What we are all about…
Lions, Tigers & Bears was set up to promote and support an empowered, informed and holistic approach to living life with and after cancer, and to help support individuals and families directly affected by cancer.
We offer access to products, services, information and advice which help people affected by cancer to proactively and positively manage the side effects from treatment and their illness, their mental wellbeing, the practical aspects of living with cancer, and support them in living life to the full – undefined by their illness.
We feel a strong social responsibility – cancer can strip you of who you are, your sense of self, your security, and your physical and mental wellbeing. Our primary aim is to help people affected by cancer to feel good, to feel like themselves, to feel empowered and to have access to what they need to help them achieve this.
As a social enterprise, we reinvest our profits into the pursuit of this goal, and in addition, by championing and supporting other independent, responsible and sustainable businesses and charities in their work, we aim to have a material positive impact on society and the environment as a whole.
We feature and promote cancer charities, support groups and not-for-profit organisations free of charge within our online directory to help ensure that our users can always find the support that they need.
We also provide more direct support for a few chosen charities in the form of a regular donation – chosen for the fact that they also support people affected by cancer to feel good during a difficult time.
Our current chosen charities are:
Our approach to business is very simple. We believe in quality of products, responsibility to the earth, to each other and to our animal pals, transparency of information and a friendly, professional approach at all times.
We strongly believe in the importance of reducing the toxic load on our bodies and within our environment. The skincare and make up products we stock are natural, free from all nasties and harmful toxins – such as parabens and sulphates, and are never, ever tested on animals! Greenwashing makes us mad, and we only stock brands that we would be happy using ourselves.
We select products based on quality, personal experience, trusted endorsements or because they are on our own wish list.We are trying to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible, because there is no planet B, and we very much hope that when you receive your order from us, you will do the same.
