About Our Store
Welcome to our brand-new online store! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.
We want to provide a place for people to shop, knowing they are making a positive difference to people's lives whilst being kind to our planet.
At The Connection at St Martin in the Fields, we are very fortunate to have our own art studio filled to the brim with art supplies, which all clients have access to. There is such a wealth of talent found within this studio alone. The designs you see on our wrapping paper, Christmas cards and tees have been donated to us by our clients and help give back to the vital services offered here at The Connection. Art can be incredibly therapeutic and is often a very important part of many people's journey to recovery.
The product photography featured through our Show Your Connection store has all been taken in collaboration with clients as part of a workshop teaching new skills. In the future, we are hoping to expand our store and include clients in even more ways.
We also believe wholeheartedly that we should be making every effort to reduce our environmental impact. We decided right from the beginning that we had no interest in adding to our planet's waste and mass producing "on-trend" items that quickly go out of fashion and are not built to last. We hand-pick every brand we choose to work with to ensure their credentials align with our values. Every item featured in our store is made from recycled or sustainable materials and is built to last. This ensures that all our customers only ever receive high-quality products that are kind to our planet.
We don’t just stop there. All of our mailing bags are carbon neutral and 100% recyclable. They are produced from sugar cane, the greenest material around, that is grown on reclaimed wasteland. They possess all the durability and strength of standard mail bags but with a smaller environmental impact. All clothing garmets will be wrapped in FSC-approved tissue paper, whilst cups and bottles will be wrapped in recycled corrugated paper, to protect your items on their journey to you.
