Creature Candy introduces a range of fresh and timeless British made homewares and gifts, including fine bone china mugs, tea towels, aprons, prints, notebooks and handmade soaps. The company was created by Lizzie Barker to raise awareness of Britain's declining & protected wildlife species, to inspire people to take active roles in conservation and to help raise funds for the charities that endeavour to conserve our wildlife.
Creature Candy proudly donates 10% of the price of every product sold to British wildlife charities, including Bat Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, and Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
With each purchase through our website we provide information about the species on the product, along with details about the related charity. All our products are designed and made in the UK and we firmly believe in supporting UK businesses.
We were lucky enough to be shortlisted for My Country Business Awards 2015 in association with Country Homes and Interiors Magazine, and we were selected as a #WOW winner by Jacqueline Gold.
So far this year we have raised hundreds of pounds for British wildlife charities and have helped fund some important conservation projects as a result. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us and we look forward to funding many more wildlife conservation projects in the future.
For me, my success so far has been largely due to social media. If you do not have a Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account, got one! Posting daily helps you gain an army of loyal followers and is a quick, easy and cheap way of getting your brand out there.
