New stretch target

Once again, a HUGE thank you to everyone for all your support. 

All your generous donations will be going towards launching our online shop, buying our stock and ultimately providing employment opportunities for people that really need them.

As we have reached our initial target of £5000 with time to spare, we are extremely happy to be in a position to set a stretch target. 

Any extra money raised over the coming days will allow us to stock even more amazing social enterprises and charities, build a wider range of products and put us way ahead of where we expected to be at this time.

All of our amazing rewards are still on offer until our crowdfunder campaign officially ends on Saturday September 29th…so please, continue to share and spread the word about Edge and Company!



What is it?

Edge and Company is an ethical lifestyle shop and cultural magazine stocking and supporting social enterprises and charities in the UK and Worldwide. 

Our handcrafted homeware products, are made by people living with disabilities, mental health conditions and addiction, who find it very challenging to access and maintain employment. 

At Edge and Company we have an ethical buying policy, which means you can filter our product range by our five categories – Organic, Upcycled, Eco-friendly, Educational and Made in the UK. 

Our Mission

To create a positive mass market place of social good, selling ethical homewares, with the transparency of who has made it, that ultimately provide an alternative to mass produced high street products that currently flood the market today. 

At Edge and Company every product sold will help to support organisations that are striving to break perceptions and social stigma, by building acceptance and employment opportunities for people living with disabilities. 

This is what we call 'Radical Giving'.


"A ‘good’ company for me is one that is trying to effect positive change in society; one that is looking, for example, to help people who really need it or one that makes a real effort to lessen its impact on the environment."

Who we are and why we do what we do? 

Together we have had over fifteen years experience in retail, working in store and in head office. Over this time we have become disillusioned with the high street and  our current throw away culture.

Our solution to this is to create an alternative shopping experience, with products that you won't throw away, that are unique, environmentally friendly and made by a positive organisation that gives back.

We believe this should be the future of retail as a whole. 

We want to use our previous experiences and retail knowledge to showcase these great organisation's through our website, social media platforms and modern aesthetics to bring this idea to a mass audience.  

Through our magazine 'Uprising' we are working hard towards raising awareness for people that struggle to have a voice in this costly marketing driven world.

We believe in helping each other and in doing so we can achieve even better, healthier communities that thrive. 


 


Why do we need your help?

We have been busy working along side all our makers, creating our very own bespoke collection. Our website is now fully built and ready to go.

All your donations will help to buy stock and eco-friendly packaging materials, as well as going towards our well thought out press and marketing campaign.  

We have big ambitions for Edge and Company, but require this final push to get things moving. 

We would love you to help us raise £5000 to contribute to these costs along with being with us at the start of something incredible. 


We have some amazing rewards on offer, but if you are unable to donate, we would love your support through sharing our campaign on social media
