From Holistic Farming Companies to Altruistic Pet Beds

 - Jan 25, 2013
Some of the animal-minded social enterprises here, like Coombe Farm for instance, use animals as the source of creating their products but others, such as Better Buddies, offer products for the animals themselves, like organic pet food and/or environmentally friendly pet beds.

Animal-minded social enterprises often meld both social and environmental goals, while also keeping economic profit in mind to value the triple bottom line in its totalities. Jamie's Farm in Bath, Somerset, United Kingdom is an example of alternative therapy that works with teachers to select students who go to a camp-like retreat and work closely with the farm animals. Typically, the students are those who are struggling in some way but the selection process also considers merit.
