Edge & Co - Our Mission
Edge & Co - Our Mission

Our Mission

Founded by Milly and Steve. Edge and Company is a well-being and lifestyle store stocking zero waste and ethical products sourced from charities and social enterprises in the UK and Worldwide.

Most of our products have been handcrafted by people living with disabilities, mental health conditions, homelessness and addiction, who find it very challenging to access and maintain employment.

Alongside this we stock products that have a positive impact for people, our communities and the environment.

BUYING POLICY

At Edge and Company we have an ethical buying policy, which means you can filter our product range by our five key values – Organic, Upcycled, Eco-friendly, Educational and Made in the UK.

UPCYCLING

We are all about upcycling and mixing the old with the new. Along with our handcrafted product range we have scoured the flea markets of Europe and hunted through local antique fairs to bring you a collection of very special, rare and beautiful one off pieces.

Our mission behind Edge and Company - zero waste and ethical lifestyle products

UPRISING

We have an online lifestyle magazine Uprising, where we interview on a bi-monthly basis, radical and leading companies, on their positive impact and innovative ways on how they do business for the greater good, not just for profit.

ECO PACKAGING

At Edge and Company we believe in better, so all of our orders are gift wrapped and dispatched using only eco-friendly packaging materials.

OLD SPITALFIELDS MARKET STALL

Originating in 1638, Old Spitalfields Market is the original east London market and we are thrilled that you can now find us on our very own stall every weekend. Come and meet us in person and try out our products.

@edgeandcompany
All wrapped up and ready to go! Come and find us at @oldspitalfieldsmarket this weekend. We’ve got loads of exciting new products that have just landed! ☀️❄️

Nothing quite beats a good book for those cozy nights in this month. We came across @nataliefee_ and her amazing new book “How to Save the World for Free” @zerowastegoods Christmas market last year, not only can I not put this down but I’m also learning so much!
•
“There is no greater aspiration than saving the world. Natalie Fee's upbeat and engaging book is a life-altering guide to making those changes that will contribute to helping our planet. Covering all key areas of our lives, from food and leisure to travel and sex, Natalie will galvanise you to think and live differently. You will feel better, live better and ultimately breathe better in the knowledge that every small change contributes towards saving our world.“

“Life. It’s a simple thing. Something to embrace, enjoy, savour, discover. Something to throw yourself into without hesitation or delay. But every now and then, we seem to loose sight of this. We get so swept up in things, so caught up in the minute of everyday life, that we forget the basics. We forget what made us love life in the first place. This book is here to jog your memory. It’s your trusty sidekick, your loyal companion. It’s the very stuff of life packed into 30 bite-sized lessons. So here you have it, your life in your hands.” No need to die by @steveedge

We have just received these new nordic design soup bowls by our very talented friends @Parkwoodpottery – a team of skilled potters living with learning disabilities. Our soup bowls have been carefully handcrafted from stoneware and individually hand painted with an electric blue interior. We love how tactile these are and how each piece is truly unique. Not only do these look great on any table top they also add that cosy touch to this season. Wishing you all a very happy Friday.
