Achieving anything you want is awesome. Going on adventures you always wanted to do rocks, full stop. Looking amazing along the way, not a bad idea of course.
But what if we could do some good at the same time? What if we could help others achieve their goals? Help others on their adventures? Their journey? That is where our social responsibility comes in. It's where the second part of our name Chibuntu comes from, you can read about that here. But first:
Let's have some positive impact together!
We donate 10% of the profit of our charity bracelets and nato straps to good causes. Let us share with you some of the charities you and we together support. And it is just the beginning!
During our travels around the world, we were shocked by the dirty beaches and garbage in the ocean.
While surfing & swimming we were surrounded by tens of empty bottles floating around. Plastic straws glued together with chewing gum.
We felt we had to do something, so we did. We donate to The Ocean Cleanup project. Continue reading about it here.
Why trees? To improve the air and increase oxygen? To have a relaxed walk in the forest on Sunday? Yes, and even a lot more than that.
Trees have a major impact in capturing drinking water, in reducing the risk of floods or landslides. Trees and forests support biodiversity and wildlife. Last but not least, it saves lives, helps ending hunger and poverty.
As we love entrepreneurship our heart opened when we saw we could help by donating to Trees for the Future. Read all about it here.
Now, do we stop with helping the ocean, the forest? Of course not. Did you ever see those documentaries on Netflix or National Geographic about the current status of wildlife?
Did you ever go on a safari in Africa? We didn't, we only saw the documentaries and know we love animals. We do have it high on our agenda to visit places like Africa or South America, or any other place where animals are under threat.
One thing is certain, we don't have to wait until we can have an impact locally. Until we can do something in person. We can start now, so can you!
So we are happy to say that when you buy our Khaki products we together donate 10% of the profit to the World Wildlife Fund. Read all about WWF here.
Kids, whether you like them or not, they have the future. Unfortunately not all children in the world have the same opportunities, the same chance of building a great life filled with love, health and happiness.
We wanted to help and take our responsibility very serious here. We therefore donate 10% of our sky blue bracelets to UNICEF.
In all of its work, UNICEF takes a life-cycle based approach, recognizing the particular importance of early childhood development and adolescence. UNICEF works together and has initiated a lot of different projects.

Do we stop here? No we won't!
We believe business success & social impact go hand in hand. We believe the more you grow, the more you are able to help others. A good reason to keep achieving your goals. A good reason to keep growing as a person, but also for example financially.
So in the future you can expect more charities, but also more initiatives like improving our supply chain. Or improving the materials we use to be environmentally friendly. Now we already ship our bracelets using biodegradable packaging, for example. We are also switching to a bank that takes their social responsibilities serious and doesn't invest all of our money into wars and other not so cool stuff.
