A good question! Bristol Badges have been making button badges since 2007. In recent years we scaled back significantly due to other work/life commitments, however we continued producing badges for causes close to our hearts. Our badges have proven to be super-popular, so after a long offline hiatus, we are back again!
The badges that we design and produce are inspired by our own beliefs, so you can be sure that the badges you buy have been made by people that share your ethos. We are not in this business for an easy buck. We do this as we wish to share our heartfelt messages and raise much-needed funds for our favourite grassroots causes.
NEW HAVEN PROJECT
New Haven is a vegan sanctuary based in Somerset. They are a non-profit pre-slaughter rescue, and among their residents are two sheep that we helped to rehome with New Haven in 2018. New Haven also produce vegan candles, balms, soaps and other wonderful items to help provide for their rescue animals. Do check them out. We donate badges to New Haven to sell at vegan fairs.
SOMERSET AGAINST THE BADGER CULL
We are big nature lovers, so were appalled when the government decided to go ahead with the cruel and unscientific badger cull in 2012. We are active members of SABC, so naturally we wish to support them financially with proceeds from our badger-themed badges. 100% of the sale price of these badges will go directly to Somerset Against The Badger Cull.
MENDIP HUNT SABS
Mendip Hunt Sabs are out in the field twice weekly keeping a watchful eye (and camera!) on the activities of the local hunt, Mendip Farmers, during the hunting and cubbing season. They have had a very successful first season, preventing many kills in the Mendip Hills (and beyond!), and are now looking to raise funds to Continue their vital work saving our precious foxes. 100% of the sale price of our Mendip Hunt Watch & Mendip Hunt Sabs badges will go directly to them.
We are delighted to be hosted by eco-friendly GreenGeeks, meaning our website is 300% green.
