IMPACT UPDATE

We are a young start-up with a big ambition. Changing behaviours and how things are done and made take time but we are on the right path!

 

We collect data and will measure and report our impact as our journey continues.

 

We are focusing on 3 main outcomes for now:

- How many plastic bottles we have rescued from landfill and up-cycled: 7,137 bottles so far!

- How many meters of plastic film from dry cleaners have we eliminated. This data will be collected as soon as our mobile app will launch

- How many people have we empowered and helped back into employment. We will measure this impact with the help of the social partners we are working with.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We are so proud to have partnered with FabricWorks to manufacture our first collection.

FabricWorks is a social enterprise based in East London that provides high quality garment production whilst creating training opportunities and routes to employment.

OUR SOCIAL PARTNERSHIPS

SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

If you are a social enterprise running a sewing programme and would like to discuss partnering with us, please contact us on hello@urbagofficial.com.

 

We aim to develop partnerships in every region in the UK, to make sure we minimise transportation and support local communities.

Our long time goal is to have a network of partners in every country so please get in touch!

CHARITIES AND CIC

 

We are always on the lookout for new partnerships with charities and Community Interest Companies who share our environmental and social goals. 

We would love to hear from you either to discuss a partnership to join our sewing programme;

 

or if you need support for a environmental programme which aligns with our objectives.

  Please reach out to us on

hello@urbagofficial.com

MUMS' NETWORKS

We are developing a network of mums who have great sewing skills and who need to reconnect with the job market while keeping full flexibility and independence.   

We are currently working with mums in London so if you want to ​discuss this opportunity further, please contact us on

hello@urbagofficial.com.

If you are based outside London, feel free to contact us too as we will be running similar programmes in other regions soon.
