This week we were pleasantly surprised to receive an email saying that we have been shortlisted for the Made in the UK Award category at the 2021 Great British Entrepreneur Awards for the North West and Yorkshire & The Humber region!
With over 4,800 entries and a small cohort selected for the shortlist, it’s humbling to be recognised for our work. We pride ourselves on sourcing materials locally, working with local craftspeople and promoting a transparent and responsible supply chain. Making things in the UK helps us reduce our carbon footprint, support local livelihoods and brings us one step closer to a circular economy - where we repair, reuse and repurpose.
None of this would be possible without our supporters. We love the brand and community we have built, bringing together outdoor enthusiasts and conscious consumers.
Regardless of the final outcome, if we’ve raised awareness of the need for more responsible brands, conscious consumers and the benefits of connecting with nature, that’s the best outcome for us (and the planet).
Well done Oz, Nel and the whole Bear team…another great step on your journey!!! Fantastic news, all the best, Trevor
