Have an Ethical Christmas - Support a Small Business

Christmas is fast approaching, and it’s the perfect time to highlight Small Business Saturday to help kick start or top up your gift shopping this Saturday 3rd December!

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.


Why is it important?

Because your purchases will have a lasting impact on small businesses like ours and the people we directly support. From the vulnerable women and girls who now have access to their own underwear, to the skilled workers we employ in India's leading ethical and sustainable manufacturer to ensure that nobody is exploited in our supply chain - your decision to buy from Y.O.U underwear is life changing.

Reasons to support a small business

What are we doing on Small Business Saturday?

To mark Small Business Saturday, Y.O.U underwear will be at our first Christmas Fair of the season - the Oxford Etsy Team Christmas Market 2022.

It's back after a 2 year (pandemic) break with a team of 80 local designers and makers at the Examination Schools in Oxford, on Saturday 3rd (and Sunday 4th) December. There will be a huge range of items for sale including art, stationary, homeware, decorations, jewellery, ceramics, paintings, clothing, woodwork and leather goods - we can't wait! If you're local, and free this weekend, please do come and see us with our collection of best selling undies, gifts and eco products. Our friend and local Oxford supplier Neve's Bees (pictured) will also be there.

Or if you're cosying up and shopping online instead, you can browse our Christmas Collection here. Thanks as ever for your support.

 Sarah and the Y.O.U team x
