PEOPLE & EARTH FRIENDLY PRODUCTS

Giving generously

Arta ahura are working with Aid Box Community (ABC), a registered charity in Bristol, serving refugees in difficult

financial circumstances via the ABC Free Shop.

 

We donate a third of the value of every towel you buy directly from us, giving made-to-last towels

to people starting again with extremely limited resources.

 

The shop is currently relocating and due to open around the end of July 2019.

 

 

You can see a list of donations made here.

 

 

 

 

The idea to donate was inspired by an experience in a huge aircraft hanger in North Devon.

The hanger was filled with enormous piles of clothing given locally to send to refugees from the war in Syria

and I was there along with many other people to help with the task of sorting.the huge mix -- from brand new

technical all-weather outdoor gear to partywear and everything inbetween.

 

Volunteer sorters were told: "Only accept the items you would be happy to give a friend, the rest goes for recycling". From that moment on, I thought about every single item I sorted, and about sending it on with the sense of care I would send a gift. This made me feel more hopeful and connected to the people receiving them.

 

I wanted to bring this sense of giving into my business. Finding ABC was a lightbulb moment, a way to make giving possible and share the benefits of arta ahura towels more widely.
