We're supporting Pride Month in style. Literally.
We’ve always been supporters of LGBTQIA+ rights, and we know a thing or two about design. So for 2022, we’re supporting Pride month in style. Literally. Our talented creatives have rustled up some original Pride designs, which you can purchase on T-shirts and tote bags.
About our Initiative
We wanted to mark June’s Pride month by launching a bespoke range of T-shirts and tote bags, designed by our very own Waste talent. As part of our ongoing support of the LGBTQIA+ community, and with the aim of marking Pride Month in a way that truly makes a difference, we has developed a range of eight items, to be sold via the website pride.waste-creative.com - which you can check out now!
The colourful tote bags and T-shirts feature the traditional rainbow colours of the LGBTQIA+ community, but with a twist. The pieces each showcase an agency team member’s personal style of illustration, making them uniquely Waste.
All proceeds from sales of our marvellous merch will be donated to charity. This year, we’re supporting Mermaids - a small charity that supports gender variant and transgender youth in the UK, and one that’s close to our hearts.
Mermaids rely on donations and volunteers to keep their services open for young people and families, and they have lots of other ways that you can support, fundraise, get involved and donate. You can find out more about Mermaids here.
As Waste joined Keywords Studios in December 2021, the company has generously agreed to further boost support for Mermaids through the Keywords Cares Matching Program.
Conor McGee, Account Manager, Waste Creative, said: “We’ve always been big supporters of LGBTQIA+ rights, and we know a thing or two about design. So, for 2022, we’re supporting Pride Month in style, with some original merch created by our talented team.
“We’ve chosen to give all proceeds from sales of our merch to Mermaids, a charity that provides much needed support to Trans youth in the UK and is very close to our hearts. Mermaids relies on donations and volunteers to keep its services open for young people and families, which is why it’s so important to offer our support.
“We hope lots of people will grab some of our fabulous merch, and support Mermaids and Pride.”
