We think our partners are pretty special! They are changing the world for the better and are the unseen helpers championing the issues that matter to us. How we choose our partners is really important as we do all the work so you don't have to.
The main things we look at are their impact model and the transparency of this impact. It is what they do over and above being an ethical company that stands them apart. The cause they are trying to impact is usually at the centre of their business rather than a afterthought. It is the reason for their existence.
Being ethically sourced and using sustainable methods is just the beginning of the Social Enterprise products. We look for Social Enterprises who are creating employment opportunities for the marginalised and support underserved and underfunded communities. We ensure packaging is minimal, using recycled and plastic free. Edible products are free from nasties, locally sourced and are as close to nature as possible. All businesses are Australian owned and many are owned by females.
Mental Health, Animal Welfare, Poverty Alleviation, Homelessness, and the Environment are some of the areas the Social Enterprises on the Goods 4 Good platform focus on. They work with organisations, charities and not for profits in these areas and contribute through sharing their profits and championing these causes. Some Social Enterprises are working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals whilst others are trying to change consumer behavior for the better.
A few of the founders have lived experience of the causes or their lives have been touched by that cause.
Social Enterprises on Goods 4 Good platform have clearly defined what their impact is. They are transparent about how much or how they contribute, who they contribute to and report on their impact to date. Goods 4 Good regularly updates impact information on its platform.
You will see icons throughout our website to quickly identify the cause that our Social Enterprises impact and how they impact it. Our partners are clear and transparent about who they impact, why and how they contribute.
