Hello! Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Welcome to Live Frankly.
Our aim is to support the independent companies who are doing business better. We’ve been working in this space for coming up to six years now and the Live Frankly website has been a year in the making.
We were planning to launch with a huge fan-fare – a pop-up shop in Soho, 10 days of events, plus supper clubs hosted in tandem with some of our favourite chefs and restaurants. But along came coronavirus, and all that wasn’t meant to be.
But we won’t let that stop us. We believe now is as important a time as ever to be supporting the businesses who bring such value to our lives.
The independent farmers, growers and fishers who care about the environment and biodiversity, and have exceptionally high animal welfare and sustainable fishing practices.
The chocolate and coffee brands that pay a fair price to farmers, too often exploited, across the world.
The restaurants who currently have had to close, but who have always supported these farmers, growers and fishers. The restaurants who, when they reopen, will need us to support them, too.
The fashion brands who have turned their backs on sweatshops and toxic chemicals to create stylish and beautiful clothing that protect the environment and the people who make them.
The beauty brands that use genuinely natural and organic ingredients that are kind to your skin and kind to the planet.
You get the picture. So, we’ve decided to launch quietly to connect you with all these brilliant brands, some of who we have worked with for years, who fly under the radar.
If you need food deliveries, we’ve got you. If you want to shop to lift your spirits, well, we’ve got that covered, too. Plus, you can feel especially great about all your purchasing choices because you are investing in small businesses that support communities. It’s a pretty virtuous circle for simply shopping and eating.
We are a brand new website and this is only the beginning!
We would love to hear your feedback on what you love, what we can improve, and who you think deserves to be featured.
It would be brilliant for you to come on the journey with us.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Keep well, stay sane.
Lizzie and Lydia
