Portsmouth's only B Corp sells and donates used furniture / equipment from businesses to keep them in reuse. They also donate 25% of their profits to a 'Sustainable Future Fund', which supports artisans, makers etc. to join the circular economy.
This business takes used trainers, then repairs, cleans and resells them at affordable prices. In doing so it reduces the 300 million sneakers that go to landfill every year. As the co-founder says:
‘Everybody wants to do the right thing, but they need someone to facilitate that for them."
Zero Waste Portsmouth is a group that aims to bring awareness around responsible consumption. They run workshops, and other events about how to live more sustainably, and have an active Facebook group of over 1000 members.
