Our Charity Work
We currently support six different charities – just another way for us to help make sure we look after our environment and community.
HERE FOR EVERY DOG AND CAT
As you may have figured out, we love pets here at Hug At Home and so wanted to support a charity that does brilliant work to rescue and care for animals most in need. 10% of all the sales (excluding VAT, p&p) from our 'Meet You' design will go to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, so by buying this super cute Hug Rug design, you will also be helping to raise money for a great cause!
Battersea will always be here for every dog and cat, and has been since 1860. Battersea takes dogs and cats in, gives them expert care they need and finds them new homes that are just right for them. Your purchase will help Battersea continue its important work. Thank you. Produced under license from Battersea Dogs Home Limited to go towards supporting the work of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home (registered charity no 206394). For all licensed products sold by Phoenox Textiles (Hug At Home) across their Battersea range, Phoenox Textiles will donate a minimum of £2,500 plus VAT in royalties to Battersea Dogs Home Limited, which gives its profits to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Introducing our new charity partners for 2023, Rainbow Trust! They do absolutely brilliant work providing emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness. Our new designs are so bright and fun but not only that, we're also donating 10% of the sales (excluding VAT, p&p) from our ‘Bright Spot 1’ and ‘Rainbow 2’ to the Rainbow Trust.
Last year Rainbow Trust was able to support an amazing 1,126 families. To find out more about them, head over to their website https://www.rainbowtrust.org.uk
HELP US SAVE THE BUMBLEBEES
We are passionate about the environment and for nearly five 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 and 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 donate 10% of all sales (excluding VAT, p&p) from our BEE 1, BEE 2 and our new BEE 3 mats and runners to bee charities that work hard in the conservation of our humble bumblebees.
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 four RSPB designs feature a range of birds, from Sparrows on our ‘Love Birds 1’ mat to Swallows on our Birds 1 design. Last year, we raised an amazing £6,537.21 for RSPB.
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 Ocean bathroom mat and like our other charity mats, 10% of sales (excluding VAT, p&p) will go to the Ocean Conservation Trust.
Last year we raised a brilliant £2,572.60 for the Ocean Conservation Trust.
THE ROYAL HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
The Royal Horticultural Society is the UK’s leading gardening charity, aiming to enrich everyone’s life through plants. As we know so many of our Hug at Home customers have green fingers, so this partnership is a perfect fit! Our lovely designs for the RHS have been inspired by the true beauty of nature, we love them and we’re sure you will too.

Last year we raised a fantastic £7,958.27 for RHS.
SUNSHINE SUNFLOWER FOUNDATION
Our wonderful new charity Sunshine Sunflower Foundation have only recently formed last year, with their main aim being to help young people from ages 16 to 24 with difficult upbringings to grow and develop various skills through ‘horticultural therapy’. While we love to support all charities, by helping smaller charities like the Sunshine Sunflower foundation, we can have a bigger impact on our local community, so we’ve donated to help them continue to support our local community.
Read our blog, where we spoke to some of the students and heard from the founders of the charity. Also watch this space for a brand new design coming soon, specifically aiming to support this lovely charity!
BE A CONSCIOUS CUSTOMER
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. 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.
