JessEco Designs

Jesseco Designs is a small sustainable clothing business run by me (Jessica) and my husband (Jonny) with the aim of giving something back to our poor suffering planet. One of the main driving forces behind Jesseco is to create hand-drawn clothing designs that highlight the plight of often overlooked species that are at risk – and particularly those that may have a less ‘cool’ reputation such as so-called ‘creepy crawlies’. Insects often get forgotten about in the fight for our planet, but our own survival actually depends on the valuable work that bugs carry out on a daily basis. That is why I have illustrated and curated my ‘Insect Respect’ collection at Jesseco and decided to donate £1 from every item purchased in this range to Buglife whose amazing work helps our essential insects to survive and thrive

Recycling for Buglife


You can donate all your broken and unwanted jewellery to raise money for Buglife.

If you have any gold, silver, odd earrings, broken chains, costume jewellery and watches, you can recycle them at no cost to you whilst making money for Buglife.
We can recycle:
• Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones).
• You can donate any unwanted banknotes from ANY country of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are a perfect start!

Our partners at Recycling for Good Causes will reuse and recycle the jewellery and Banknotes, giving the proceeds to Buglife, saving precious raw materials at the same time.

If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling to us, simply use your own envelope or jiffy bag (No bigger than A5 in size) and post free of charge by printing out the freepost label (see adjacent image) and attaching to your envelope.

*Please do not send coins or stamps to the freepost address as the postage costs will far outweigh your donation. *

Donate your Stamps
You can now donate your used stamps to raise much needed funds for Buglife. All kinds of stamps are welcome, on or off paper.
Simply cut or carefully rip the postage stamp from the used envelope, being careful that you don’t damage the stamp, and once you have a collection pop them in an envelope making sure you have the correct postage to:

PO Box 16992
Sutton Coldfield
B73 9YA
(*postage needs to be applied*)

Recycling for Good Causes will arrange collections for larger quantities of stamps weighing over 10kgs. This equates to about two buckets full of stamps.
For further information:

T: 0800 633 5323

If you have more items than will fit into an A5 sized envelope for Buglife
Then please call 0800 633 5323 or email [email protected] to find out more information on our polybag / sack recycling projects where you can recycle larger items.
