Top 50 Social Good Trends in September

From Next-Gen Leader Think Tanks to Charitable Canned Rosés

— September 28, 2019 — Social Good
From sustainability to ethical practices, the September 2019 social good list knows no bounds.

Many of these projects are centered around promoting a more inclusive and diverse environment. Examples here include Project Embrace's social media campaign that seeks to break the stigma around natural Afro hairstyles in the workplace, a digitally-aged anti-racism initative that boasts the #ItsGettingOld tag, as well as Cadbury's 'Unity Bar' that seeks to promote diversity in India.

Other projects in the September 2019 social good category place focus on sustainability. From calls to action to end shark hunting to brands that support the upkeep of national parks with proceeds from their products, this list also features our own initative as Trend Hunter embarks on a project to plant 1,000,000 trees with Trees For the Future.
