Talk 7: How social trading can bring in income whilst bringing about change
The Big Issue's recent innovation has been The Big Issue Shop which not only brings in income for The Big Issue it also creates a ‘social echo’ with every purchase - every product on the shop puts people and the planet first. Initially to get the ball rolling and the idea across, they actually produced their own range of products! These are now being joined by many other like-minded products from outside suppliers.
