is One – Revisit our Most Read Stories

Happy 1st Birthday to us! Revisit some of our most-read stories of the past 12 months

Today marks one year since we launched the new digital platform – and what a year it has been! 

Since relaunching the site we’ve published almost 500 articles covering all aspects of sustainable living – from ethical fashion and beauty, to simple tips for living more consciously and stories of social justice – written by more than 40 star and expert contributors, as well as members of the Eco-Age team

From last year’s GCFAs, to opening our new Milan HQ, launching the Eco-Age Brandmark, reaching 100k followers on Instagram, our YouTube live stream from the Chopard Bond Street Boutique opening, to gaining 3,000 website members sign-ups (sign-up here – it’s free!) – there have been many, many highlights.

Thank you to all of our readers and contributors for helping us to spread the message of sustainability. 

So in celebration of our first birthday, we are revisiting some of your favourite articles from the past year:
