SUSTAINABILITY

WE CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

We are constantly improving our practices in order to increase our projects’ social benefits while reducing their environmental impact.

One of our aims as an organisation is to meet all three tiers of sustainability: social, financial and environmental. Low levels of funding often make it difficult to reduce the environmental impact created by humanitarian projects, but with creativity and resourcefulness it is not impossible.

 

   WHAT WE DO:

  • Giving choice of clothing to refugees minimises waste – instead of collecting multiple donated coats to try to find one that fits, they choose for themselves one coat which they are happy to wear all winter.
  • We work to reduce use of cardboard boxes
  • We only accept containers based on needs lists
  • We donate unsuitable clothing to local charities and not landfills
