We have partnered with the UK charity WasteAid by donating 10% of all our profits to support their work, allowing your money to grow projects which are working towards a more sustainable future.
WasteAid is a UK registered charity set up by waste management professionals to tackle the global waste crisis. 2 billion people do not have their waste collected and 3 billion do not have decent waste disposal, and as a consequence waste ends up in rivers and ultimately the oceans. WasteAid works with communities in low-income countries to address the root causes of poverty, climate change and marine plastic pollution. WasteAid shares waste management knowledge and skills with communities in low-income countries; trains people to become self-employed recycling entrepreneurs; and influences decision-makers and the donor community to increase spending on waste management from the current 0.3% to 3% of international development aid.
Local charity supported
We are proud to use a local social enterprise charity to engrave our bamboo straw products, and this also allows us to offer our personalised bamboo straw service.
They are a UK registered social enterprise charity which is passionate about enabling people to develop confidence, learn skills, forge friendships and gain employment. They work with people from a wide range of backgrounds, making products in their workshop. They design and develop their own products in-house as well as taking orders for woodworking and engineering projects.
The Workshop work business-to-business as well as for private customers and enjoy coming up with innovative and creative solutions for all kinds of requests! They also carry out restoration work as well as offering bespoke CNC routing and laser-engraving services. If someone wants something made, they are always excited to discuss it with them! All aspects of their project present opportunities for their clients to learn and develop new skills within a friendly, dynamic and community rooted business and their customers enable them to help them on their journey.
We're against waste, so if our products don't meet our quality standards we donate them to local charities near us.
