We think it’s important to use business as a force for good. We support charities and organisations run by passionate people with big ideas who are working hard to make a difference to our planet and its people. Whether hosting fundraising initiatives, donating profits or giving away products, here’s some of the charity work we’re proud to have been involved with:
WasteAid works with marginalised communities around the world to provide waste management training and education that aims to ensure the safe and sustainable disposal of products. Our donations help WasteAid get closer to their goal of reducing pollution caused by incorrect waste disposal and improve living conditions in some of the world's poorest communities.
Love Welcomes helps women in refugee camps and those who have been resettled by providing essential life skills training and creative classes in sewing, weaving, pattern cutting, crochet and ceramics using fabrics diverted from landfill. We stock a selection of their handmade products - made using our fabrics - in our eco gift shop.
Furnishing Futures create spaces that support the emotional and physical health of women and families affected by furniture poverty and/or domestic abuse. They rely on product donations from interior stylists and homeware brands like us.
Set up by interior designers Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock in 2020, TP Caring Spaces’ mission is simple: "use great design to transform utilitarian spaces into havens for carers, patients and families". In April 2023 we hosted an auction in aid of TP Caring Spaces, raising over £700 by auctioning 11 beautiful lampshades that had been handpainted by our Haines Curates designers.
Like us, the team at Yodomo are on a mission to reduce waste. They collect textile remnants from businesses and brands to provide makers around London with materials for creative art projects, upcycling and crafting. Passionate about promoting the reuse of materials and celebrating the expertise of independent makers, their sustainable specialists teach valuable crafting skills through video guides and workshops. To date, we’ve donated over 200kg of surplus fabrics to Yodomo.
