A better way of doing good
Anything you buy supports something. Everyday you have a choice to either support a multinational company that exploits people and the environment, or buy products that observe fair trade, are cruelty-free and help ease social sufferings. If we can make better products and share the stories behind them in a way that make our buyers feel better about themselves too, then we can do this world more good.

What We Do
We inspire future leaders
By exposing dreamers to the works of successful social entrepreneurs who renew their sense of purpose and focus not just on profits but with the number of lives they transform, we hope to inspire the creation of more businesses that link us to a larger purpose.
We innovate with you
By adopting an ‘open source’ philosophy that allow our consumers to co-create our products, we can communicate our story in a more meaningful way to everyone.
We invest all throughout
We provide advice, networking assistance, access to capital, marketing expertise and other valuable assets to the most promising young social entrepreneurs in the country today.
We celebrate the ordinary
