Our Values

Our Story

APRIL 2015: TWO BROKE FOUNDERS.

While in India, Danny came across incredibly talented craftsmen and families, who were competing against sweatshops and fast-fashion factories. Convinced he needed to do something, Danny called Kai and the two agreed to spend their savings on buying 100 bags, handmade by those local craftsmen. Duffle & Co. was born

SEPTEMBER 2015: THE WORST DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IN THE WORLD

The Duffle & Co. website was live, but the well oiled distribution process that’s now in place had not yet been figured out. Instead, the initial 100 bags resided underneath Danny’s bed and fulfillment of orders would be carried out by Danny driving 10 minutes to the local post office and putting the order in the mail. The fulfillment facility soon changed home to Kai’s laundry as demand grew, later moving to a friend’s garage before finally getting its own home.

APRIL - NOVEMBER 2016: DUFFLE & CO. TAKES OFF

With sales going well, Duffle & Co. expanded to other regions, finding suppliers in Bali and Nepal. This opened up options for materials that could be used, such as hemp and bamboo, allowing Duffle & Co.’s products to not only benefit the people making them, but be better for the planet too.

Duffle & Co. started working with large corporations to enable them to have a more positive impact when purchasing their branded merchandise and gifts.

NOW: THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

With a continuously growing team of staff and suppliers, Duffle & Co. is now able to have a greater impact than ever. Every day Duffle & Co. gets a little bit closer to creating a world where making products that support people and nature is the expectation, not the exception.

Our Initiatives

The Eden Reforestation Projects is a  nonprofit that plants millions of trees every year on behalf of donors, businesses, and foundations with a mission to recreate healthy forest systems that restore hope, alleviate suffering, empower people, and build local economies in impoverished communities.

We work with Eden Project to plant mangroves trees in Indonesia. With this project, we aimed to restore biodiversity, natural ecosystem, and promote carbon negative initiatives to businesses. These trees provide safe nurseries to restore the natural habitat of animals and improve the living condition in the water and on the land, which ultimately rejuvenates the environment and supports local people.

KiwiHarvest are food rescuing heroes that collect good food before it goes to waste and gets it to Kiwis in need.

They work with food businesses including supermarkets, producers, cafes and restaurants, to rescue the good food that they are not able to sell and speedily gets it to those that need it most. Drivers and volunteers deliver this food to a network of over 150 charities and social service agencies across New Zealand, enabling them to provide fresh, nutritious food, all for free! The positive social impact of feeding people in need and the environmental impact of keeping edible food out of the landfill is something we HAD to get behind!

It’s not news that our waterways in New Zealand are deteriorating. Concerns about the health of our streams and waterways have frequently occupied headlines and political speeches of recent years.

The core idea is this : to make it easy and exciting to invest in the health of our waterways – to open it up to everyone in New Zealand – people and businesses wanting to do good. The team works with community groups and landowners to raise enough funds to replant one million metres of waterway with native plants and trees. Planting a million metres of riparian margins isn’t the whole solution to our freshwater crisis, but it’s a significant step forward, and it’s something we can support right now. Check out our latest range to see how many trees you will plant!

Climate Action SDGWe care about our planet. Our goal eventually to provide a way in which businesses would be also able to promote a positive impact on this planet. We aimed to help businesses to take a climate action by reversing the carbon impact through tree planting.

Life on Land SDGBy working with Eden Project, we plant mangroves tree for each sale that we made. This will eventually restore the life on land by promoting biodiversity on the land ecosystem by providing habitat for animals
