Social Responsibility

At Sycamore Lane, social responsibility is not an afterthought; it is the defining principle upon which the company was founded.

Our social enterprise business model is based upon collaboration, cooperation, contribution, and caring, so we work with industry participants and registered charities with a view to sharing our success for the benefit of our business partners and the community.

We promote good products and the suppliers who provide them. Separate but together, we bring you amazing products and we do it at beneficial prices. And when we infuse it with various community interest initiatives under the Rural Symphony initiative, we create Value with Values.

Our Suppliers

Sycamore Lane provides local entities with a platform to increase product sales with outcomes that benefits the community. Our commitment is to add a number of gift boxes containing products made by social enterprises so that gifts purchased by our customers have a major social impact. This supports local communities and local jobs throughout Ireland.

Our Customers

Our promise to customers is to provide them with a wide range of product choices at beneficial prices in the most convenient way, and to support customers with a service which puts them at the heart of everything we do.

Our price policy is to only charge the recommended retail price set by our suppliers so that our customers receive a fair price and value for money. The recommended retail price is also used to price curated gift boxes with no additional or hidden box charges.

Our Community

Our commitment to the community under the Rural Symphony initiative is to promote positive health and wellbeing by donating 100% of our profit to our charity partners to help people struggling with adverse mental health events.

Our Environment
