If you care about doing good while looking great, you're just like us
You've chosen what to wear, you're already dreaming of the shoes and jewels that will complete the look, now there's just one more important choice to make: the charity that you want to support this time. Making you look great matters to us, but we know that you’ve chosen Nova Octo because like us you also want to do good.
Each time you borrow one of our beautiful pieces, you know that you will also be making a meaningful contribution to your chosen charity. Nova Octo will be donating 15% of proceeds from your rental, but we and our charity partners welcome any additional donation that you wish to make. The next time you visit you can support the same initiative again, or choose another cause to donate to.
From supporting environmental causes and wildlife initiatives that protect animals from the effect of human action, to lending your support to under-privileged youth in the United States and advancing girls’ rights globally. Our chosen charities echo our values of living a mindful, conscious life without harming our planet. Women are also at the core of our business - we are the founders, the team, and the clients - and so it's important to us to support women the world over who don't have the same opportunities and infrastructure that we enjoy.

Between 20,000 and 30,000 elephants die each year at the hands of poachers and may soon be extinct in the wild if trends continue. A joint initiative between Save the Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network, the Fund has conceived and implemented successful interventions to stop the killing and trafficking of elephants as a cause of the demand for ivory. The ECF invests 100% of every donation directly in its important work on the ground.
