We* believe this world needs a group hug.
So we* started SoulBites. A space to find and share L.O.V.E. For yourself, others and the planet. With words, art, insights, music and other cool stuff that take you to a world of positive energy, sustainable living, creativity, self-love and wellbeing.
SoulBites Foundation wants to create positive impact with social business initiatives, tackling social and environmental problems with very concrete action. Following our principles of L.O.V.E. (Local, Original, Vintage, Eco), we create a better world – and we’d love you to be part of our soulful community.
Our first collection was the "L.O.V.E. You" circular jewelry collection together with NoWa. A unique, handmade collection from recycled silver and gold out of waste mobile phones. 100% of this collection's profits go to Kikid Foundation - they teach self-love at high schools with creative programs.
Other collections followed: "Army of L.O.V.E.", an upcycled unisex fashion collection made of vintage army & navy clothes from which the profits go to Masterpeace Foundation. They inspire people to use their talent and energy for peace building. Our "24/7 L.O.V.E." slow fashion women's collection together with Greyhound is mindfully made from vintage men's shirts. All profits of this collection will be reinvested in new, handmade items.

We believe in L.O.V.E.
If we love ourselves more, we are more capable of loving others and the planet. That is why we have chosen for the principles of L.O.V.E. as our guide in everything we do.
L.O.V.E. for yourself:
Lust for life / Original & Optimistic / inner & outer Voice / Energetic
L.O.V.E. for the planet:
Local / Original / Vintage / Eco
With SoulBites Foundation, we want to scale social business impact and support self-love charities. We do that by co-creating L.O.V.E. based collections with social businesses and either donate 100% of the profits to self-love charities or invest in new items of the collection for more impact.
Our first co-creation was the L.O.V.E. You Circular Jewelry collection with NoWa; made of 100% recycled silver and gold from mobile phone waste. All profits are donated to Kikid, a charity teaching self-love at highschools.
History of L.O.V.E.
SoulBites started in 2019 on Instagram with @instasoulbites curated by our founder, Odette van Zijdveld. The idea was to give this world a group hug with words & art with soul.
In 2020, a handful of partners joined and the SoulBites brand was formed and defined - as a common passion project, next to our jobs, businesses and studies.
In January 2021, SoulBites Foundation was established with the goal to increase the L.O.V.E. level in this world. Love for ourselves, each other, and the planet. We support businesses and charities doing just this.
With SoulBites Foundation, we want to help scale social business impact and support self-love charities. We do that by co-creating L.O.V.E. based collections (meaning Local, Original, Vintage, Eco) with social businesses.
We either donate 100% of the profits of these collections to self-love charities or invest in new items of the collection for more impact.
L.O.V.E. the planet and support sustainable products & brands. Increase your impact, buy #Local #Original #Vintage #Eco.
