Doing Good

We are a non-profit social enterprise so, when you buy from us, at least 60% of the profits are donated to partners and community projects that make your world better; the rest is invested in the business so we can do more good - no 'fat cat' shareholders here!

Our 5 Rs

A better way to use our resources

Most people will tell you about the 3Rs but we think that their approach is wrong – they want you to think about the waste you produce but the real, and far bigger, problem happens long before you walk to your bin.

Every kilo of 'stuff' we buy uses about 8½ kilos of the Earth's resources, and most of this extra material becomes polluting waste; and, as if that's not bad enough, some precious metals we need may even run out by 2030 (Cohen, 2007)

Sustainable living starts before the purchase, before the Earth is ruined, humans exploited, animals harmed, and bribes paid – it starts with us not placing that order – using less, means less waste.

1. Reject...

Don't buy it in the first place! Find more useful things to do with your time and money.

2. Rethink...

Choose alternatives that waste fewer resources, like rechargeable batteries.

3. Reduce...

Conserve resources – water, energy, and environments that recycle them for free.

4. Reuse...

Service, repair, upgrade, or give/swap with someone who can use it.

5. Recycle...

A last resort, where materials are recovered not wasted.


We want to help you see how this adds to your life - saving your time and hard earned money so you spend less of it working and more doing the really important stuff like being with friends and family and celebrating being a part of Nature.
