Social Impact

By Rolfe Larson Associates, LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

This app uses the GPS feature in your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to display nearby retail social enterprises and green businesses anywhere in the world. You can also visit us on the web at www.SocialImpactApp.com.

We include restaurants, coffee shops, catering services, bakeries, ice cream stores, artisan stores, and many B2B companies. (Thrift stores are currently not included.)

What's a social enterprise?

It's a business whose primary purpose is to serve the common good. That purpose might include training and employing homeless or low-income individuals or by paying a "fair trade" price to artisans from the developing world. It could be a "green" restaurant, a triple bottom line company, or a nonprofit venture.

Customer Reviews

Advertisement for Bank of America

The first thing you see when you open the app is Social Impact's logo. The second is an ad for Bank of America. I had assumed this app would be promoting positive social impact, not a law-breaking societal parasite. Shameful irony.
