The Problem

You want to shop with a clear conscience

It's important to be able to contribute to the changes you want to see in the world. But how do you 'vote with your wallet' without lengthy research, wading through potential greenwashing statements and accreditations? There are 100,000+ social enterprises in the UK but no one way to shop them all in one place…

Independent impact-led UK brands

Social enterprises are small businesses frustrated with the state of affairs.

Their social mission is at the heart of what they do, so they’re in the business of making a real difference in the world with every purchase. We bring together the very best of them and verify their impact through third parties such as Good Market, SEUK and B Corp. It's our ambition to help them create even more positive impact.

Employers with a conscience

It’s long been known companies are big drivers of change. We help them to buy more ethically from purpose-driven brands, as well as measure their positive impact.

Everything from employee Christmas gifts to coffee in the office kitchen can help to get us closer to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.  We see a future where buying social is the ordinary, expected — and measured. Get your company to join the mission.

We exist to enable fundamental societal change

Here, every business is a force for good. Every purchase you make creates a ripple of positive change for people and planet.

Did you know that 78% of autisic adults are unemployed? But when you buy from Harry Specters, 69p of every £1 spent directly goes to benefitting young autistic people and their families through employment, work experience and training.

8–10% of global emissions come from food waste

A whopping 44% of the UK’s fresh bread goes to waste. But Toast Ale have created a circular model that repurposes one slice of surplus, fresh bread to brew beer — with a longer shelf life.

Shop by brands that repurpose would-be wasted ingredients or materials.
