Giving Back on Black Friday
On Black Friday instead of unnecessary discounts we donate 100% of profits from the day to charity. Being an ethical business we know it is important to give back. Black Friday, the epitome of unethical consumerism, was an obvious choice. Black Friday encourages more businesses to squeeze factories even further, cutting corners and exploiting workers for our “bargains”, after all, someone somewhere always pays the price.
We decided to make a stand, in an attempt to offset some of the negative aspects of the day we decided to go against the grain and turn this into a day of giving instead of a day of exploitation.
From 2015-2019 we supported the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity brightening the lives of seriously ill children. Helping over 500,000 children every year who are hospitalised, Starlight provides fun entertainment, laughter and distraction to children in every children's hospital ward and hospice.In 2020 after 8 months of Covid lockdown, and people finding themselves in dire straights and in need of food banks, we have chosen to support the trussell trust. They support a nationwide network of food banks providing emergency food and support to people locked in poverty What they said about us:

@bylawlondon: A refreshing alternative #blackfriday, how you choose + where you choose to spend your money is your vote on how you want your society to be
