About Blue Badge Co

Independent Lifestyle Products Handmade in the UK to Enhance Independence and Enrich Lives. Chose us to express your True Self with pride!

In 2011 I, Ellen Green, was contemplating an uncertain future. I had been made redundant for a seemingly glamourous job in the music industry and was unsure of my next move. To stay busy, I helped my disabled friend individually stitch a series of stylish display wallets designed for the disabled parking permit. At the same time, I fell in love with an Akita puppy, who I decided to keep as I worked from home. I named him Bodhi.

Before Blue Badge Co the only other blue badge wallets on the market looked like many other disability products – clinical, dull and surprisingly difficult to use. We recognised a gap in the market for practical and appealing solutions for simple day-to-day problems, with bright, modern packaging, that said more about style than disability or age.

Dedicated to employing disabled people and those with limited work options, around 40% of the Blue Badge Co workforce are disabled or primary caregivers. We are a proud UK manufacturer!

Our Values

We’re on a mission to give people access to desirable, stylish lifestyle products that celebrate choice, independence and individuality.

We’re not big on trends. Our products are made to last, designed, and made slowly with love and care, not mass-produced in a Far East factory. Combining craftsmanship with enduring style, our designs are made to stand the test of time.

The provenance of our products is of great importance to us. We have a fully integrated business and are proudly a British manufacturer. We support small-scale and traditional industries, creating jobs in the UK and building a talented workforce by investing in skills.

We produce our collections in small batches. Our low-waste, just-in-time approach to manufacturing means that we avoid making more than is needed, thus leading to less waste.

Our due diligence to choosing suppliers focuses on ethical choices that support local businesses or companies whose sustainability policy aligns with ours. We work with UK suppliers wherever possible, many of who are based within a 10 miles radius.
