ABOUT UBUNTU COLLECTIVE
WHAT WE BUY IS A STATEMENT
At Ubuntu Collective we want to make your statement powerful. We want to help you to say, "I want the things that I buy to do more than just be bought."
I created Ubuntu Collective to help social enterprises by building a platform for social enterprises to be seen and heard. A platform where purchasing power is more powerful than ever before.
But what is a social enterprise? A social enterprise is a business which holds a social, community or environmental purpose at its core. They are available to consumers in the same way as a conventional business is but they do more with your purchase so consumers are able to help the cause which the social enterprise supports through their usual purchasing.
The word Ubuntu has no direct translation in English. It refers to a joint humanity, and a recognition that compassion and sharing can connect us to others - "I am because you are".
Ubuntu Collective is proud to be a space where we can go to celebrate and empower this connection.
