"It’s no secret that Christmas, traditionally associated with goodwill and generosity, has over the years become a festival of gluttony and excess. Waste, too, is slowly creeping up: this year an estimated  £2.4billion will be spent on unwanted gifts in Britain alone. Charity gifts are on the rise as Christmas shoppers seek an alternative to what is increasingly seen as gratuitous consumerism."

Social Business is a place to find ideas, businesses and people who are creating positive social change. Our publication, network and media are dedicated to raising awareness of the social businesses in your communities.
Introduction
Socialbusiness.org and its partner groups are dedicated to raising awareness of social businesses around the world. Our dream is that everyone will choose to work for a social or environmental business in the future, and that starts first with awareness.

What is a Social Business? 
A social business is a for-profit company that is dedicated to solving a social issue. 

Social Business Principles:
1. Purpose is to solve a social issue; eradicate it. Social issues are those that relate to poverty, health, education and human rights.
2. Using business principles to create a sustainable business model.
3. Attract the best people and make it a great place to work.
4. Do all of this while making the world a better place.

Online Publication 
The Social Business ideas section is a crowdsourced publication that raises awareness for the businesses, institutions and agencies that are tackling the social issues in your communities. 

In partnership with Trend Hunter, the largest online site for trends, you will find articles, interviews and the latest news on social businesses. By signing up for our monthly newsletter, you will be kept up to date with the latest innovations and ideas in this rapidly growing area. You can also follow us on Twitter, and 'Like' us on Facebook, in order to receive the latest updates.
