What if socks could change the world?
In our previous blogs we’ve talked a lot about United Nations and their Sustainable Development Goals which are 17 global issues that the United Nations wish to tackle over the next 15 years. Issues such as climate change, poverty and gender equality.
Stand4 Socks came up with a simple method to help tackle these issues that the United Nations put forward and that was with the creation of socks with a cause. Every sock you purchase having a different impact across the world that targets 12/17 of the UN goals.
However, we are just one of the many social enterprises around the world with the idea to help tackle the Sustainable Development Goals and this blog is going to show you some of the other creative ways people are getting involved and helping out around the world.
Give Me Tap!
This company’s dream is to provide everyone across the world with clean and safe water. Founder Edwin Broni-Mensah, came up with the idea of producing water bottles with a serious impact: one bottle = 5 years safe water across countries such as Ghana, Malawi and Namibia.
Coming in a variety of colours and sizes these bottles have turned something that is a daily necessity to us, into something that is genuinely having a massive impact, so far having helped the lives of 16,199 people by providing them with clean water - tackling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 6!
Bottle prices start from £12. Want to learn more about Give Me Tap? https://www.givemetap.co.uk
