The founders of Bulb, Hayden and Amit, used to work in the energy industry.

  1. Sea2See (Spain, shipping to the UK)

  1. Triodos Bank (Netherlands, with a branch in UK)
Triodos Bank was founded in 1980 as a pioneer in the ethical banking industry and is one of our all-time favorites. Their name is derived from the Greek "τρὶ ὁδος - tri hodos," referring to their three-way approach: people, planet & profit. Their focus is on transparency and on investing - only - in projects that will have a positive impact on the planet. Bonus: Want to know more?
