SOKOH Collective X Giving Back
One of the first things that we decided when setting up SOKOH Collective was the we wanted to find ways to give back; to our local community, to our environment, to our collective.
We have chosen to partner with One Tree Planted, which means with every purchase we plant a tree. This happens automatically at check-out by deducting £1 GBP from the funds we receive, and it going directly to One Tree Planted. Since we've just started with SOKOH Collective we're keeping a close eye on how this works exactly, and we're keen to keep you updated on how this goes.
We've also chosen to partner with BioRock Indonesia, an NGO engaging local communities in coral reef conservation and restoration. We donate 20% of sales from our "Essentials Edit" which is made from the ribbed fabric that we use in the cuffs or our sweatshirts.
BioRock’s mission is to “empower local communities, and to protect and restore coral reefs as well as shorelines.” So far, with the help of previous partners and sponsors, they have trained more than 1000 people in 13 villages in restoring 200km2 of destroyed coral reefs and 5km of eroded shorelines. We are so excited to be able to support BioRock Indonesia.
We're still figuring out more ways we can give back, and we're excited to see how our first partnerships develop. If you have any suggestions, comments, or simply want to know more about any of the above, please feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be more than happy to chat.
