Harry Specters

Harry-chocs

Award-winning flavours and positive social change, that’s us at Harry Specters. Mona, Shaz and their son Ash, who has autism, are behind this social enterprise. While visiting a chocolate shop on a holiday in Scotland in 2011, Mona discovered a perfect way of combining her passion for creating positive change for people with autism with her love for chocolate. Ash came up with the name and a year later, Harry Specters was born - dedicated to crafting the most delicious chocolates that create employment for young people with autism.

They are involved in every aspect of the business – from making and packaging the products to administration, design and photography. The chocolates have won numerous awards for their taste and hundreds of young people with autism have a brighter future. Every lovingly handcrafted bar and chocolate helps improve the lives of people with autism.

For every £1 of profit made at Harry Specters, Mona and Shaz decided that 60p would be set aside for furthering the social aims of the business, providing social activities for their invaluable employees as well as opportunities for their personal development.

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!
