We believe in giving back to the community that supports us, as well as Mother Earth who provides us with the plants of which our products and business are based on. Which is why we have chosen to work with two amazing charities whose ethics and company culture are perfectly aligned with ours; The Black Curriculum and Earth Day.
For each product sold, we donate £1 to each of these charities!

"The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British History in the UK Curriculum. We believe that by delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning through mobilising young people, we can facilitate social change.
As a social enterprise committed to the teaching and support of Black history all year round, the aims include:
1. Provide a sense of belonging and identity to young people across the UK.
2. To teach an accessible, educational Black British History curriculum that raises attainment for young people.
3. To improve social cohesion between young people in the UK."

"Earth Day Network works with global partners to reforest areas in dire need of rehabilitation, including areas with some of the world’s communities most at-risk from climate change and environmental degradation. We have also conducted broad tree planting in the wake of environmental disasters. For example, we have planted over 500,000 trees in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake.
Reforestation helps disadvantaged communities. Most of the world’s forests are located in some of the poorest areas on the earth, and when those forests are depleted, communities are left without their livelihood. Expanding cropland and agricultural systems, building roads and harvesting wood for lumber leads to further deforestation. When logging companies look for new timber, poor communities who depend on the forests are again threatened.
We focus on planting productive tree species that can provide healthy and valuable food resources for local communities. Using regional tree species and allowing the saplings to grow for 6–18 months, The Canopy Project initiatives have high tree survival rates.
Planting trees strengthens local economies. Every dollar spent on reforestation generates $2.50 in local downstream income and benefits.
Help preserve our environment and combat climate change - help us plant tree through The Canopy Project.
