Innovative

Many of today’s makers and creatives are putting out products that offer innovative solutions to the problems they encounter in their local communities as well as in our shared global community. Whether it be through how the product is made or the impact of the product’s use, brilliant minds are putting out sustainable, durable, forward-thinking innovations.

Upcycling — the art of creating a new product from recycled materials — is a way many producers are creatively eliminating waste. While streamlining product creation to minimize the waste output is valuable, modern throw-away culture is accumulating waste on an unprecedented and ever-growing scale. Innovative manufacturers and artists are finding ways to turn these products and materials otherwise destined for the landfill into new, usable products. For example, the skateboard company Bureo uses recycled fishing nets collected from the Chilean coast to craft their boards.

A cultural shift is underway as consumers seek out more socially responsible companies when choosing which products to buy. In order to address this growing market, several innovators have created entirely new ethical marketplaces. These hubs allow consumers to choose from among companies that share their values, as determined by the ethical marketplace’s standards. One example is the directory of Certified B Corporations, which allows consumers and business owners to find products or potential supply-chain partners that have had their company’s positive impact verified by the nonprofit B Lab via the B Impact Assessment.
