Growing ‘Good’ Business Faster
Being a triple bottom line business, The Rubbish Whisperer (founded by Helen Rupp) places equal value on people, profit and the planet. Selling reusable produce bags, lunch wraps and compostable drinking straws, Helen was finding growing her business and shifting people away from a disposable consumer culture slow going.
With SIFT support, Helen took part in Akina Foundation’s Elevate program which builds business capability in social enterprises. Armed with a new knowledge and strategy, The Rubbish Whisperer sales have doubled in the last 6 months, resulting in a total of 12 million plastic bags and 600,000 plastic straws being eliminated.
