For Her


Elvis & Kresse

Since 2005 Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities.

In 2005 Elvis & Kresse had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When they learnt that London's damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill they mounted a rescue. They set up Elvis & Kresse to save it. For over a decade none of London’s fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 170 tons of material has been reclaimed.

In 2017 the Burberry Foundation partnered with Elvis & Kresse to tackle the even greater global problem of leather waste. This Five-year partnership will see at least 120 tonnes of leather off-cuts from Burberry recrafted into new luxury items, designed and sold by Elvis & Kresse.

Stand4 Socks

Stand 4 Socks

"What if socks could change the world?"

Stand4 started by this simple statement when founder Josh Turner said this amongst friends casually. A bold concept, but when you stop and think about it, most of us wear socks....and if each pair has a positive impact, then why can't socks change the world?

This is because socks are rarely donated, as we wear through them and wouldn't donate old smelly socks with holes - unlike old coats or shoes. Leading to lots of foot issues for the people most in need. They went out and created the most suitable sock for homeless people, donating a pair with each we sell.

Currently our socks support 11/17 of the sustainable development goals. Allowing you to stand for a different cause each day of the week. This is represented by a small cause logo on the ankle of the sock, from education to gender quality and much more. Your sock purchase could be powering a hospital, clearing landmines to planting trees!

GlobalWAKEcup

GlobalWAKEcup was born after old friends Buffie and Nick got together to reminisce about their time together in the music industry.

Nick says "Having put the world to rights, we got chatting about David Attenborough's now iconic Blue Planet II series and realised we both wanted to do something about the single-use plastic issue it raised... Along with Blue Planet and the film A Plastic Ocean, this fact gets us out of bed every single day" 

Each year 100 billion single-use coffee cups end up as landfill, that's enough to fill The Royal Albert Hall a 1000 times over

But with a problem this big, where do you start? The thinking behind what they do is part education and part real world solutions, backed up with 10% of profits going directly to their charity partners - The Marine Conservation Society. They believe small changes to our daily routine when multiplied across the globe can make a huge difference to our shared Oceans...... "It's only 1 plastic straw said 7.7 Billion people" is a line that has helped inform our thinking and also "If you can't reuse it , refuse it"..... In addition to the alternatives to single-use cups, bottles, straws and bags we offer, GlobalWAKEcup also get stuck in with beach cleans and promote initiatives like Plastic Free July. They are also planning some very special events with our new friends at The Royal Albert Hall and have talks, podcasts and workshops in the pipeline with some influential artists, musicians and actors all contributing their thoughts on sustainability and other environmental topics.

The UK Government estimates our total annual coffee cup waste equates to 30,000 tonnes and suggest that by 2025 more than 3.75 billion disposable cups could be used per year in the UK alone - staggering! What's worse is that of those 3.75B disposable coffee cups currently used, just 0.25 % are recycled. Our reusable WAKE products are made from sustainable, recyclable materials like farmed bamboo, stainless steel and double-walled glass. More and more of us are turning our backs on the throw-away society, so join the revolution by only choosing reusable.........WAKEcup and smell the coffee!

Madlug

Madlug was founded in 2015 by Dave Linton. A man whose only experience in the luggage industry was bags of enthusiasm. This 40-something Youth Worker was heartbroken to learn that most children in care transport their worldly belongings in a bin bag. In that moment, Dave set out to do something about it. With just £480, he started Madlug and came up with a ‘Buy one Give one’ approach: for every bag you purchase, one will be given to a child in care.

There are over 90,000 children in care in the UK and Ireland. One child enters the UK care system every 15 minutes. What’s more, over half are victims of neglect or abuse. Because children in care aren’t given a voice, the public don’t know about the problems they face every day. Which is why it’s so important that their story is heard.

Rubies in the Rubble

Food&Drink

Rubies in the Rubble founder, Jenny, started reading about the problem of food waste after seeing the amount of discarded produce at fruit and veg markets across London. Beautiful mangoes, cranberries & tomatoes all headed for landfill, often because they simply didn't look right.

Although much of the discarded produce is perfectly edible, much is thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections, over-forecasted demand or inefficiency in storing & distributing.

The scale of the problem of food waste got Jenny thinking about what could be done with all this surplus product. Surely there was a way of creating delicious, first-class product using excess produce?

Armed with some family recipes and car-bootful of rescued fruit and veg from New Covent Garden market, the experimentation in the kitchen began! It wasn't long before...
