One of the first things we did when we started Blaze Your Trail was seek Social Enterprise accreditation with Social Traders - the Australian regulator.
We are delighted to report that we have passed the rigorous recertification process after 12 months of trading.
Blaze Your Trail meets the Social Traders Social Enterprise definition for these three reasons:
- Operates with a primary social, cultural or environmental purpose
- Derives a substantial portion of revenue from trade
- Reinvests profits towards its purpose such that public benefit outweighs private benefit
Did you know that social enterprises must make their income from trading and must distribute 50% of their profit for social good?
From well known names like Who Gives A Crap and Thank you to your local op shop - choosing to buy goods and services from businesses with a social purpose makes the world kinder and fairer.
You can learn more about social enterprises in your neighbourhood on the Social Traders website.
