A Step In the Right Direction
At the heart of Life of Riley we believe in crafting beautiful, life-lasting pieces that are not trend-led and will stand the test of time. This year we have refocused on actively reducing waste and minimising consumption too.
Here are some of the things we are doing
Our continued commitment to designing and selling a collection of quality heirloom home accessories and gifts that have longevity and are not part of a throw away culture.
We source sustainable packaging and reuse packaging materials wherever possible to minimise our impact on the environment. This applies to both our housekeeping and in the process of sourcing and creating our own designs and the additional materials we use to dispatch parcels to you.
In the UK Carma collaborate with the Green Task Force to help reintegrate our ex-servicemen into society through vocational training. This incredible work not only gives each veteran a recognised qualification and route to employment, it also aids their recovery from PTSD and other conflict related issues through Nature Based Therapy.
We are supporting Carma by raising funds to plant trees in the UK. Our aim is to plant at least 50 trees this year and we also have an option for customers to donate at checkout. £5 plants a tree in UK.
Carma is an organisation who are focused on the reforestation of the planet through empowering local communities around the world.

At any one time, Royal Trinity Hospice is caring for 700 people. Last year, Royal Trinity Hospice cared for 2,500 people and their families. 80% of the people they supported are cared for in their own homes, which is where most people prefer to be.
Products that are not suitable for resale in our outlet collection we donate to Royal Trinity Hospice charity shop in London. In March the sales of our donation raised over £700 for the charity.
Donations of this kind help to raise vital funds for Royal Trinity Hospice so that they can continue to provide skilled, compassionate care, support and advice to patients, and those close to them, for as long as they are needed.
