From Eco-Conscious Kicks to Handcrafted Sustainable Tea

By: Tiana Reid - Jun 22, 2013
From chic eco-conscious kicks to handcrafted sustainable tea, these social businesses in China work sometimes exclusively in China, say, Shanghai, and other times work in multiple countries but also work somewhere in China. Some are based in China and others in other places but do some work there whether it's through a service or a product model.

China is often cited as a competitor to the United States when it comes to economy. Social Earth recently published an article on the rise of social entrepreneurship in China, as it is not considered as prominent as it is in the U.S. and certainly not as prominent as it is in the United Kingdom. As such, these social businesses in China are often spouted as the future.
