5 Local Melbourne Startups Saving Our Planet
Humanism Global is a social enterprise that aims to eliminate poverty, one job at a time. They currently work with marginalised women in Pondicherry (South India), who face social and cultural barriers. This prevents them from having access to dignified education & employment and translates into a lack of sustainable income.
Today, the women create event merchandise including artisanal lanyards and customised 100% GOTS-Certified organic cotton tote bags. Their products are customisable and can incorporate branding and design requests, which are screen-printed by hand. Each product is handmade by the women, and comes with an ‘Impact Card’, which tells the story of the human that made your products.
Every order, contributes towards the women’s financial independence through providing them with access to safe and sustainable employment, and creates an equitable world that leaves no human behind.
We all play a vital role in creating positive change in our world to keep our planet clean and beautiful for future generations. Opting for sustainable, day-to-day products such as eco-friendly toilet paper or laundry detergent can have a huge positive impact. Get behind these local startups who put our planet and people first
