Buggies For Good
We collect pre-loved buggies from generous gems around the world, our clever little engineers give them the once over to make sure they’re in good working order, then we donate them back into the community or to organisations. Read all about the programme

Surgical Research Trust
and their groundbreaking research. A phil&teddy bear is given to each child undergoing surgery at Wellington Hospital, to help to put a smile on their face and to provide a friend for comfort during a scary time. phil&teddy is there to make a child's recovery just that little bit more “bear-able”.

China tour sponsorship 2013
Thanks to over 10 years of building reciprocal business growth relationships in China, phil&teds took the opportunity to export some of ‘New Zealand into China by supporting the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s tour’. At first glance it may seem an unusual sponsorship choice, but phil&teds is well known for a ‘business as un-usual’ mantra, and decisions such as this are never without sound motive. “There’s so much to this,” says chief cook & bottle washer, Campbell Gower. “We’ve long bridled at the perception that China is an unsophisticated ‘factory for the world’. It’s a country with a tremendous cultural history, and a currency of high performance business."
“At phil&teds we’ve built a high performance culture benchmarked daily against tough international competition. You gotta be the best! And we like to think that mirrors Royal New Zealand Ballet. So we want to celebrate the innovation, performance culture and abundant creativity of the Company, and it’s truly thrilling to see that reflected in Chinese media,” says Gower.
