Yodomo's mission is to tackle pre-consumer textile waste generated by the interior design sector, and other textile waste producing businesses, transforming it into a resource for maker and craft communities while promoting circular solutions.
In partnership working initially with the London Borough of Hackney, Yodomo has successfully diverted over five tonnes of textile waste, encouraging creative repurposing. This approach not only champions the art of repurposing but also raises awareness about sustainable materials, fosters community growth, provides valuable skills training, and opens up new markets for upcycled products.
By collaborating with local businesses and securing funding, Yodomo is actively expanding its mission to reduce textile waste and minimise the carbon footprint.
Yodomo works to meet the targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 3: Good Health and Wellbeing and 12: Responsible Consumption and Production. It was awarded the 'Progress toward circularity' at the Marie Claire Sustainability Awards 2023 and were ‘Highly Commended’ at the Tech4Good Awards 2022.
In 2021 Yodomo was selected for the Cambridge Social Ventures Programme (Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation, University of Cambridge Judge Business School) and became a social venture.
