Our Charity Work

DOING OUR BIT

We currently support five different charities – just another way for us to help make sure we look after our environment and community.


THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING NHS

During the unprecedented times of 2020 our amazing NHS have gone above and beyond to support the people of Great Britain. We wanted to do our bit to give back so we ran a competition across our social media platforms for all the bored kids at home to design a rainbow mat! We had lots of gorgeous entries (Bella, aged 11, won) and we're very pleased to say our rainbow mat is raising lots of money for the NHS. We're donating 100% of the profits from the Rainbow mat and runner to NHS Charities Together.


HELP US SAVE THE BUMBLEBEES

We are passionate about the environment and for the past two years have been supporters of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust – a great charity whose mission is to increase the number and distribution of bumblebees. The trust is a science-led organisation. Their conservation work is informed through close evaluation of the latest scientific research and best practice.

BEES NEED OUR HELP – but we need them as much as they need us. Bees are crucial to our way of life – without them farmers wouldn’t be able to pollinate their crops. In a world without bees, our food would cost a lot more to produce and our world would suffer. Help us stop the decline of our wonderful bumblebees – we will 10% of all sales from our BEE 1 and BEE 2 mats and runners to bee charities that work hard in the conservation of our humble bumblebees.

YOU OBVIOUSLY LOVE OUR BEE MATS…
So far we’ve raised over £9,500


GIVE NATURE A HOME IN YOUR HOME!

Everyone knows the RSPB – they restore, create and enhance land to benefit people and wildlife, from reedbeds and heathland to chalk grassland and wetlands. Our two RSPB designs (BIRDS 1 & BIRDS 2) are new but we are sure they will become as popular as the bee designs, we’ll let you know how much we raise over the coming months.

OCEAN CONSERVATION TRUST

The trust deliver innovative ocean habitat restoration projects, to secure a future for the ocean that we all rely on. So to do our bit we’ve designed this super cute TURTLE BATHROOM MAT and like our other charity mats 10% of sales will go to the Ocean Conservation Trust.

BE A CONSCIOUS CONSUMER

For over 10 years we have been using recycled plastic bottles to make the webbing on our gorgeous Hug Rugs, and recycled industrial plastics go into all of our rubber backed mats and runners, so supporting Plastic Oceans UK seemed the perfect choice. Plastic Oceans UK mission is to “stop plastic reaching the ocean within a generation”. They work with businesses who value the planet’s future, whose attitudes are reflected by their employees, supply chain, products and services.

Turning waste plastics into beautiful sustainable products makes sense so we now have the gorgeous HUG RUG SENSE range – the tufts are made of recycled plastic bottles with the same webbing and backing as our recycled cotton tufted Hug Rugs. We also have the HUG RUG WOVEN range made of 100% recycled plastic bottles. We are constantly looking for ways to use as much recycled material in our products as possible.

HARSH FACTS

• Bottles of water take 1000 years to biodegrade, and if incinerated they produce toxic fumes.

75% of plastic bottles are not recycled just thrown away!

• Plastic pieces in the sea now outnumber sealife by 6:1.

• Bottles thrown away each year could circle the earth four times!
