Running an activist business
I think an activist business is a great way to use your skills to change the world for the better.
Although it has its challenges, like every other business, as an entrepreneur, I find that managing time is one the most complicated part of keeping a business running that relies on me.
After successfully kicking off, I realised that I need to bring people on board who could help me grow my business and our impact.
Currently, I’m looking for board members who have the wisdom and will to turn the tide on plastic in the toy industry while making it work as an enterprise.
I run an activist business to offer better alternatives and encourage parents and suppliers to choose sustainably and become more conscious about the consequences of their choices.
My vision is not to build an empire but to solve a problem with a business solution.
On the other hand, the reward is when you have moments to experience the willingness to take the extra effort to change.
The other week we received a handwritten envelope and note in the post. Inside was a clipping from a newspaper of an article about our plantable experience gift cards.
The message said "4 cards please" with an address and a €20 note to cover the cost.
It was a lovely flashback to simpler times, and we very joyfully fulfilled that order."
