Vent for Change wins LaunchPad19 award

The online and on message environmental & ethical stationery brand has been recognised with three awards in as many months

Vent for Change leads the way as a new breed of conscientious purpose-led brands that combine beautifully designed products with an ethical purchasing option for their customers. Proceeds from the sale of every Vent product sold go towards children’s education projects worldwide. This ethical philosophy is combined with impeccable environmental credentials.

Set up by social and environmental entrepreneur Evan Lewis, Bristol based Vent for Change combines its support of global education with a range of notebooks and writing instruments made from recycled and sustainable materials, much of it produced in-house here in the UK. From their pencils produced near Stourport-on-Seven from recycled CD cases, to its pocket books made using reclaimed coffee cup fibres, every item has a strong environmental message of its own.

'We are delighted to have been recognised by the judges, this is further confirmation that purpose-led brands are making their mark in 2019 and we can’t wait to show off our range at the stationery show in London,' Lewis commented.

As one of the Launch Pad 2019 winners, Vent for Change will receive free exhibition space at the Stationery Show and promise to showcase up-coming ranges as well as their award winning Ideas Collection.

The strong back-story that supports the brand identity caught the imagination of the judges. In addition to their stationery range Vent also organise Share a Pencil Day, a nationwide global education awareness day and an Ambassador for Change programme giving away thousands of pencils worldwide.

Now available to retailers this contemporary design-led range demonstrates one thing more than any other; having strong ethical and eco credentials no longer means a dull or worthy finished article. Their hand-painted designs and subtle use of foil in their new Ideas Collection produces a stylish end result, and will surely be of interest to retailers and customers alike.
