Who We Are
Nature Shop is an online retail company selling premium 'inspired by nature' brands of clothing and footwear that are kind to your body and kind to the environment.
We are a company with a conscience and are passionate about supporting brands with strong ethical and environmental values.
Nature Shop is committed to making a positive difference to the world, with a specific focus on preservation of the natural environment and giving back to those communities who need it.
We are conscious we live in a world of plenty for some and a world of not enough for others and it is our vision to sell products that are produced with environmental and social responsibility in mind. The impact of mass produced, low quality clothing and footwear on our precious environment and communities is immense and we hope to encourage people to be more conscious of where their products come from and the effect of their production.
We believe positive actions, no matter how big or small, towards respecting our planet and all its inhabitants, can make a difference and we hope our small actions will contribute to making our world a better place.
What we Specialise in
Nature Shop specialise in unique, high quality, 'inspired by nature' clothing and footwear for the outdoor and active lifestyles.
We like products 'by nature' and 'for nature'! We want to encourage 'mindful consumerism' as well encourage people to get outdoors! Out amongst nature!
Nature Shop believes in quality and style, and products that are not only here for today, but also here for tomorrow.
We believe in traceability and visibility and stock brands that offer us the chance to see where and how their products are made.
We ensure that all the brands we stock believe in high ethical manufacturing processes as well as, whenever possible, use sustainable fabrics, whether these be natural fibres, recycled or recyclable fabrics.
Meet the Team
We are a small team here at the Nature Shop HQ.
Mel & Josie keep the warehouse running full time, making sure the orders are picked, packed & delivered on time. They run all aspects of the day to day running of the business as well as have their roles they specialise in.
Our Freelance Team are the ones who give us their expertise when it is out of our domain (or comfort zone in terms of coding improvements on the site). We are very lucky to have these trustworthy professionals to help us make Nature Shop the best it can be.
Nature Shop couldn't survive without our software partners and after endless researching and testing, we believe we have integrated the best software options available.

How we Choose our Brands
For us sourcing fantastic products that we believe in and think our customers will also love, is an exciting part of what we are trying to achieve as a company.
1. We have to love the products and wear them ourselves....we need to believe in the products!
2. The products have to be excellent quality that will last past a season (or two, or three, or four.....).
3. The brands have to fit in with what we believe in and be happy and open to show us what they are doing to be as low impact as possible.
4. Ethical/visible supply chains and manufacturing processes with environmental and social responsibility at the forefront of everything they do.
5. Great brands to work with and people within them, we want to forge lasting and honest relationships with the people behind the products.
We know sometimes it is difficult to get everything exactly perfect, but we feel if we follow what we believe in and try our hardest at achieving our goals, then every little thing is a step in the right direction.
