It’s that time of the week when we talk to you about businesses that are putting some good out into the world - and what exactly that good looks like.
Up this week we have yummy Christmas sarnies, eco-friendly footie boots, and a B-Corp that helps people get sustainable, flexitarian food. Let’s dig in!
The first hospitality company in Spain to achieve B Corp status, Flax and Kale is a health food company that is making its way to the UK. Since Earth Day 2021, the company has planted a tree for each e-commerce sale with 6609 being planted in 2021, saving 132.4 tons of carbon.
Since 2021 they have been re-using packaging, have introduced plant-based packaging and recycled plastic, and aim to help people live healthier and more eco-friendly lives with sustainably sourced flexitarian food. We love to see it.
Maybe you didn’t expect to see your local shop on this list, but they deserve to be here. This Christmas the Co-Op have brought back their charity Christmas sandwiches to help tackle inequality in communities across the UK.
These Christmas sarnies will help Co-op's charity build fairer and more co-operative communities of the future by funding support for issues like health and wellbeing, sustainability, and inclusion and equity in communities. Plus, they taste great.
Sokito has come up with a way to make football boots more sustainable - by using sustainably sourced materials to help make a mark on your football career, but not your planet. The boots use kangaroo leather, which is a tough material and a natural byproduct of population control in Australia (where kangaroos are common enough to be considered pests), cellulose, and recycled plastic.
It might sound odd at first, but the reality is a tough, but sustainable, football boot that helps save our planet!
