Clothing repair

Our work with charitable funders

Helping people and planet to thrive

As a charity we are thankful to work with a rich array of funders with whom we share a common interest in protecting our natural world while providing benefits to society.

Our work is critical to improving communities around the world by preventing food waste, reducing plastic pollution, mitigating the environmental cost of clothing and ensuring waste is valued and remains in the economy.

Trusts and foundations

We are very grateful to the trusts and foundations that support our work.

In the UK, trusts such as the Tomoro Foundation fund our work to inform people on ways to keep plastic waste out of the environment and to reduce the environmental impact of clothing.

Corporate funding

We are fortunate to receive support from many corporate funders, for example though sponsorship and partnerships.

We were extremely grateful to receive donations for Recycle Week 2020 from many leading businesses, including Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Co-op, Britvic, Highland Spring, Unilever UK and Ireland, Suntory Beverage and Food GB&I and Danone. This generous support helped make Recycle Week 2020 the best yet. By participating, our donors connected with 69% of the UK population who recognise the Recycle Now brand and 64% of consumers who are belief-driven.

WRAP’s work with consumers and major companies often receives high media coverage and presents great opportunities for companies to deliver their CSR goals, take part in widely-recognised brand campaigns and help society and the environment.

Seeking new opportunities

WRAP is continually seeking opportunities to work with trusts and foundations, both in the UK and globally, across all our areas of focus. A current priority is to secure funding for our behaviour change work in the UK, which supports people to adopt sustainable habits for life. 

We are seeking trusts and foundations to join with us and support our work engaging more communities so that we can help them recycle, reduce waste, stay in love with their clothes for longer, save money and help the environment.

Get in touch

Trusts and foundations, companies and other funders that share WRAP’s vision of a work where resources are used sustainably can contact Lewis Jones to find out how we can work together to reduce the negative impact food waste, clothing and plastics have on the environment and society.
