Corporate Gifts that uplift South Africa, not just your office party...
Uzwelo and Expand a Sign have partnered with everyday local heroes to provide a range of bags that are not only functional and stylish, but change lives. It all started by realising that we can only make a real difference when we focus on what we can do, instead of what we can't....
How We're Changing South Africa
Expand a Sign decided to use their waste fabric off-cuts to create unique, functional and stylish products that would minimise the impact we were having on the environment, and use our creativity to look after our planet...
Each one of our products is hand-made by local women in Kwa-Zulu Natal who have gone through skills development programs that empower them to earn a living, put food on the table, fund education and provide dignity and upliftment for their communities long-term.
The Bateleurs is an NPO organisation of volunteer pilots who fly their aeroplanes behind the scenes, providing an aerial view of the South African environment for various conservation and development needs. Uzwelo is proud to donate a portion of it's proceeds from sales to this amazing organisation and their cause.
We're constantly looking for ways to make a difference. Our latest product innovation is to partner with ECO conscious surfers and provide awesome recycled surf bags that compliment the newest innovations in surfboard manufacturing. Historically, surfboards have been made from materials that are totally non biodegradable like fibreglass and foam. Thankfully, the global surfing fraternity is waking up to this and some surf boards are now being made out of natural fibers and resins. Watch this space!
