Wear It Pink

Posted by Abigail Travers on 22nd October 2014 with 0 comments

bcc-logoThe pink ribbon is the international symbol for breast cancer awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness Month October were both introduced to the UK almost 20 years ago. Breast Cancer awareness month exists to help people be better aware of the common symptoms and better equipped to seek guidance as early as possible which increases their chance of survival. Awareness is growing every year but there is still need to reach out to more people. The pink ‘jigsaw piece’ logo symbolises the missing pieces of the puzzle that are the cure for breast cancer.





IMG_9228This Friday, the 24th of October is ‘Wear it Pink’ day, when we are encouraged to wear the official colour adopted by the Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness. Here in the office we’ll be joining in, donating at least £1 each to the campaign and we invite you to do the same. Take the day to do some fundraising in your workplace, encourage colleagues to wear it pink and raise awareness of the disease which is the most common form of Cancer in the UK.




We now also stock a range of kitchenware from the Breast Cancer Campaign, with 10% of profits from the sale of these going to the organisation to help with research into the disease, and hopefully to help find a cure.




So take a look at our Breast Cancer Campaign range, and if you want to wear it pink on Friday we have a few products that will help you!

The Great British Fairness Debate

Posted by Abigail Travers on 3rd October 2014 with 2 comments

great-british-fairness-debate-logoWe know that our customers – you – make a conscious effort to buy more ethical products, why else would you be here. We love that you do your bit to be more eco-friendly and by more Fairtrade products to support farmers and workers in developing countries. But as a nation are we really that fair? The Fairtrade Foundation has started the ‘Great British Fairness Debate’ and is challenging us all to take the test, asking if we are really as fair as we think.





Here in the office we’ve all taken the test, with answers ranging from as low as 65% to as high as 93% (a pretty impressive score from our Designer Leanne!) but apparently none of us are 100% fair! Well, we can’t all be perfect can we? It’s a really good test to take to measure your fairness level, and see how much you really care about other people, challenge your friends too!

Of course it’s not all complete fun and games, it’s about raising awareness of how Fairtrade products help people in developing countries, for example when you buy Fairtrade coffee the 660,00 small-scale farmers who grew the coffee beans are getting a fair price for their produce. Now Fairtrade are challenging you to make a pledge to give support to all Fairtrade products – and you can even win a prize! You can find our more about The Fairness Story here.


Have you browsed our range of Fairtrade products? Which ones are your favourite to buy?
