GPS for Good Businesses
If shopping with a social conscience is a priority, then the iPhone app Social Impact will make your life a whole lot easier. Created by Rolfe Larson Associates, this free global app uses GPS to locate socially minded businesses in your area.
Enterprises are browsable by location or category - such as Restaurants or Arts and Crafts. Each individual listing provides a description of the business, its mission and other useful information such as opening hours, telephone number, directions to the store and a link to the website. If you can’t find what you are looking for locally, Social Impact also has an app feature that allows users to shop online.
The newly launched app is steadily growing its database of responsible retailers and has recently compiled a Social Enterprise Shopping Guide accessible online. [Source: Social Impact]
