We’ve brought two hearts together by switching our office supplies and creating a partnership with the social enterprise WildHearts.

Having launched our Green Heart Procurement initiative to partner with social enterprises as part of our supply chain, we’ll ensure that we use the power of the c.£750 million a year we spend to transform as many lives as possible, whilst still delivering great service and cost outcomes for our customers and members.

Working with WildHearts

WildHearts Office offers 35,000 products and funds the work of the WildHearts Foundation. As a result, by switching to WildHearts Office, we’re turning everyday spend into an investment for the future, sustainably transforming lives in the UK and across the world while having a positive impact on our business.

Our office supplies spend is transforming 600 lives every year through WildHearts Microfinance, and funds 300 Love to Learn education packs (WildHearts' Global Literacy Programme) in the UK to support the free delivery of the ‘Micro-Tyco’ schools programme.
