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,Β 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,Β Old Spitalfields MarketΒ 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.

β€œLife. 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.

There’s nothing more satisfying than making your home that extra bit cosy this season. Our natural beeswax candles do just that and have been a firm favourite since we started stocking these back in November.
β€’
We wanted to share with you one of our customer reviews, that has just made our day.
These vegan and paraban free vanilla pinecone fire lighters are sure to get you in the festive mood this season. Handmade using recycled soy wax and collected pinecones, these make the perfect eco-friendly alternative to regular fire lighters. These also work great as decorative pieces that leave your room smelling delicious.β €
