Creating Positive Impact

In the episode, recorded live over Zoom for our audience, we discuss creating positive impact. It’s an ethos that all the brands share. Whether through their manufacturing methods, charitable partners or their environmental footprint. All three founders are emphatically pro People, Planet, Purpose, the new triple bottom line. And incorporate giving initiatives and charitable partners as core aspects of their companies.The panel also discuss circularity and why it’s important, even as a young brand to consider the lifecycle of their products.

Thank you to The Maiyet Collective for bringing these amazing brands together in their current pop up and for making this live podcast recording possible. Unfortunately due to the most recent lockdown they were forced to close the South Molton Street store but we hope to see it back very soon. In the mean time you can shop via The Maiyet’s virtual marketplace.

With thanks to our guests, Karen, Rebecca and Lea. And a very special thank you to Olivia and the team at The Maiyet Collective.
