Brand: Clean & Proud

C&P stands for 'Clean and Proud' and believes in a holistic approach to pollution prevention. They make beautiful eco- accessories with artisans in Malawi.

Fair trade: C&P collaborates with talented makers in Malawi. The employees receive at least a living wage or more. Lunch is organized every day and there is daycare on-site for the children who are not yet attending school. In addition, employees can make use of a pension plan and life insurance from Clean & Proud. Each workplace is furnished and lighted according to the wishes of the employee. The location is safe, has clean sanitary facilities and access to clean drinking water.

Environmentally friendly: C&P mainly works with recycled plastic. C&P collects the plastic for free from the houses in Mzuzu, Malawi. They then recycle it themselves at their workshop, which runs 100% on renewable energy sources. Because Malawi does not have a good infrastructure to collect plastic waste from homes, most residents burn it in their garden. To prevent this, C&P collects the material. In addition to this plastic, the brand works with cotton from Nigeria in African printing and upcycled materials that they buy locally in Mzuzu

Good cause: C&P is a non-profit organization that is fully committed to its employees. They also support partners Malawi Wawi and Root To Fruit, with which they plant a tree in Malawi with every order. In this way, they compensate for the CO2 footprint of the delivery.
