Up To Do Good & Our brand update
Unfortunately our shop at Schiphol will be closed for a while, but online we are of course still very much alive. We even have a SALE, in which you can buy our beautiful products at an even better price. We will make sure that all your orders will arrive with you quickly and nicely wrapped. In this way, we continue to support our charities.
And of course we only sell fair trade products by brands that really try to make a difference.
DEDICATED for example was one of the first sustainable brands in the fashion industry. They have been toxic free for 15 years and have only worked with organic cotton since 2006. DEDICATED aims to show that it is possible to make great sustainable streetwear. That’s the reason they were very selective in their suppliers from the very start. Chiyi Sports for example is a Chinese supplier that is GRS certified and specializes in sportswear. They produce all DEDICATED’s swim and sportswear from recycled plastic bottles. DEDICATED is well on its way to make a difference.
Join them and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL PLANET.
New at Up To Do Good is the Dutch brand O MY BAG. This brand was founded by Paulien Wesselink in 2010. She wished to connect local Indian entrepreneurs to a worldwide distribution network to help them profit from the proceeds of their work as much as possible. Fair wages in other words.
All the bags are made from a unique kind of eco-leather, an O My Bag is a piece that you can flaunt without guilt. This is due to a cleaner and safer tanning process, a reduced carbon footprint, and leather that is made with respect for the environment.
O MY BAG has very ambitious goals and that’s why they started to put these in writing. In their first report they summarize both the company goals and how they are going to achieve them. On the social side for example, they want to encourage employment for women and increase the percentage of female employees at their partner factories. They also want to provide regular skills and education training to the factory workers. Other examples are their goal to become carbon neutral by 2025 and achieve complete supply chain traceability. In this way they will certainly be an example for others.
Supercool how a Dutch brand has managed to achieve so much in so little time! Of course you can find the entire collection at our online shop.
If you are a regular visitor of our site, you will definitely have noticed that we have launched beautiful facemasks designed by Carole Baijings. What you might have missed, is that we launched a very nice mask spray at the same time: My Mist.
In collaboration with Carole and an aroma jockey, we developed a purely natural product in two fantastic scents. If you use the spray on your facemask or other textiles (shawls, clothes or cushions for example), you will inhale a nice scent for days. If you don’t smell the scent any longer, just spray again. A great product to use yourself, but also a unique gift. If there is no need for a facemask anymore (hopefully within a few months), you can very well use My Mist on other textiles.
Naturally My Mist is completely sustainably made with natural ingredients only. The spray comes in a recycled bottle and is available in two scents: Gentle Bloom and Sweet Citrus. And we are Up To Do Good, so of course you support a good cause with your purchase.
