My background is in senior global management roles. A few years a go I gave up work because my daughter was going thorough a gruelling bone marrow transplant. We have been backwards and forward to Great Ormond Street for most of her life, they have been amazing, this is why we donate a part of the profit to GOSH and Teenage Cancer Trust.
I have been fortunate to work in ethical companies who have had Corporate Social Responsibility very high on the corporate agenda. I have lived and travelled globally and witnessed the variety of ways that countries deal with waste. India was very interesting as everything has a value so recycling is a way of life. Closer to home, I was impressed by Germany's approach to plastic recycling.
As a child we didn't waste anything - it was up-cycled, recycled, or reproduced into something else - rotting bananas revitalised into banana cake was a personal favourite.
We make all of our products in our little workshop in the UK, only using 100% natural raw materials and the rest we ensure is ethically sourced and delivered.Urban Green Company is about turning the tide on plastic for a healthier planet, a family run business creating quality eco-products that you'll invest in once and love forever
