We love what we’re doing at Adaptavate and we know the positive social and environmental impact we can have, but it’s still nice to be told so every once in a while. This month we’re chuffed to bits to feature in Fat Lama’s top 10 Green Business Ideas alongside great companies like Bio-Bean, Grow Bristol and Impossible Foods.
Who are Fat Lama? I hear you say. Well click here to find out more about their groovy online sharing platform dubbed the ‘AirBnB for stuff’. One of their many benefits is that by opting to borrow, not buy, we can put the brakes on unnecessary mass-manufacturing and carbon intensive distribution systems.
Like all these companies, Adaptavate is a business founded to do good in the knowledge that our industries can work in more efficient and more sustainable ways and it’s great to see some of the really interesting and exciting work being done in the fields of sustainability, health, wellbeing and empowerment. We were thrilled to feature alongside these international brands and will be watching them as they grow and flourish.
