harmful pesticides, leaving the soil still fertile, water and air clean.

Moreover, Unisock strives to avoid all the detrimental costs to those who produce the cotton. The farmers receive a premium price for their cotton to help elevate entire communities out of poverty, without being exposed to any toxins.

All the socks are made in a wonderful, family-run factory in sunny Portugal. Most of their employees have been with them for many years, and are treated as a family.

By choosing organic cotton we try to fight the unethical cotton production and make this world just a little bit better.

Real Women and Sustainability

We are collaborating with some very exiting people on new project called “Inspirational Women in Sustainability”. This project explores sustainable ideals of fashion, beauty, travel, food, etc and how this can positively affect the consumer whilst maintaining the alluring and aspirational image of fashion.

The subjects of this exhibition is a selection of women from all ages, ethnicities, backgrounds and walks of life.


We would love to invite you to come and sit and model for this series. We plan to turn it into an exhibition, along with a Portrait Book and interview series about your work in sustainability. Also all your portraits can be used for yourself to help promote your work.

Photographer Evgeniy Kazannik from Green Lens Studios will be taking your photo while Kelly Ekardt will be styling you in sustainable fashion. If you are interested in being involved with this project please let me know and I will get you booked into one of our portrait series dates.

We would ask you to come for half a day, sit for some photos and meet and hang out with other inspirational women.

Thank you for your time and we are looking forward to working with you.

KitMapper - equipment rental network dedicated to creatives


We recently came across KitMapper when we were urgently needed to hire a second Canon EF 24–70mm F2.8 for a job we had on a couple of weeks ago. Although we own a good amount of kit (some of it listed on KitMapper now), we find that there are niche pieces of photographic or AV gear which we require, but not often so it's not cost-effective to invest into kit we may only be using for a job or two, this is why KitMapper is extremely handy. 

If you’re a creative needing for kit for a show, event or exhibition KitMapper will provide you with the equipment you need to make it happen.

Screen Shot 2017-09-29 at 14.39.38.png

Launched in London, KitMapper, the UK’s first equipment rental network dedicated to creatives, has become an important tool for professionals and amateurs needing short-term rentals of creative gear — such as cameras, lenses, lighting, projectors, monitors and TVs, sound recording, VR kit and much more. How often do creative professionals find themselves priced out of the equipment market? Too often. 

The service allows professional creatives who own kit to loan it to users who are looking to hire kit, the prices for hires are set by users with the recommended price of 30-50 percent less compared to rental houses. KitMapper is not only unique in the fact that it is a platform for you to network and borrow from like-minded individuals, both Lister and Renter using KitMapper are covered by their KitMapper Guarantee, a legal rental agreement which makes sure you’re covered should anything happen to the kit whilst it’s out on hire. 

Keep your eyes on their  FacebookTwitter and Instagram to stay updated with KitMapper news. If you haven’t already, go ahead and checkout out our interview on their KitMapper Blog.


We’ve recently joined KitMapper and absolutely love the service and would like to let all our friends and clients know about it. Try it with a special discount using code MAKEITGREEN starting from 29th of September 2017

Best Air-Cleaning Plants, According to NASA

So it's a spring time and we are off to the gardening center so to get some more plants. Houseplants are awesome indoor air cleaners, but some of them are more effective than others at filtering out pollutants and toxic chemicals in the air. This infographic highlights the best air-filtering plants, according to a NASA study.

NASA researchers set out to find the best ways to clean the air in space stations. Their Clean Air study found the plants below are effective at removing benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia from the air—chemicals that have been linked to health effects like headaches and eye irritation. 

There are other benefits to having these plants around, we’ve noted before, but the graphic below from Love the Garden shows you at a glance the plants that make the best natural air filters. NASA research suggests having at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space. (The Snake Plant or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue is pretty hardy, by the way, although not entirely unkillable.)
