CF's June 2024 Sustainable Edit

Welcome to Citizen Femme’s June 2024 Sustainable Edit, showcasing the sustainable collectives on our radar this month.

Including diamond jewellery made with 100 per cent renewable energy, responsible resortwear and a zero-waste restaurant, these are the names making a positive change this June.



Launched only two years ago, LOEV is Switzerland’s first sustainable, lab-grown diamond jewellery brand. With a passion for ethical manufacturing, the brand’s jewellery is crafted with diamonds cultivated using 100 per cent renewable energy, and embellished with 14ct recycled gold, showcasing a vision of sustainability and sophistication. Vintage opulence is a signature style of LOEV; truly beautiful pieces boast a feminine nostalgia and the same allure of mined diamonds. Working to achieve carbon neutral certification, LOEV is committed to reducing its environmental impact whilst offering modern heirlooms that offer peace of mind, and will be passed down through generations.


Grace & Green

Newly launched in the UK, Grace & Green are a female-founded B Corp brand on a mission to make periods more sustainable and inclusive. Every day in the UK, an estimated 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million period pads are flushed down the toilet, which can lead to pollution of our waterways and have a significant impact on wildlife. This range of tampons, pads and liners are all made with 100 per cent organic materials, and are free from pesticides and potentially harmful dyes – to benefit both your body and our planet.


Kudhva, Kip Hideaways

Curating a unique edit of beautiful stays around the country, Kip Hideaway’s sustainable sojourns include the Kudhva cabins in Cornwall. The stilted, tree-house inspired huts lie deep in the woods of an abandoned slate quarry and have been designed as temporary installations, to reduce the impact on the natural environment, and allow local wildlife to flourish. The off-grid location is also powered by solar energy and has a natural water supply, so you can be confident your Cornish stay is a conscious one. Cosy up in the mezzanine bed with views of the coast framed by large geometric windows, or be at one with nature as you take part in wild swimming or a sound bath experience. This is a great spot to spend summer days – and nights – with friends.



This mother-daughter founded, London-based brand was born from an idea to create conscious wardrobe staples to transcend trends – and time. Known for its use of sustainable, contemporary linen designed as resortwear heroes, Arkitaip’s pieces are an ode to escapism with a mindful core. Rooted in respect for the planet, each collection is crafted in Portugal and cut from 100 per cent European, Masters of Linen™ certified linen, a fabric that uses almost 100 times less water than cotton. One per cent of sales is donated to environmental non-profits which the brand decides at the end of each year, making a conscious effort to give back across core environmental issues – including climate, food, land, pollution, water and wildlife.


Art Yard Bar & Kitchen, Bankside Hotel

At Bankside Hotel, in the heart of London’s South Bank, discover Art Yard Bar & Kitchen, a restaurant offering fresh, seasonal dishes in the city’s cultural hub. Their new summer menu champions food upcycling, crafting dishes with repurposed ingredients for eco-conscious cuisine. Sustainable dishes include the slow-cooked beef croquettes – using offcuts of brisket beef from nearby Bermondsey’s O’Shea’s Butchers – and tiramisu marc de café, which uses repurposed coffee grounds. A number of dishes employ zero-waste practices, like the confit globe artichoke dressed with truffle pesto and artichoke crisp – making full use of each vegetable, which are supplied locally by Rushton’s Greengrocer. But it’s not just the food that is committed to upcycling, the restaurant’s choice of crockery is the NO.W Collection from Revol, the brand’s first collection made of recycled wastewater paste.
