Our Charity Work
Green People was founded on a strong set of beliefs and values to give something back and to help others. Naturally we do this by using fairly traded ingredients with the support this provides to the individuals and companies we work with. Also our commitment is to offer certified organic products that are sustainable and kind to the skin and the environment.
Always looking to do more each year, 10% of our net profit* is donated to charitable causes. Since 1997 we have been proud to work with some incredible charities.
We have supported several other charities, raising much needed funds for many deserving causes. Without your help, this would not be possible. Thank you. Green People were honoured to be a Grand Finalist as an outstanding SME support 2015 in the Chestnut Tree House Business Awards 2015.
Chestnut Tree House
“On behalf of everyone at Chestnut Tree House, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Green People for their incredible support over the years. As well as donating hundreds of prizes for our annual Snowman Spectacular Ball and products for sale in our charity shops, they have raised £50,000 – the equivalent of caring for one of our families for a whole year. We are delighted to have their support in this our tenth birthday year – without the help of companies like Green People and all their staff, we would not be able to continue providing our vital care to life-limited children and their families across Sussex”
- Hugh Lowson Chief Executive
Marine Conservation Society
“We are delighted to be working with a company that is actively ensuring their products don’t put the marine environment at risk. The partnership has boosted MCS funds by over £30,000, great news for MCS but even better news for corals and wild fish that will have fewer chemicals to contend with if we can encourage people to choose these natural sunscreens”
- Katharine Sharp, Corporate Fundraiser
“We cannot thank Green People enough for their fantastic and dedicated support of Penny Brohn Cancer Care. It has been a pleasure working with all of the team. An amazing £84,000 has been so generously donated over the years and has gone towards helping people to live well with cancer”

The Lullaby Trust
Green People is proud to support The Lullaby Trust, the leading UK charity for prevention of sudden infant death, by donating 50p from the sale of each Organic Babies Silent Night gift. The Lullaby Trust funds medical research into the causes and prevention of sudden infant death, provides support to bereaved families, and raises awareness of safer sleep for babies among new parents and professionals.
“We are delighted to be working with Green People, one of the UK’s most loved natural and organic skin care brand. We are pleased to see their ongoing commitment to be responsible corporate citizens by supporting The Lullaby Trust through sales of their Silent Night Baby Collection”
