BICBIM: BECAUSE IT'S COOL, BECAUSE IT MATTERS - OUR ETHOS
In today’s world, every purchase we make has an impact on someone else’s life. We can choose for that impact to be good or bad.
BICBIM is providing something that's missing at the moment- a way to easily discover how to buy clothes that were made by people paid living wages, and to eat meat and dairy from animals that had a life worth living.
Things most of us care about, but often lack the information to make choices we can stand by.
With your help, we want to sculpt a better world through the ordinary choices we make everyday.
WHAT WE DO
We make the ethical choice the easy choice by bringing you brands that consider their supply chain without sacrificing style or quality, and still offer good value for money. Food and fashion is only the beginning.
We believe everyone should be given honest information, so we can make informed decisions about what we’re putting in and on our bodies.
So, we aim to make the ethical choice the easy choice by investigating supply chains and only featuring brands with social responsibility at the heart of their businesses.
AS SEEN IN:
We believe eating and buying clothes should be a joyful experience. You shouldn't have to compromise good taste - either in food or fashion - for good ethics. That’s why we only put the best food and the coolest brands on our site.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
To date, BICBIM has been built using our own resources. We've already reached thousands of people, but we now need your help to reach thousands more.
We have barely scratched the surface of what's available. £10,000 will enable us to further our research and we pledge to add 100 new brands to BICBIM within the next 12 months, giving you more choice and making it truly nationwide.
It takes a lot of time to hunt out the best brands as they often don't have huge marketing budgets and so are not as visible. We then need to talk to them about their ethics and research their supply chain, before even considering creating a profile for our site.
This also takes money, and we have poured both into creating the BICBIM so far. But we need your help to reach even more brands.
We'll also improve the site’s functionality. We're aiming to create an online shop making it easier for you to source and purchase ethical products and services at the touch of a button.
Plus, we'll continue to do investigations and to write the stories that big brands don't want you to know.
Every extra penny we receive after that will be used to add more brands, so we can inform you quicker.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE BRANDS WHO ARE SUPPORTING OUR CAMPAIGN:
BUT AS WELL AS THE REWARDS, HERE ARE THREE MORE REASONS TO BACK US...
(Aside from the feel-good factor of knowing you're helping to create a fairer world, for us and future generations!)
- There's so much conflicting information about what you shouldn't buy, shouldn't eat, shouldn't do - we're your trusted resource that focuses on the best choices you can make.
- You’re guaranteed that our fashion collections empower people across the globe - helping to stamp out child labour, emotional and sexual abuse of workers in sweat shops and cotton fields, and paying a fair wage to all. We operate on a buy better and buy less policy - all of this without compromising your style.
- The food you source from BICBIM will be healthier, taste better and all animals have a life worth living, rather than being tightly packed into inhumane factories where they never get to see a blade of grass.
We pledge to constantly refine the criteria for which restaurants and brands are on our site. Whatever we find out, we'll let you know. No secrets - 100% transparency.
THE TEAM BEHIND BICBIM
We couldn't do this without your support - but together we can demand better. That's how we change the world - one purchase at a time.
