Besides No Nasties, we also run an amazing non-profit initiative called Once Upon A Doug - a social enterprise aimed at giving women from the cotton farming communities of India a secondary source of income.
But who's Doug?
Doug is a fashion accessory in the shape of a cloud which is hand-made by the women in their spare time using recycled cotton fabric. The local word for cloud is "dhug", which we have translated and personified into Doug!
He is a symbol of their struggles & their strengths; of their hopes & freedom. He's their silver lining on a cloudy day!
(Sold in a pack of 10)
Fyi, Doug is completely volunteer driven and No Nasties does not profit from it. 100% of the proceeds from the project go to the women and their farming communities.
What do I do with Doug?
The possibilities are endless.
- Wear Doug as a bracelet, a necklace, a head band.
- Tie him on your backpack or your bicycle!
- A keychain. A bookmark. A Christmas tree decoration. A gift wrapping thingy.
