Elvis & Kresse re-distributes up to 50% of profits to projects and charities related to the unique materials we reclaim. 50% of the profits from our fire hose range are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
Donations have been made to WWF, Help for Heroes, Comic Relief, British Forces Foundation and of course, the Fire Fighters Charity in support of the work that they do.
Through an initiative in which we made shopping bags for Sainsbury's from old coffee sacks, we have also made donations to CafeDirect, the Costa Foundation, David Williamson Rwanda Foundation, Bettys and Taylors and Union Hand Roasted.
Why do we make these donations? At Elvis & Kresse we believe in the notion of good business: our business was established to solve environmental problems, waste problems in particular. We started with fire-hose and now reclaim more than 10 different materials. Beyond this, we also wanted to engage our material partners, our key stakeholders. Why not share, why not see if more good could be done with the surplus of an already good business. Why not?
In this sense we are lucky. Most traditional businesses are only able to measure their success in one way... the bottom line. At Elvis & Kresse we have 2 additional measures of success; how much waste we are able to divert from landfill and how much money we are able to give back to our charities, of which all 3 have equal importance to us.
