Together we can change the world

#TOGETHERBAND brings together British sustainable fashion brand BOTTLETOP and one of the world leaders in financial services UBS. It’s by connecting people from diverse backgrounds and far-flung places, whether as individuals, businesses or governments, that we will make change happen.

#TOGETHERBAND champions the United Nations’ 17 global goals for a sustainable future. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change.

Proceeds from sales of the bands are currently being donated to the #TOGETHERFUND, which will support coronavirus emergency relief. The scheme is raising money to help the Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which is led by the World Health Organization, and Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), as well as other life-changing projects selected by the UBS Optimus Foundation and Bottletop Foundation to advance the goals.

Each #TOGETHERBAND is a symbol of commitment to one of the goals. Every band is made from reclaimed ocean plastic and decommissioned firearm metal. The bands are handcrafted by artisans in Nepal, creating skills and livelihoods for the community.

#TOGETHERBANDs come as a pair – one to wear, one to share. Since we launched on World Earth Day this year thousands of people have been wearing and sharing their bands including David Beckham, who shared his goal 3 bands with his son Brooklyn and LeBron James, and Naomi Campbell, who shared her goal 1 band with Edward Enninful, editor in chief of British Vogue.

Come together and gift a goal to make a positive change.

With 17 colours to choose from, each of our #TOGETHERBAND bracelets is a symbol of the UN’s 17 global goals for sustainable development. Each pack contains two bands: there’s one for your loved one and another for them to gift to a friend.

Whether you need the perfect present for someone fighting for gender equality or something thoughtful to give to an advocate for ending world poverty, there’s a #TOGETHERBAND that’s perfect for everyone. And because each band is made from upcycled ocean plastic (for each pair of bands 1kg of plastic is removed from the ocean), you’ll be helping to save the planet too.
