Our Top 5 Social Stories for March 2019

Our Top 5 Social Stories for March 2019


I am going to try something new. Each month I will release my top five social stories of the month. These may include new social enterprises I have found, social impact news, and anything else related which I found interesting.


1. French Law is forbidding supermarket food waste, and instead unsold food is to be donated to charities. France is the first country in the world to introduce this law.


2. Climate change was debated in the House of Commons for the first time in 2 years, and only a handful of MPs turned up.


3. UK MPs are calling for producers to pay a penny for every item of clothing they produce to fund a £35bn annual recycling scheme after it was revealed only 1% of clothes are recycled.


4. Looking to travel more ethically? Vogue has released a list of 10 luxury hotels shining a spotlight on sustainability.


5. Airbnb invites charities to run social impact experiences to fundraise and are willing to waive their 20% service fee, resulting in 100% of the proceeds going to charity.
