Our main objectives when we started Otter & Goat in 2014 was firstly, to create a clothing brand that used organic & ethical materials to combat the rise of fast fashion which is so detrimental to the environment.
Secondly, we want to help. Help people, help the environment, help the oceans...just help in any way we can. So through clothing sales, we raise money and donate the profits to causes that our close to our hearts...
The Trussell Trust
In the UK alone, over 14 million people are living in poverty (including 4.5 million children) which is just mind-blowing in this day & age. The Trussell Trust are a fantastic organisation that support a network of food banks throughout the UK. Their mission: To end hunger & poverty in the UK so there is no need for food banks anymore!
The Rainforest Trust are a vitally important charity in the conservation & protection of our planets tropical forests. Their unique, cost-effective conservation model means they can ensure sustainable results necessary for the long-term protection of tropical ecosystems and the wildlife they hold.
The Borneo T-Shirt features a colourful Bornean rainforest scene on the back with four of the most endangered species from this region, the Orangutan, Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Clouded Leopard, Rhinoceros.
£5 will be donated to the Rainforest Trust for every Borneo T-Shirt that finds a new home.
This marine conservation movement is at the forefront of tackling ocean pollution. More than 250 million tons of plastic are estimated to make its way into our ocean by 2025. Everyday trash is entering the sea at an alarming rate and Project AWARE are making huge progress in reviving our oceans.
We designed a special edition Turtle T-Shirt for this collaboration, which features a turtles shell made up of all different plastic items, unfortunately found in abundance in our oceans.
Every t-shirt sold we will donate £5 to Project AWARE - Shop the Turtle T-Shirts
World Land Trust
Since 1989, the World Land Trust has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife.
To date, WLT has helped secure more than 600,000 acres of threatened habitat in 20 countries.
We collaborated with them on their 'Plant A Tree' programme, where every Toucan T-shirt sold means a £5 donation is made. This £5 is used to plant 1 tree, to help regenerate rainforests that have been shrinking due to deforestation over the last 3 decades. #teeforatree
Made With Hope
Since the very beginning we have supported Made With Hope; a Charity run by our close friend Elenor Teeling. Made With Hope builds orphanages & schools for underprivileged children in Tanzania. This Charity has had a huge impact on many children's lives and is giving them the future they rightly deserve.
£1 of every order is donated to Made With Hope.
