Charitable Donations & Giving Back
Essential Care believes strongly in what is fashionably called CSR or ‘corporate social responsibility’. But we believe that is not enough. Businesses have a duty to act responsibly towards people and the environment as well as to give back to society. It goes without saying that as a certified organic company, our ethical commitments include encouraging organic agriculture, creating healthy skincare without toxic chemicals, as well as trading equitably with Fairtrade certified suppliers. We are also keen to support local communities and causes.
Charities that we support include the Pink Ribbon Foundation (during Breast Cancer Awareness month); the Woodland Trust; East Anglian Air Ambulance and St Nicholas’ Hospice. As a small company, there is a limit to what we can do, but if there are ways that Essential Care might help your charity or concern, please get in touch.
In addition, every time you shop with Essential Care you make a small, but important difference, because our payment processing service, CharityClear, donates 100% of its profits to charity.
This means that instead of just growing the profits of banks and corporations, all profit made from your payment transaction goes towards helping those most in need of support. Currently, profits go to Epilepsy Scotland, who created CharityClear and the future plan is to share profits across a ‘basket’ of credible charities.
So, by the simple act of shopping online with us, you have provided funding for a very worthwhile cause at no cost to yourself or us. When you confirm payment for any amount, for any goods bought from us online, we are charged a few pence for the processing of that payment. Clearly, a large number of small charges add up and can then make a real difference. If you would like more information about CharityClear, please visit www.CharityClear.com.
Many thanks for shopping with us. We hope you will tell others and come back soon yourself!
