We consider it our corporate responsibility to share the love and are proud to be able to support many causes which are close to our hearts. In keeping with our philosophy of sustainability, we source ethical suppliers. Two of our favourites are:
Who Gives A Crap was begun when they learnt that 2.5 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that diarrhoea related diseases fill over half of sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill 1,400 children under 5 every day.
They thought that was ‘pretty crap’. So in July 2012, Simon, Jehan and Danny launched Who Gives A Crap, with Simon sitting on a toilet and refusing to move until they had raised enough pre-orders to start production. 50 hours and one cold bottom later, they’d raised over $50,000.
By the use of their quirky humor and strong sense of social and corporate responsiblity, their toilet paper is now gracing bathrooms across the country. Great for the users of their 100% post consumer recycled paper products and even more so, because they donate 50% of their profits to WaterAid to build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
They have now sold enough toilet paper to help fund a year’s access to a toilet for about 120,000 people! So thank you to our fabulous past guests who have helped us help Who Gives a Crap make this huge impact!
Another social enterprise, donating 100% of their profits to the Thankyou Charitable Trust, which then distributes the funds to life-changing food, water and health and sanitation programs around the world. Offering low interest loans and other means of social support in remote communities.
Their philosophy is to exist 100% for ending the effects of global poverty.
And besides, their soap is not tested on animals and smells fabulous! Three ticks from us!
