~ The Wise Buys Guys
Conscious Consumers is a social enterprise that’s developed a technology platform to connect concerned consumers with responsible businesses that are making a difference to the world. 
“By signing up with us, consumers have the power to make a difference, by spending money where it matters,” CEO Ben Gleisner (pictured) says. “And the businesses get insights that help inform their sustainability investments.”
Since 2016, more than 6,000 consumers have spent nearly $4 million through Conscious Consumers. The team will launch a new version here and in the UK later this year.
