Sock it to homelessness with Jollie Socks… Jollie Socks are the perfect Christmas present for your employees and clients this year (also a fantastic stocking filler). It turns out that socks are the most needed but under-donated item of clothing that shelters receive. So Jollie Socks went on a mission to change this: for every pair of socks bought, a pair is donated to a homeless shelter. You can even donate your old socks that you no longer use, and if they are in a good condition, they will be donated to a shelter; if they have seen better days they will be recycled and repurposed into valuable industrial textiles!

This thoughtful gift not only promotes the growth of beautiful wildflowers across the UK, but also provides sanctuary and nectar for bees and other insects using eco-friendly, plastic free products that are locally sourced in the UK – you can’t get much better.
