Since our launch in 2020, we have been committed to giving back to charities with every order. We have contributed to multiple charities over the last few years, depending on where we can make the most positive difference to peoples lives at any given time.
We put giving back at the heart of everything we do, and believe that:
"Small acts performed by many people
can transform the world"
Our Partner Charities
Constellations London x SettleUp Earth, 2020-present
At Constellations London, we want to make a positive impact on our environment. We offset the carbon emissions associated with our operations to help preserve the world we love. Through our partner SettleUp Earth, we fund one tree to be planted in Mozambique with every sale. Every order helps create fair employment, rebuild ecosystems, and remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
More than planting trees
Planting trees supports the reforestation of mangrove ecosystems in Mozambique. Why mangroves? Crucially, mangrove forests protect against coastal erosion and support the development of marine ecosystems. They provide essential habitats and help maintain biodiversity, whilst sequestering carbon at a rate 2-4 times greater than mature forests - the highest carbon density of all terrestrial ecosystems. The rate of carbon offsetting is far greater when plating Mangroves. The impact of one tree planted over its lifetime is around an incredible 300kg of CO2 reduction.
Encouraging industry change and UN Sustainable Development Goals
The work we fund through our offsetting partner meets 10 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Employees are paid a living wage for their work, irrespective of their gender or social status. The hiring of both local men and women helps to address gender inequalities within the region. We support poverty alleviation by providing sustainable incomes and secure, safe employment to workers in low-income countries.

Constellations London x When You Wish Upon A Star, 2020-2022
When You Wish Upon A Star fulfils the wishes of children living with a life-threatening illness. The charity could provide children with their very own laptop to talk to their friends whilst in hospital, take them on their dream holiday to Lapland at Christmas time, or whizz them off to Florida to fulfil their dream of going to Disneyland to meet their favourite characters. Providing them with an escape and amazing memories in the face of any adversity. We are proud to be able to support such a fantastic cause aligned with our brand core values.
