What’s inside our House by Urban Splash x Social Supermarket moving in gift box?
From award-winning Sea Change Prosecco to White & Green bamboo toilet roll, here’s a closer look at the products included in our moving in gift box and why we love them.
Inside the box, our new homeowners will find 20 household essentials – including coffee, chocolates and Prosecco – created by brands on a mission to make the world a better place.
From tackling social issues like unemployment and rehabilitation, to saving the environment by reducing single-use plastics, each product selected is rooted by a compelling backstory that supports a worthy cause.
Below, we’ve compiled a product round-up to tell you more about each item included, and how the brands they belong to are doing their bit to leave our planet in a better state than how it was left to us.
Sea Change Prosecco
Celebrating your first night in your new home wouldn’t be complete without a toast.
So, the team behind Social Supermarket made sure to include a bottle of Sea Change’s award-winning Prosecco.
Sea Change is passionate about creating beautifully crafted wine, but they’re equally passionate about turning the tide on plastic pollution.
