From food to fashion: 9 products supporting charity

Melanie May | 4 December 2020 | News

Another quickfire round of products that support a charity by raising funds – or in two cases, planting trees – from vitamins to watches.

Fight vitamins

FIGHT supplements & FareShare

A partnership has launched between FareShare, and new supplements brand, FIGHT, which together aim to tackle food hunger and under-nutrition in the UK. The partnership is the first of its kind for FareShare, as FIGHT becomes its first vitamins and supplements partner in over 25 years.  Throughout the duration of the partnership, FIGHT will be supporting FareShare’s work by making a donation to the charity every time a bottle of supplements is bought. FIGHT has made an initial commitment to donate at least 100,000 meals to FareShare in its first year.

CuleM Watches & Rainforest Trust

CuleM Watches, which produces Swiss made, automatic GMT watches, has launched a pledge to set a new sustainable standard for the luxury watch industry. From now on, at least 3% of sales will be donated to conservation and humanitarian causes. Through new partnerships with Rainforest Trust and Ecologi, CuleM has protected 65 acres of tropical rainforest and planted 10,000 trees to create a CuleM Forest. For every watch sold, the team will expand the CuleM Forest by planting 100 more trees. It will also preserve over six additional acres of existing rainforest. The team will also donate a percentage of total sales to ActionAid. Finally, CuleM’s Watches has designed its packaging to be 100% plastic free. It is also working to offset its CO2 footprint by investing in international sustainability projects such as wind energy in India and preserving prime Brazilian rainforest with Ecologi.
