Foil Me Community
At Foil Me, we are all about giving back. Over the years, with the help of our Foil Me Movers, we have supported a variety of charities and foundations. Whether it be through donations, campaigns or simply raising awareness, supporting our community has always remained one of our core values.
Inspired by a longstanding appreciation of our Indigenous culture and assisting children’s literacy, Foil Me is honoured and delighted to announce the release of their highly anticipated collection, The Jujup, created in partnership with the Australian Hairdressing Council (AHC), and highly esteemed contemporary Australian Indigenous artist, Sarrita King. Featuring a vibrant colour palette of orange, turquoise and pink, this striking collection celebrates the art of Indigenous storytelling through a tale of growth, learning and community. Closely translating to ‘beginning’ in Gurindji, The Jujup embodies the notion that education is where it all begins.
Foil Me is helping make education more accessible for isolated Indigenous communities across Australia by teaming up with The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) where we are donating $1 from every box of The Jujup sold to the ILF. The ILF are Community-led, responding to requests for culturally relevant books, including early learning board books, resources, and programs to support Communities to create and publish their stories in languages of their choice. With funds going towards the ILF’s Book Supply Program, every $10 raised provides children in remote communities with a culturally appropriate book.
Meticulously crafted by, and exclusive to Foil Me and our distributors, The Bee collection took six weeks just in the design process.
Co-owner and Creative Designer, Emily Ciardiello, assiduously hand drew the BEEautiful creation featuring bees, and beehives on a sky blue background, whilst our graphic design genie, Chelsea Winter, expertly brought the illustrations to life, digitally.
An Australian registered not-for-profit charity,Wheen Bee Foundation promotes awareness of the importance of bees for food security, and funds research that addresses the national and global threat to bees.
Following on from Emily’s dream to contribute to the survival of the global bee population, we are donating $1.00 from the sale of every box in The Bee collection to assist Wheen Bee Foundation. So far, the Foil Me community have raised over $7,000 for The Wheen Bee Foundation.
This gorgeous foil is artfully embellished with hand-illustrated pink roses by Foil Me’s Creative Director and Co-Founder, Emily Ciardiello, and Graphic Designer, Chelsea Winter. Featuring our premium Foil Me signature embossing, our custom watercolour rose designed foil has been specifically created to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.
This beautiful flower is particularly special as it has been drawn based on a rose from Sheree Knobel’s tree that was planted in memory of her sister, Melanie Callow, who died from cancer in 2015.
From the sale of every box of the BCR collection, $1.00 will be donated to assist the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to help achieve their mission of Zero Deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Every year we design a new foil to ensure this cause is at the forefront of everyone's minds, particularly in September and October, where we can raise the most awareness.
A retro and rambunctious foil, The Pride features the rainbow colours of the Pride flag - inspired by Pride Month (June). This collection was specifically designed to pay homage to the LGBTIQ+ community and to celebrate love, equality and difference with the 'kissing rainbow' design.
At Foil Me it’s important to us to combine innovation and a philanthropic ethos to give back. This is why $1.00 from the sale of every box is donated to assist The Equality Project an Australian charity bringing together LGBTIQ+ people and allies to promote a better, more just, and fairer society for all Australians.
A truly unique collaboration, the design incorporates unique and striking line Illustrations by GSC’s Natalie Hapeshi and graphic design prowess by Foil Me’s Chelsea Winter in composing the layout, colour selection and design of both of the foil sheets and box. Each eye-catching foil in watermelon pink and cyan visually depicts the nine simple steps that GSC uses to recycle all salon metals, with a call to action to #SplashYaTrash.
FoodCycle's vision is to make food poverty, loneliness and food waste a thing of the past for every community. By creating welcoming spaces for people from all walks of life to meet, eat and have conversations, and by offering a weekly telephone Check-in and Chat, FoodCycle are supporting people’s health and mental wellbeing.
So far, we have been able to donate over £600 to FoodCycle UK.
After the tragic bushfires that blazed all over Australia during the summer of 2019/2020, Foil Me wanted to offer support to the animals that had been injured and displaced; so we donated $1.00 from the sale of every packet sold for the month of January and February to Animals Australia.
At the beginning of 2023, Foil Me expanded their focus to the home by venturing into the world of reusable food foil wraps, this time donating $0.20c from every box sold to Animals Australia. With a large aspect of their focus being to make more conscious, sustainable choices, this couldn’t be a more fitting union.
We are proud to share that Foil Me have now invested in crowdfunding project called The Sun Exchange.
With our investment, Foil Me now own 1.1kw worth of solar panels for Outerwest Recycling Plant (365.04kW) in Campdown, South Africa who recycle 200 tonnes of plastics per month.
November 2021 update: The project has now begun construction and soon this solar-powered plant will create clean and affordable energy for the next 20 years.
Foil Me wanted to do something to give back to the earth as well as offset the carbon emissions of shipping. As a Christmas present to 100 of our Foil Me movers, we gifted them 1 tree planted by Reforest, on their behalf.
Thank you for helping our Foil Me forest flourish!
