Profits are a problem.
That doesn't mean people shouldn't run businesses making nice things, but we do have to put more important goals like paying good wages and making products that are actually useful ahead of the endless quest to extract profits from everything.
We believe that the best way of doing that is by foregoing profits altogether. 100% of our surplus goes to charity or a 'seed fund' for another new growth enterprise.

Diverting wealth back to ordinary people
New Growth Collective is an ethical gift shop, but the New Growth Network is a plan to network together businesses that pay their employees well and redirect profits to social causes or seed funds for even more ethical businesses. When you buy from network members, you're diverting profits away from billionaires and multinationals and towards building a better world.
