As part of our Meet the Maker series, we speak to the people behind the creations in the Big Issue Shop – a platform for buying ethical products which put people and the planet first. This time, we speak to Karis Gill, co-founder of Social Stories Club.
What can we find on your part of the Big Issue Shop?
The most exciting social enterprise gift hampers are filled with incredible products such as teas, truffles, and socks that each have a fascinating story of how they make a difference in the world such as educating girls or providing employment to individuals with disabilities.

How do your products make a positive difference in the world?
By giving a Social Stories Club gift hamper you are introducing the world to social enterprises and their incredible stories. You will also be creating jobs for those who need them most as we hire individuals with barriers to employment and are a living wage employer. All our gifts are packaged in sustainable materials, and we offset the carbon from delivery too.
What inspired you to start your company and how did it start?
We have a vision for the world that one day every business will be led by a social mission and businesses will lead in solving some of the worlds biggest challenges.
