Here at Little Box of Joy we are quite selective about the brands we choose to work with. It goes without saying that we only select beautiful products to feature in your gorgeous gift boxes and we tend to work with independent brands who have a similar ethos to ours and all of the beauty products that are available within our gift boxes are cruelty free, with the majority being vegan and we ensure that our packaging can either be reused or recycled.
One thing we take into consideration when selecting a brand to add to our collection of gifts is if they give anything back, whether this is to charity or local causes and in the form of a donation or something else..
We are so pleased to feature a number of brands who currently do this and always on the lookout for more. You can read a bit about these brands below and what it is exactly that they do.
Kendall and Co - Harriet creates these gorgeous smelling candles, which are made from organic soy wax and hand poured into recycled jars. She also donates £1 from every product sold to crohns and colitis UK.
Love Cocoa - Created by James Cadbury the great-great-great grandson of John Cadbury, who set up Cadbury chocolate nearly 200 years ago. Love Cocoa have partnered up with 'The Rainforest Foundation', to do their bit to help combat problems of deforestation, cocoa farmer poverty, and human rights abuses, which are all rife within the cocoa industry. All their products are free from palm oil, the farming of which has caused 8% of the world’s deforestation. In 2020 Love Cocoa will be planting 500,000 trees, by planting one tree for every product sold.
Skin and Tonic - This London based brand was created by Sarah and Josh and they offer sustainable beauty and skincare using 100% natural and organic ingredients. As a brand they support small farmers and growers in the UK and France, along with Fairtrade women's co-operatives in Ghana & Sri Lanka. As a business they reduce their carbon footprint every year by planting trees in the Suffolk countryside.
Rare Tea Company - Founded in 2004 by Henrietta Lovell with the aim to source and supply the world's best tea, direct from farmers and their tea gardens.
