Elvis & Kresse just won the 2023 Marie Claire Sustainability Award!
We were the best accessories brand and given the competition and the judging panel this one is a real honour. I think our favourite part of the process was watching the awards (they were virtual to avoid a travel footprint). It was really lovely to learn about all of the brands who participated. They are all solving environmental problems creatively and joyfully.
Everything we do is inspired by the challenges we face, socially and environmentally. We are always trying to squeeze absolutely every ounce of goodness from the decisions we make, the products we design and how we produce, communicate and distribute. There isn't enough time for anything less than our best and it really is lovely to be recognised as making some serious progress.
According to Marie Claire, this is why we won:
As a certified Social Enterprise and B Corp, Elvis & Kresse is dedicated to redefining luxury. It has donated more than £350,000 to charitable partners – including The Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College International – saved 307.6 tonnes of materials that would otherwise have gone to landfill, and established eco-conscious manufacturing sites. Simply put: it's making things better."A great concept and solid initiatives from a small business that was born sustainably. Very credible," says Amy Nelson-Bennett, Managing Director of Positive Luxury, and our Sustainability Awards judge."
