hey foundation sponsors, tell us what awesome thing you’re working on right now.

adriana esperalba bobo choses We have launched A Legend, our new spring-summer 2017 collection. It’s related to the world of sports and inspired by athletic legends from around the world and through time. The idea behind the collection is to celebrate those heroes who may not stand out for their perfection, but who overcome their fears and dare to be different. We have also published an illustrated children's book that tells the stories of different sports legends. The book was the starting point for the SS17 clothing collection. The most exciting thing about all this is to see children and adults be moved and inspired when reading the book. That’s when our garments gain a new meaning for them. sophie digby ecostore This month we are so proud to release our extra-special just…

be an unfucker

When did you have the idea for Be An Unfucker? Caroline [Caro] and I regularly had our own side projects going on but always had problems finishing them. So we decided to start a project together so that we’d motivate each other to see it through. We also wanted to use our creative skills for good. We are interested in climate change and thought we’d take something important and communicate it in a way we’d respond to ourselves. The more we got into it, the more we realised there were so many people out there who a traditional ‘greenie’ just wasn’t resonating with. We also realised that the idea of positive peer pressure was a pretty interesting thing. Before Unfuckers, I recycled, but that was about it. As Caro and…

Baggin’ your bananas Fact: 429,000 recyclable plastic supermarket bags are dumped into landfill every hour. Change one thing: Your fruit and veg already has its own natural packaging, so what do you really need those plastic bags for? If you’re grossed out by fruit-on-trolley action, just put everything in one bag and separate them at the till. Free-bag frenzy Fact: Australians throw away about 7,150 recyclable plastic bags a minute. Around the world, we use and throw away 1 trillion every year. And some supermarkets still don’t charge for them. Crazy. Change one thing: Embrace the granny trolley, bring your own bags or put your groceries straight into your bag / backpack / man bag. Buy in season Fact: Eating strawberries in winter or oranges in summer can mean they’ve been flown in from halfway across the…

When her youngest son was diagnosed with ADHD, Henriette Lamm Zeuthen understood that their lives would have to change, but by swapping a career in banking for one making organic lollies, she’s taken that approach a little further than most. “I was looking for different ways to stabilise my son, and organic food and meditation ended up working for us,” explains Zeuthen. “I’ve always preferred to eat organic, so it wasn’t a huge shift. I’d rather an organic apple with a wormhole, because I think the worm is the wise guy who knows what’s best for him.” Zeuthen lives in a town near Copenhagen, Denmark, where organic food isn’t hard to find in local supermarkets. That is, until you hit the lolly aisle. “I started looking in other shoppers’ baskets and noticed…
