Charity Donations | Voya

 We believe in giving back to communities that need it

We are determined that our impact on the world comes not just from encouraging people to buy better and wear forever, but also educating our community on sustainable living, responsible tourism, which in turn benefits the destinations and the local people all over the world.

Our design ethos has always been to put longevity first, we create contemporary clothing, without an expiration date. Throughout our design and development process, we keep waste to a minimum. We donate all our un-required garment samples to local homeless charities and unused fabrics to textile recycling mills. We use natural or sustainable fibres in our fabrics, and only use recycled polyester. We have pledged to stop using single use plastics, starting from 2021. We offset all of our companies carbon footprint, read more about this here.

There is still a lot more we can do, and now are working to produce in a more sustainable way which is one of our goals as a business. We do promise to continually work towards a better future.

We believe that the success of the one should feed the commitment of the other, so we have been making direct donations from our own pockets to related charities that we truly care about. You can read below about some of the charities we have been supporting.

We also love being involved in the SAS beach cleans, we deeply admire their plastic free community initiative, and the fact that they involve the local communities in their projects.
