Esperanza Projects

Learn more about our Esperanza Projects.

It is important to us that running a business is not just a tool to make money with no soul. Any business, regardless of size, should find ways to donate to charity. It should run in a way which is beneficial to people and planet. We are working hard to make sure we always have these ideals at the centre of everything we do.

The Esperanza Gift Tag Project

The Esperanza Gift Tag Project was created in December 2020. After making our own upcycled gift tags from old cards, we realised this would be a fantastic fundraising project. Furthermore, it is a great way to reuse cards and give them a second life. We began collecting used Christmas cards from family and friends, and then from our local community. Within a month we had thousands.
We asked those who donated cards to nominate charities who they would like to see benefit from our fundraising. From the suggestions we chose 4 Dorset based charities who we felt passionate about. Those charities are: The Staffie and Stray Rescue, The Dorset Children’s Foundation, Weldmar Hospicecare and Dorset Mind. (Our project is not affiliated with these charities).

As we develop Esperanza, we have big plans for the used greetings cards we have collected. Stay tuned to find out more!

Tree Planting – The Esperanza Project

It is important to us to find ways to make our business more sustainable. One big concern of ours is our carbon footprint. From January 2022 we will plant a tree for every art print or gift bag purchased using more:trees. We hope this is the start of an even greener 2022.

The Esperanza Projects are a fundamental part of our business. We pride ourselves on putting planet friendly alternatives first.
