At Bramley we are passionate about supporting our local community and are proud to have worked with some amazing charities this year.
This Christmas we want to highlight some of the work we have done and let you know how you can help support them.
As you know, here at Bramley, nature is always at the forefront of our minds, given that the range was first inspired by the British countryside surrounding us. With global warming, deforestation, and the sheer scale of plastic pollution, now more than ever, we all need to work together to protect our beautiful planet.
We’ve worked with Plantlife, a British charity working nationally and internationally to save threatened flowers, plants and fungi, for a number of years and we've raised over £2500 to help them to continue in their important work, protecting plants for our future.
How can you help?
When you purchase our Room Spray or 250ml Body Lotion £1 is donated to Plantlife, preventing the loss of priceless natural heritage worldwide.
We are very excited to announce our new partnership with City to Sea, an environmental organisation on a mission to stop plastic pollution.
Right from the beginning, we set out to change the crazy overuse of plastics. We recently introduced 250ml glass bottles to our range as well as bulk sizes of 1l and 5l so that bottles can be refilled.
How can you help?
We have been really concerned by the sheer scale of pollution caused by disposable face masks, so we are donating £1 to City to Sea with every one of our Molly Mahon X Bramley Cotton Face Masks sold.
We will be doing even more exciting plastic-free initiatives with City to Sea in the new year, so keep your eyes peeled for more exciting ways to take action and prevent plastic pollution.
As part of her commitment to supporting the early development years of children and vulnerable families, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge united three amazing charities with some of the UK's leading independent brands, including Bramley & Little B, to help shine a light on the plight of these families during the Coronavirus pandemic. When Kensington Palace contacted us about the initiative, we knew that we had to help out and donate.
A 2018 survey estimated that 1 in 100 families in England with children under 5 had visited a baby bank, and statistics from a new study conducted by the charity, Little Village shows that baby banks across the UK have found a substantial increase in the use of their services during the coronavirus pandemic.
We have been working with the Baby Basics charity to provide much-needed bath & body products such as shampoo and body wash.
On top of our regular ongoing donations, we wanted to spread the word even further. So we designed the ‘Soap is hope’ tote bag. Each bag sold represented one more soap that we donated to a baby bank.
With your help and support we sold an amazing 2500 bags and donated an additional 2500 soap bars to baby banks across the UK, helping to prevent families from going without the basic essentials they need for the early years of their children’s lives.
