What if everything you consumed had a positive impact on people, your local community and the planet?
Good City Circle’s new platform is a marketplace for products and services doing good, reinvesting 50% of our profits into initiatives (chosen by you) in the local Brighton & Hove neighbourhood.
We are looking for your support to help us buy our first electric delivery bike in Brighton & Hove so we can scale the hills and deliver products with positive impact to your door, from teas empowering refugees to face scrubs made from leftover coffee.
What are we crowdfunding for?
We want to deliver our products to the people of Brighton & Hove in the most environmentally friendly way but we have a problem. The hills!
A normal cargo bike will not easily get you up the hills of Hanover (we’ve tried...) and vehicles emit too much pollution, however, an electric cargo bike would mean:
- We can scoot up the hills and deliver products doing good to more people
- Deliver products in an environmentally friendly way with zero emissions
Helping us secure an electric cargo bike will have a lasting positive impact for people, the local community and the planet :)
Who are we?
We're a social enterprise founded by Nick and Steph. We met working at a charity empowering African farmers to build incomes and sustain natural resources and have over 15 years of experience working on social and environmental projects.
We set-up Good City Circle as a company limited by guarantee, which means we don’t have shares. We are more of an organisation that cares.
Why Good City Circle?
You may want to have a softer impact on the environment with your everyday purchases, buy quality products from organisations solving social problems and/or connect with positive local initiatives, but it is difficult to find products and services doing all of this in one place.
We exist to make it easier for our members to find everything good in one space. We are curating products from a range of award-winning social enterprises and circular economy organisations, and positive local initiatives including:
We will also showcase leading services, from ethical banks to food banks, and operate a membership focused on community, where your feedback shapes our products, services and initiatives.
How Good City Circle works:
How do I get involved?
We are launching the platform this Autumn and offering 100 people the opportunity to become our first members. Our rewards enable you to sample our fantastic products and we'll deliver them you via the electric cargo bike you helped fund!
