INVESTING IN THE COMMON GOOD MAKES COMMON SENSE

We believe that businesses are key to creating sustainable solutions for the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems. Buy Good. Feel Good.” is dedicated to building a community of people and organizations who believe that business should have a positive impact on the world. We aspire to make ethical consumption the norm, inspiring all businesses to operate for the common good.

When businesses operate with profit as their sole objective, workers are exploited, the environment is polluted, and our natural resources are depleted. In contrast, social enterprises use business practices to create positive change in the world. They contribute to sustainable development through innovations in healthcare, renewable energy, microfinance, and much more. Social enterprises empower communities and create fair employment opportunities for the world’s poorest and most marginalized groups.

We aspire to live in a world where businesses are leading the development of a healthy, fair, and equitable society. Every purchase we make has an impact. “Buy Good. Feel Good.” connects consumers with the brands that make a difference. Join our Movement and let us change the world, one purchase at a time. As a social enterprise, we are committed to reinvesting the majority of our profits into our operations to grow, support more social enterprises and ensure the fulfilment of our mission.
