We wanted to start a business that could be truly sustainable, providing a solution for the climate and social crisis.
Narrowing the gap
Unemployment has been steadily rising, increasing the gap between the wealthy and those who are living on the brink of poverty. This has been expedited by the pandemic.
Our home manufacturing network can readily help people to change their situation. No prior experience or skills are necessary to join our network.
We designed our home manufacturing network to remove the barriers for people to earn a living. All of our eco cleaning products are handmade at kitchen tables throughout the UK. Our home manufacturing network do not need to leave their homes to work. We bring the raw ingredients and training needed to make our products, to them.
We believe that, given the chance, everyone has something to offer and is capable of making a valuable contribution to society irrespective of their background.
It is for these reasons that we feel strongly that groups that have historically been marginalised for whatever reasons whether it be their gender, their past, their personal circumstances, their age etc be given the opportunity to become a self-employed home manufacturer, gain some financial independence and get their lives back on track.
We partner with employment charities covering, women with convictions, refugees, addiction, homelessness and refuges. They help to us to identify those underrepresented people most in need of our support.
Our home manufacturers also make direct enquiries via our website.
At bide we look at the world as one community where everyone has the potential to contribute and make a change not only to their life but to the lives of those around them.
