sustainability is taking only what you need and leaving the rest for others.
Living with depression and anxiety, I have seen first hand the effect mental illness has one those who are ill, but also those around them. That’s why until 16th May 2021 (inclusive), we will be donating 10% of all sales to Maudsley Charity via Work for Good.

We believe that sustainability isn’t just important environmentally, but also financially. At its heart, sustainability is all about taking only what you need and sharing resources with those who can’t access them.
Initially we started donating to charity in the run up to Valentine’s Day 2021, as a way to help people who find the celebration particularly difficult, while so many businesses gain financially. However, it was so successful and easy to do that we’ve decided to make it a permanent change.
In the run up to key gifting events and holidays, we’ll select charities that benefit groups who may find those times of year difficult, and they rest of the year, we’ll select charities that are personally important to us and those closest to us.
Our donations are made via Work for Good, a platform which allows small businesses like ours to donate to charity legally, by digitising the legal requirements. By using Work for Good to create a Commercial Participation Agreement with each charity we donate to, we ensure all out donations are legal, and boost them using Gift Aid.
