Social Impact in Focus
Mazzi - Affordable, trendy, eco-friendly
Launched at the beginning of this month, Mazzi is a new authentic fashion brand supporting wildlife rescue and mental health initiatives across the UK and Ireland.
Mazzi was founded by University of Southampton student Amy Morgan, who received commendation from the judges at the New Entrepreneur Zone at this year's Venturefest event for her vision and drive. Mazzi creates beautiful, environmentally friendly products and raises awareness for a variety of key issues, including mental health and climate change. Mazzi products are created using 100% organic cotton and water-based inks, packaged in 100% recycled and biodegradable materials and made using 100% green energy.
Furthermore, 20% of profits from Mazzi go to mental health and wildlife charities. The first initiative supported by Mazzi, Kinsale Youth Support Service (KYSS), is a mental health charity based in County Cork, Ireland (pictured above with founder Amy). KYSS supports young people in the community with information and promoting understanding around mental health. A second charity will be announced soon!
