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.

Elephant Branded

Elephant Branded Clipper

One Elephant...One Idea. Supporting education in Africa and Asia.

Why do some children have the right to an education whilst others don't? By buying one of their products, they will donate a school kit to a child in Africa or Asia. Simple as that.

Elephant Branded aim to make a positive, long term, and sustainable change to the communities that produce their products and the children that receive their school kits. One Elephant...One Idea.

You buy one ethically made, recycled bag or related product and they will give one ergonomically designed school bag and kit to a child in Africa or Asia. Simple as that. Elephant Branded pay a fair, competitive wage to local villagers who make their bags out of locally sourced, recycled materials. Not only do they get a fair, reasonable wage but they also have the opportunity to learn valuable skills that permit them to have a sustainable, effective way to get out of poverty. Then they sell it to people like you. The Elephant has just stepped outside. Now we have to keep him there.

Turtle Cup

Turtle Cup is on a mission to reduce plastic waste. In the UK alone, 2.5 billion coffee cups are thrown away each year. Many people believe that coffee cups are recycled. The reality is that just 1 in 400 coffee cups are recycled, and we want this to end. We LOVE our coffee, but we don’t want it to cost the earth!

They want to go a step further and walk-the-walk rather than just talk-the-talk. Thats why with every sale, they donate 50p to charities who’s mission it is to end single use plastic and clean up our oceans.

As well as this, Turtle Cup are a carbon neutral company. All of the carbon generated in the manufacturing process, and in the delivery of our cups to customers,  is offset through schemes and projects which reduce carbon output.

Our orders are handled by a fulfilment company called James & James, who are one of the only Soil Association-Certified fulfilment companies in the UK.

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!

They work in partnership with domestic abuse charities, who refer women to us once they have moved on from a women's refuge. They provide free training to our makers, who are then paid to make the beautiful decorations we sell.

​Their handmade, sustainable decorations start out as paper that has come to the end of its original life. Rather than ending up in landfill or in a dusty attic, they give paper a new life as something beautiful. Their skilled designers and makers transform these raw materials into flowers. The magic happens with little more than scissors, glue, wire and a little bit of love and imagination.
