Giving back to the Wellington community

  • The majority of our wooden gift boxes are made by The Shed Project** — a community space in Paraparaumu on the Kāpiti Coast, providing opportunities for people with disabilities
  • We set aside 1% from every sale and donate to Wellington charities such as Kaibosh or DCM
  • Growing Wellington’s regional economy; by buying from We Love Local you directly help small companies in our communities

Read more about our social mission and sustainability commitment.

** Depending on availability we may substitute The Shed Project boxes with a similar-looking wooden box manufactured in NZ. In that case, we will donate $1 per box to The Shed Project.
