WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET, BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE.
– Sir Winston Churchill
Part of our business is to sell great eco – conchus products, to help you live a life of less waste with a more earth positive lifestyle. Another big part of our business is to give. We work with some amazing organisations, who have values, missions and aims that are very close to our heart. We donate, promote, collaborate and volunteer, to help them with their cause. There are many, many people doing great things to positively impact the World (we couldn’t work directly with them all!), and if you have a project / charity / organisation that you would like us to consider helping, reach out to us via our contact us page as we’d love to hear about it 🙂 See the main projects and organisations who we work closely with below.
BIG BLUE OCEAN CLEAN UP
We are ambassadors for Big Blue Ocean Clean Up. They do amazing work within the UK, and across the World, to keep our coastlines clean and protect marine wildlife.
We will be joining their beach clean ups, undertaking our own, speaking at local events, and in any other ways that we can, to promote and support their work.
LOVIN SOAP PROJECT
This community project just ‘spoke’ directly to us. Lovin Soap work across the World, in areas of great poverty, teaching micro-business soap making to empower local women. This enables them to support their families and have access to soap for hygiene and disease prevention.
We will be working with them on ongoing projects.
The work that Greenpeace does is incredible. For the environment, for wildlife, for communities and for peace – it’s amazing! They’ve successfully challenged and changed government policies, and have directly impacted the World. They are also not funded by governments or companies, so that they can remain completely independent. We support them and donate as individuals. Keep up the great work!
Less Plastic responds to the endless tide of ocean plastic washing up on our beautiful UK beaches. They raise awareness of the issues caused by the ocean plastic crisis, and provide easy-to-action, ocean-friendly alternatives.
They are do an amazing job of providing inspiration, strategies and educational resources, and we hope to work with them in the future on Less Plastic projects.
