On 10th June 2021, the Global Good Awards released the companies who were shortlisted for their 2021 Global Goods Awards list. We are so excited to announce Supreme Creations/Bags of Ethics was part of the shortlisted organisations in the Covid-19 Crisis Champions category.
In June 2020 during the global pandemic Bags of Ethics took on the initiative to produce face coverings for public use, to decrease the spread of Coronavirus. The campaign was in collaboration with British Fashion Council and 6 British designers: Julien Macdonald, Mulberry, RIXO, RAEBURN, Halpern and Liam Hodges.
After months of hard work and collaboration with material technologists, fabric weavers, scientists, printers, designers, and the thousands of makers across our global supply chain, The Great British Designer Face Coverings campaign was launched. The results have seen the reduction of millions of plastic single-use masks, and over £1m has been raised for charity. The British Fashion Council Fashion Fund supported over 70 British fashion designer with grants from the money raised.
Funds were also donated to NHS Charities Together and the Wings of Hope Children’s Charity. The face coverings were made widely available through retail partnerships with ASOS, Amazon, BP, Boots, John Lewis, Sainsburys (TU and Argos), Waitrose and Zalando. They were accredited by Which? As a Best Buy, and promoted on over 300 media outlets including BBC, ITV, Vogue, WWD, Financial Times, and the Guardian
The Global Good Awards was set up to reward businesses, NGOs, charities and social enterprises for doing good globally whilst encouraging ethical business practices.
