There is a saying "Good Things Come in Threes" and that certainly rings true for Y.O.U Underwear! This week (18th October 2022) sitting proudly on top of our shop counter are these three wonderful awards:
A Sustainable Scale-Up Award, from Enterprise Nation's Sustainable Small Business Awards 2022. This recognises our progress in growing and developing our business with sustainability at our core.
A Gold Award from the Global Good Awards for being the Best Start-up Enterprise of the Year 2022 for our positive social or environmental impact.
A Business Boost grant, worth £25,000 from Simply Business. This grant will make a huge impact on our small business and our team is already busy planning how we'll use the funds to help start a fibre-to-fibre recycling programme that looks to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
What a trio! We are over the moon to be recognised and of course none of these awards would be possible without the support of our Positive Pants Club! When our customers purchase with us, we operate a buy-one-give-two promise, meaning we donate two pairs for every pair you purchase. So far, we’ve donated over 23,000 pairs of underwear to vulnerable people in Africa and the UK thanks to our partnership with the charity Smalls for All. Truly changing the world with Your Own Underwear! Huge congrats to our Y.O.U team and well done to all the other inspiring companies that were nominated.
