BETTER BUSINESS ACT
We are proud members of the Better Business Act, a coalition organisation is to see four principles reflected in an amended Section 172 of the Companies Act.
It can no longer be a choice to align the long-term interests of people, planet and profit. The Better Business Act will transform the way we do business, so that every single company in the UK takes ownership of its social and environmental impact.
SURFERS AGAINST SEWAGESmall Stuff is a Surfers Against Sewage Plastic-Free Champion, in acknowledgment of our efforts to reduce waste and single-use plastic within the business.
Small Stuff is proud to be joining Business Declares and the fast-growing network of businesses that acknowledge the Climate and Ecological Emergency. Our business aim is to be net zero by 2025 by reducing our emissions and impact on biodiversity. Concern for both people and the planet are not new to us here at Small Stuff and we look forward to continuing to share our journey by ensuring our voice is part of the collective, collaborative, resounding call for change.
Along this journey we will certainly not be perfect, neither will we judge others, instead we are part of a coalition of the willing, looking to collaborate and accelerate action while continuing to highlight the challenges and barriers which will enable us all to move forward with positive actions for positive change.
Small Stuff not only collaborates with Ecologi for every purchase made through the store, but also pays monthly towards their Gold Standard offsetting projects to support their mission to Net Zero.
