Handmade by Helen

Handmade by Helen is based in Creswell. A cottage industry maker with an ethical core, aiming to produce crochet based items that help to reduce plastic use in the home. Helen is recognised as a Plastic-free Champion business by the Surfers Against Sewage organisation. One of the most popular items Helen makes are the re-usable face scrubbies which are used for everyday face washing and make-up removal instead of single-use wipes. Here are some of the ways Helen has actively cut plastic from her business: ~ Using 100% cotton yarn (synthetic-free) which is sourced locally and bought packaging-free ~ Using bamboo crochet hooks which are composted when they break ~ Using paper bags for purchases at craft fayres ~ Using recycled brown paper and tissue paper for postal orders Buying wool produced in the UK and from local shops has a much lower carbon footprint than synthetic products manufactured and shipped from abroad and it also eliminates the plastic packaging which they inevitably arrive in. Helen buys mainly from Old Bolsover Yard and Boo’s in Dronfield so a perfect example of a local business supporting other local businesses. It’s then up to us as consumers to support these efforts and spend our money with local people who are trying to do better!
