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.

Page & Bloom

Page & Bloom - Spring Bouquet

Page & Bloom are reinventing floristry with paper flowers, created from repurposed books, maps, sheet music and other preloved papers. Each of their flowers is individually handmade, transforming paper into stunning floral designs.

​Page & Bloom also has a social purpose. They are are a social enterprise created to provide fair employment and opportunities for women who have experienced domestic abuse. They work in partnership with domestic abuse charities, who refer women to them once they have moved on from a women's refuge. They provide free training to their makers, who are then paid to make these beautiful floral displays.

​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 keepsake flowers. The magic happens with little more than scissors, glue, wire and a little bit of love and imagination.

Stand4Socks

Did you know that socks are the most requested item at homeless shelters? But they're rarely donated because we tend to wear through them. This means those in need often experience foot issues.

Stand4Socks aims to make a difference in the lives of those in need. For every pair of socks purchased Stand4Socks donates a specially engineered antibacterial pair to someone in need.

The socks are the most sustainable and ethical out there. The yarns are Oeto-Tex certified sourced, free from harmful chemicals & environmental practices. The family factory where the socks are made meet the highest standards of ethical and responsible supply chains. Even the packaging the socks come in are fully compostable.

Stand4Socks support 11 out of 17 of the UN's sustainable development goals. This means if you only wear Stand4Socks, you're standing for a different cause each day of the week – from powering a hospital, clearing landmines to planting trees.
