The Big Issue, established 25 years ago was a pioneer for social trading and has enabled thousands of people to achieve life-enhancing steps forward in their journeys away from poverty and social exclusion. It has now developed an e-commerce marketplace encouraging “socially-conscious shopping” and part of this online shop features a fab selection of baby/children’s wear.
The “From Babies with Love” range includes super hip baby-grows, t-shirts, blankets and hats and is from 0-24 months.
From Babies with Love is the award-winning baby brand that donates 100% of its profit to orphaned and abandoned children around the world. The profits from the design-led, ethically sourced range of products support the children to grow up in loving family homes dedicated children’s villages. The children have an SOS Mother, brothers and sisters, recreating a family unit and supporting the children to go on to independent adult lives, breaking the cycle of poverty.
Founder and editor in chief of The Big Issue Lord John Bird says ‘It’s a very special shop because what we sell helps. It helps you because it’s something that you want to buy. It helps us because it gives us income for our work. And it helps the people who make the stuff that we sell to you! It’s a virtuous circle. Winners all around. And it’s all social trading”.
