28 Oceanic Social Innovations

From Eco Shopping Sites to B Corp Conferences

— April 26, 2014 — Social Good
These oceanic social innovations merge sea and socio-political change. Sometimes, when it comes to social entrepreneurship, it's so very necessary in order to offer a holistic approach to take into consideration something as massive as the ocean.

There are a breadth of difference oceanic social innovations in this SocialBusiness.org top list. It does seem as though fashion takes a bit of a rise here. Take United by Blue, a social business founded in 2010 that uses its sustainable mission in conjunction with offering down-to-earth organic clothing. For other of the social businesses featured here, water is but one example of the wide range of mission-related projects they put forth. That's okay, because sometimes the most creative are those social enterprises that attempt to do it all--at the risk of doing "too much."
