20 Delivery-Based Social Businesses

From Majority World Tech Incubators to Fair Trade Bouquets

— January 25, 2013 — Social Good
The delivery-based social businesses features here range from the essential to the arguably frivolous but what they all have in common is some commitment to the triple bottom line, that is, a social, economic and environmental profit is the goal.

Services such as Goodebox, the Green Polka Dot Box, Good Karma Clothing and Blissmo offer monthly and/or weekly delivery in North America of curated products whether it's food, upcycled children's apparel or cosmetics. Other delivery-based social businesses work on delivering and distributing services such as healthcare to areas with limited access to resources, in rural areas and/or isolated communities and demographics. Access is key when it comes to these organizations, their business model and method of service whether they deliver locally and/or internationally.
