Our team is driven by the idea that we might all live in a better world. A world where products are made to last, where we buy less, and each thing we own means more.
By now you know that we’re here to change the way that people shop. This year in pursuit of that goal we’ve done a fair bit of changing ourselves - hopefully you’ve noticed - and we want to keep pushing the boundaries.
We’re challenging the way sales are done.
We know what this time of year means. It’s the time that major retailers would rather that you put less thought into your purchases. It’s quantity over quality, with unsustainable discounts leaving independent businesses vulnerable.
But at the same time, value has never been more important. We understand that profoundly. For the savvy shopper, this time of year can be a life-saver. Our question to ourselves was this. How can we give our customers something meaningful, without it compromising our challenge to overconsumption?
Our solution is this. Rather than making you think less, we’re asked you what you wanted on sale. Starting from November 20th we'll discount the things with the most votes, by as much as we’re reasonably able to.
We didn't put our entire product range in the poll, as we have an awful lot of products. Our long-list is based on the products you most visit and purchase, and omits several brands that honourably do not discount as a rule.
Starting Friday 20th November, we'll put one product on sale each day. Ten deals. Ten days. Ten things that last.

We'll also be updating this blog each day with updates.
