In a Nutshell
Smallchanges was started in 2010 by a small team who care about the planet and believe in sustainability. We know that our everyday choices leave a long-term legacy for our families, the environment and communities worldwide. Smallchanges is here to offer real alternatives to the Ethical Consumer at an affordable price.

Peadar is the creator of Smallchanges, and started his investigation into a chemical-free organic lifestyle whilst undergoing several cancer treatments. He comes from a background in Purchasing, and has neatly transferred his skills to researching ethical products and getting the best possible price for our customers. Peadar is also an Irish Speaker and always welcomes the opportunity to have a chat as Gaeilge
The Smallchanges name was born from the idea that we can all make small lifestyle changes that benefit ourselves and our families, the environment, and wider communities. As consumers, we all have incredible power to force positive change. It can be daunting, other family members may have different ideas, and we are most unlikely to change all our habits at once.
Remember that making just one small change will have a positive impact, and one small change may lead to another, as you become more mindful of the long-term benefits. Smallchanges is here to offer you sustainable eco-friendly choices. We take care of Ethical sourcing and Affordability, so you can make the changes that matter most to you.
Your choices may benefit the environment, people's health & wellbeing, independent traders, local producers, biodiversity and wildlife, animal welfare and the list goes on. Something as simple as changing your household cleaners to the alternative environmentally friendly version is a positive move. Switching some of your food shopping to organic will avoid agrochemicals and minimise damage to wildlife and the environment.
Ethical Sourcing and Affordability
Our philosophy is to provide our customers with a variety of ethically sourced products at an affordable and reasonable price. We believe passionately that nobody should be denied the opportunity to have a positive impact due to cost. Building sustainability measures into your life doesn't have to be expensive and reasonable pricing is one of our key principles. Other things on our minds are...
Reducing the impact of toxic chemicals - Rethinking the food we eat - Reducing Energy demands - Considering the impact of transport - Shopping & acting locally - Education - Encouraging Community spirit - Influencing other companies to be ethically responsible
We don't make any extravagant claims about the products that we stock. We don't engage in "Green Washing" and we don't pretend to be something that we aren't.
Why Use Eco Friendly Products?
We believe that the presence of synthetic, man made chemicals is having a terrible impact on our health, our environment and our society.
Can you be sure that the products that you are using at home aren't having a detrimental effect on you and your family's health? A lot of the products that you use on a daily basis don't give you a full breakdown of the chemicals that they contain.
We believe that being exposed to such a cocktail of toxic chemicals in confined spaces is extremely damaging.
Every time that we flush these products down our drains, we are posing huge problems on our planet. Unfortunately, due to decades of neglect and underfunding our national water system is riddled with leaks. Can we be sure that the chemicals we are disposing of ever make it to our local water processing plant, or are they leaking out and contaminating our local environment?
