Social Good Social Good Subscriptions Businesses are providing more convenient ways for consumers to donate Implications - Subscriptions to everything from wine to fashion and home decor have become more commonplace and have laid the foundation for businesses to give back more conveniently.

Social Good Greenteractive Campaigns and innovations promoting eco living through interactivity Implications - Our ultimate goal may be to live greener lifestyles, but everyday distractions make it hard for anyone to stick to an environmental program when there's no incentive or fun to be had. As such, there has been a number of interactive campaigns and apps that encourage consumers to partake in eco-friendly activities by hooking them in with an engaging activity or reward. Providing an enjoyable interactive way to go green, these innovations ensure that consumers take on eco-friendly habits and maintain them. 7 Ideas + 71 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/160339 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Social Good Collaborative Consumption Community-sharing initiatives change the way consumers exchange Implications - Renting, sharing and exchanging has never been as collaborative as it is today. Every day, new initiatives are springing up that are aimed at connecting community members and helping them consume in a way that benefits the community as a whole, as well as each individual person. From car- sharing services and telephone co-op systems to cohousing and more, these joint consumption efforts augment the way consumers interact with one another and contribute to the creation of a better, more collaborative and caring society. 8 Ideas + 81 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/159885 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Social Good Developmental Enterprise Businesses finding new approaches to helping at-risk youth Implications - The number of youth-run businesses is on the rise as more youth programs launch special businesses that contribute to the development of at- risk youth. According to Mentoring.org, a whopping 18 million young people, which is almost 50 percent of the population of youth consumers between 10 and 18 years old, live in situations that put them at risk of not living up to their potential. And while getting at-risk youth involved in an activity that interests them is important, giving them the right tools to manage a project or enterprise contributes to their individual growth and learning. These innovative approaches to business-building guide and support youth, helping them to develop by taking on positions that require them to act responsibly, make decisions and function as part of teams. 7 Ideas + 58 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/159884 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Social Good Social Real Estate Philanthropic housing provides comfortable living to less fortunate Implications - One of the major social business ventures we've seen of late is philanthropic real estate, in which both for-profit and non-profit businesses are trying their hand at offering or supporting low-cost housing initiatives. Some companies are creating affordable homes for low-income families while others are donating their time and money to help causes that provide homes for the poor. Whichever it is, do-good housing is becoming a cause many brands, and consumers, are getting behind. 6 Ideas + 51 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/157946 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Social Good Ethical E-tail Do-Good Virtual Marketplaces for Conscientious Online Shoppers Implications - When it comes to shopping, making an eco-friendly or socially beneficial decision isn't always easy. Many physical retailers have introduced new product categories and sections in their shops that focus on environmental or social good, but for the busy individual, getting to these specific products (when life pulls them in different directions) can be difficult. Making the consumption of ethical goods easier is the rise of online marketplaces dedicated to social causes ranging from the planet to Third World poverty. Now, conscientious consumers can shop easily and conveniently from the comfort of their own homes or mobile devices, with the assurance that their purchases are for the betterment of society. 6 Ideas + 47 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/153213 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Social Good H20 Mission Enlisting brands and consumers in the fight for clean water Implications - Consumers are becoming more aware of the clean water shortage around the world as organizations helping this cause come to the fore. Organizations like One Difference, Project Living Well and Project Migration Inc. all strive to help countries in need find sustainable clean water sources, and today's consumer is willing to pitch in a helping hand. Among the many charitable initiatives and causes to which consumers may give support, the mission for clean water is quickly becoming one of the most major causes as we step into 2012. 4 Ideas + 54 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/137054 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Marketing Felon-Produced Ads Concepting with Convicts Helps to Rehabilitate Prisoners Proving the fact that just because someone is behind bars doesn't mean they don't have good ideas, the 'Concepting with Convicts' helps to rehabilitate prisoners and build their resumes on the inside. The idea came from interns at DigitasLBi located in San Franciso, who used a pen pal system for finding inmates interested in the project. From there, they would carry out various creative briefs like any project in the ad industry. Targets would be conveyed such as improving the image of a brand, and then convicts would either be assigned as an art director or copywriter. The results were poignant and impressive. "Drive It Like You Stole It" was one tagline for Cadillac, which shows that even negative experiences in one's life can lead to a positive creative endeavor. Projects such as these are crucial to rehabilitate prisoners and set them up for a life beyond bars.

Social Good All-American Children's Shoes United Shoes of America is Making Kids' Shoes in the USA New kids shoe brand, United Shoes of America, is setting out to buck the pattern of making shoes in China by creating a line completely made in America. The brand is dedicated to creating and keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States by insisting that all the materials and components that go into making the shoes are made in America. Even the cotton that is used to make the canvas is not only made in America, but grown in America by American farmers. Consumers are more and more concerned about where their products are made and understand the negative effects that outsourcing manufacturing has had on the USA economy. A growing "made-in-America" movement is brewing with many consumers demanding and only purchasing products that are made in America. Websites and stores are popping up that are completely dedicated to selling and promoting only products that are made in America.

On announcing the tie-up, Pharrell said that denim was the perfect category to show off Bionic Yarn’s impressive eco-thread manufacturing abilities because “everyone has jeans in their closet”. This collection and the buzz it has created is testament to the fact that product popularity and eco-consciousness need not be mutually exclusive; in fact you can leverage environmentally friendly strategies to your advantage in what is a win-win for everyone: manufacturers, consumers and the planet. The Raw for the Oceans jeans are slated to hit stores August 2014. By: Rahul Kalvapalle 9 Related Examples http://www.trendhunter.com/id/232078 Copyright © TrendHunter.com.

Life-Stages War-Injected Childhood Videos Save the Children's 'Second a Day' Shows the Effect of War on Kids The 'Most Shocking Second a Day' video from Save The Children grimly illustrates the effect war has on children. The video follows a year in the life of an average girl in the UK, starting with her birthday. Initially, the happy-go-lucky child is seen snuggling with stuffed animals, laughing, smiling and playing, like any child should. These short clips flip pretty quickly and it almost gets a little repetitive, but these mundane day-to-day activities are much better to watch than the second half of the video. About 30 seconds in, the video starts to change its tone. There girl is shown covering her ears after gunshots, running from bombs, crying and being separated from her dad. As the video concludes, she is shown having another birthday, but the celebration is far less joyous. Save The Children's message illustrates that "just because it's not happening here, doesn't mean it isn't happening."

World Multicultural Metropolis Photography Multiculturalism Shines in the Cosmopolis Toronto Project Cosmopolis, “a city inhabited by people from many different countries,” is the definition of Toronto, and the Cosmopolis Toronto photodoc project is trying to drive this idea home. When you think of Canada and especially Toronto, you think multiculturalism. That is one of Canada's identities aside from hockey, beavers, polar bears and maple syrup. Colin Boyd Shafer has set out to put faces to the cosmopolis idea. The project finds people from around the world that now calls Toronto home. Colin takes two pictures. The first being a place in the city that makes them feel Canadian, and the second being an item that keeps them connected to their home country. There is also a short story about the place and the item chosen. Though the faces seen around the city are different, it is often over looked that the people living in Toronto are not all born here.

Marketing Stereotype-Slamming Shampoo Ads The New Pantene Commercial Condemns Gender Stereotypes While other television advertisements tend to fall into gender stereotypes, the new Pantene commercial condemns them. The ad features a compilation of scenes featuring men and women contrasted in the same setting. For instance, we first witness a man set against a city backdrop with a billboard that reads "Boss." While the woman, set within the same context, features a billboard that reads "Bossy." These stereotypical gender comparisons are epitomized in scenes of the man and woman working late, the man labeled as "dedicated" and the woman as "selfish." These ideas make it difficult for some women from reaching a business professional status, because there are still negative connotations attached to work-driven women, as illustrated in this ad campaign. Pantene breaks down these stereotypes by making them clear, and cleverly associating the word "shine" with its glossy shampoo.

Putting somebody in the shoes of someone else and being able to provoke such strong emotional responses is a brilliant way to raise awareness on issues that treat men and women differently.

Social Good Technology-Providing Campaigns The 'Flip Our Class' Project Seeks to Get Resources for Students The 'Flip our Class' project by Dewitt Robinson, a teacher at Andrew Jackson High School in Jacksonville, Florida, is seeking to crowd-fund a campaign using Fundly that could greatly enable his students to reach their full potential. Technology is a major aspect of learning in the 21st century and without proper resources, many students can fall behind their peers at other schools with higher levels of access. Robinson states, "the largest divide in our education system is not the achievement gap, but the ever widening digital divide. Many of my students do not have desktops, laptops, or tablets in their homes," an issue that forces many students to resort to public services that are outdated, or worse, unavailable when they need them.

Social Good One for One Blankets The Company Store Gives Comforters to Homeless Children My guess is that when you envision someone homeless, the person you picture is an adult, perhaps a teen; however, a frightening one in five children in the U.S. are currently living in poverty, and one in 15 will experience homelessness before the time they turn 18. While these stats are disturbing, there are social businesses offering targeted innovations for homelessness, including The Company Store, which offers a Buy One, Give One comforter program. For every blanket you purchase, The Company Store will donate one to a homeless child through a parternship with Family Promise. The Company Store offers a colourful array of comforters, including thick down blankets, that range in price from $24-$250.

Founder and CEO of TOMS, Blake Mycoskie, explained that the idea for TOMS Eyewear began in Nepal, which is similar to many developing countries, where most people's blindness (for instance, if it's caused by cataracts) can be easily prevented with simple technologies and preventative measures. In true TOMS fashion, it was a dramatic reveal today, accompanied by a YouTube video and a mass Twitter conversation.
