Meet Heal: the rewilding charity on a mission to give land back to nature, forever.

In today's world, taking care of nature and fighting climate change is crucial. That's where rewilding comes in – it's like giving nature a helping hand by letting it go back to its natural self. And guess what? It’s not just good for plants and animals, it's awesome for tackling climate change too!

That's why we're excited to introduce Heal Rewilding as our fourth charity partner at Ticket Tailor. 

To mark the launch, we caught up with Ruby, Communications Trainee at Heal, to discuss the importance of rewilding and how these donations will support their mission of returning land to nature.

20 Earth Day ideas for event planners 

20 Earth Day ideas for event planners 

Earth Day is just around the corner – and this year’s theme is to Invest in our Planet.

As an event planner, one way you can do so is to recognise Earth Day through your events, whether that’s to raise money for a specific charity or simply to get attendees thinking. Raising awareness alone can be an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to encouraging others to take action. So it’s definitely worthwhile taking some time to give one or more of your events an Earth Day theme over the course of the next month or so.

On that note – below are 20 ideas to get you started. We’ve broken them down into ideas for:

  • Craft workshop events/classes

  • Fitness & wellness events/classes

  • Community events

  • Music, entertainment & other events

Let’s go 👀👇.

B Corp Month 2023: Three B2B tech companies explain how they “Go Beyond”

B Corp Month 2023: Three B2B tech companies explain how they “Go Beyond”

Every year, the B Corp movement runs B Corp Month, providing a chance to raise awareness, and shine a spotlight on the businesses trailblazing new paths towards a fairer future for our people and planet. 

This year, the B Corp Month theme is ‘We Go Beyond’. And we want to be the voice for B2B companies, to show that the B Corp symbol isn’t just for consumer brands (think: Patagonia, Ben and Jerry’s, and Body Shop!). Given the global B2B market value is over 5 times larger than B2C, our sphere of influence could be much greater. 

So we’ve partnered up with some of our fellow B Corp certified B2B tech businesses to help demonstrate that, in fact, B2B companies can, and should, make an impact. In this blog, we hope to assure other businesses like ours that you definitely don’t need to be a consumer brand to join the B Corp movement.
