At betternotstop, we believe every business has the ability and responsibility to make the world a better place. It’s why we champion purpose-driven and ethical businesses that are making positive impacts.
Previously, we shouted out some of the best ethical businesses that we’ve worked with and now we want to champion some of our favourite London-based businesses for good.
Businesses For Good: London
Mooncup offers women a more environmentally friendly alternative with their reusable menstrual cups, a principle which is further seen in their production, packaging and marketing. The surgical grade silicone cups also have the added bonus of eliminating the risk of toxic shock syndrome.
Food sharing app Olio combats the ever-growing issue of food waste (something we’ve written about before, here and here). Olio users donate surplus food to other users who want or need it. The app helps to curb the £12.5 billion worth of food waste that ends up in landfill every year and also provides support to individuals in need.
This company created an edible membrane derived from seaweed that carries water as well as any plastic alternative that is both edible and biodegradable within 6 weeks. They hope this innovative material will be adapted to contain all kinds of drinks or condiments, and possibly toiletries in the future.
