At Hugget we think it is important to care for our beautiful planet so for each adult Hugget jacket sold we will plant a tree somewhere that it is much needed.

Hugget is working with Funwe Farm in Malawi to give papaya trees to the local school children. If every child is given a tree there will be plenty of fruit to help enrich the diet of the people in their village.

We will donate one tree for every Hugget jacket sold, the best way you can help us is to BUY A HUGGET JACKET! If you feel passionately about this cause, as we do, contact us at hello@hugget.co.uk for information about how to donate more. THANK YOU!!!

Funwe Farm strives to improve the lives of people in the Mangochi district of Malawi. They do this by providing employment, training people on agricultural practice, and developing the best types of maize (the local staple) for the area.

One of the farm’s many projects is a tree nursery. They cultivate seedlings of many types of fruit and vegetables to be developed and sold locally to provide people with a broader diet and introduce valuable vitamins that are rare in the area. This is where the guava seedlings are being raised, ready for us to give to the children at the local school.

Papaya is a fruit rich in nutrients including provitamin A, vitamin C and dietary fibre. It aids digestion and can be used in the treatment of cuts, stings and burns. Papaya trees grow rapidly and fruit within three years. These trees are ideal to be planted in Malawian villages as they are tall and thin so don’t take up too much space or moisture. Their roots help to strengthen the ground which is very dusty and susceptible to erosion, especially during the rainy season when heavy storms can have devastating effects on village land. And to top it all, the fruit is delicious!

We will donate one tree for every Hugget jacket sold, the best way you can help us is to BUY A HUGGET JACKET! If you feel passionately about this cause, as we do, contact us at hello@hugget.co.uk for information about how to donate more. THANK YOU!!!
