Our Charity Work
Nature gives us the inspiration and ingredients for our plant-based products and we see it as our duty to safeguard the environment for future generations. We do this by only ever using sustainably sourced ingredients and by giving back to nature through our charitable partners.
Protecting people is also second nature to us and in addition to supporting charities that conserve the natural world, we support a select number of small health charities that do some invaluable work protecting people at a time when they need utmost comfort and care.
10% of our net profit goes to charity and here you can find out a little more about who your shopping has helped to support.
OUR ECO-CONSERVATION CHARITY PARTNERS :
The World Land Trust is a non-profit organisation that’s committed to protecting our natural world. Shop during one of our monthly Sustainable Saturday events and we’ll donate a tree in your name. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more.
Teens are driving the campaign for eco-conservation and when you shop selected Oy! products you are helping us to support the education programme spearheaded by The Born Free Foundation, an animal conservation charity devoted to rescuing captive animals and keeping wildlife in the wild.
Shopping selected items from our reef-safe sun care range supports our ocean conservation charity partner, the Marine Conservation Society, who are dedicated to keeping seas, shorelines and marine life safe from harm. So far we’ve raised £90,000 from sun cream sales alone!
OUR HEALTH & WELLBEING CHARITY PARTNERS:
The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK improves quality of life for people living with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorder (HSD) – a group of genetic connective tissue disorders that affect the whole body, with often disabling symptoms.

Shopping our Silent Night gift set supports our long-standing children’s charity partner, the Lullaby Trust, a neonatal charity that helps prevent premature infant death from SIDS.
Around half of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetime and Penny Brohn provides anyone living with cancer with the support that they need. We give 10% of our profits to this life-affirming charity and you can find out more about them here www.pennybrohn.org.uk
By providing products from our pure, nurturing Organic Babies and Organic Children collections we hope to help ensure that all children have access to some of the essential early years items that they need to thrive.
