The Soul Good Stuff Way
“Small ripples of change can create giant waves when we all try”
Our intentions at Soul Good Stuff have always been the same - our business aims to support three things;
We believe that by being a socially responsible business who puts these priorities at the heart of what we do, we will in turn realise our ambition of reducing our impact on the planet with kindness and compassion.
Children are the future. We are super excited to be starting our work with school age children through the 'Soul Good Kids Club' Scheme and we are currently developing a series of fun activities which educate and highlight key messages about climate change through hands-on play, experience and inspiration.
Our time and resources to the schools we are working with is free of charge and we will be sharing the resources on to our website to offer them to anyone who would benefit from them.
Our fairly traded and ethically bought product range is being developed to promote fair working practices around the world. Our ambition is to set up solid supplier relationships with ethical people who care and provide a platform for products which promote beneficial partnerships from vulnerable groups and communities. You can read more about our socially responsible carbon offset scheme in the 'Planet' section.
We are also proud to support independent businesses and continually seek out new working relationships with those who take pride in creating great, planet friendly products with innovation, our new 'market place' helps us to realise this ambition.
The 'People' charity partner of the year is The Alzheimer's Society - currently the only charity in the UK which actively funds research into possible cures for Dementia. Dementia is the UK's biggest killer and as an illness that our family has suffered at the hands of, we are very proud to support such a great cause.
Soul Good Stuff will always be a business who will never sell products which have been tested on animals. It is our passion to promote cruelty free ways of living and reduce the suffering of animals. As such, Rachael the founder lives and promotes a planet based lifestyle because of a compassion for animals, and impact that farming and agriculture has on our planet <3
We also feel passionately about protecting our wild environment and seek to promote, raise awareness and support initiatives which protect, provide and educate for the benefit of wildlife.
Our charity partner of the year is 'The Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary' who rescue and give homes to vulnerable animals of all types in a selfless, responsible and caring way. Their work and ethics are amazing, you can read more about them here.
Impact on the planet is at the forefront of what we do - we know that we only get one chance at this and the time is now.. We seek to reduce single use plastic through our products, providing and promoting sustainable, renewable alternatives for individuals and families across the world.
We are active in our community to raise awareness of climate change issues, we buy premium wrap-style boxes and recycled postage envelopes which are fully and further recyclable, reduce the amount of space needed to post and we use recycled materials where ever we can.
We invest in carbon footprint schemes which seek to offset the emissions used by our business, it is our intention that we will be a carbon neutral company during 2020. Not only do the schemes we invest in seek to offset carbon, they are also set up to drive social change. Helping people to help our planet – read more about the schemes here.
It is our aim to become a carbon positive business by 2020.
