As the movement toward mission-driven companies looking to do good in the world continues to grow, conscientious and creative makers are using their talents to create films, TV shows, books, toys, games and more that not only entertain us but also spread the message of doing good through enterprise.
Conscientious business films and environmental documentaries, including institute B’s Not Business As Usual, Dr. Bronner’s Journey to Serendipol and FYA.tv’s The Millennial Dream show us actual examples of businesses doing good in the world and educate future business leaders at the same time.
Business books, podcasts and newsletters — from such industry leaders such as the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, the Stanford Social Innovation Review, Seth Godin, Ashley Milne-Tyte and David Gelles — entertain and educate their audience about conscientious business practices, smart marketing methods, and how to create work environments that result in more productive, healthier and compassionate workers.
Musicians are also creating socially conscientious music about the environment, politics and more, which spreads the idea of doing good in the world to a larger audience. And it’s never been a better time for consumers wanting to buy fair trade toys and socially conscious games for themselves, their kids, friends or family members.

And of course, those of us who want to throw killer parties and entertain at home can do so in good conscience, too. Sustainable breweries, such as Certified B Corporations New Belgium Brewing and Hopworks Urban Brewery, and sustainable wineries like A to Z Wineworks and Fetzer are producing libations that are organic, made with as little waste and as little impact on the environment as possible, all while also providing job opportunities in their communities. Who wouldn’t cheers to that?
