Better Planet Business

The developers have twice told me they hope to have
a link for me by midweek.
The link would allow me to watch their progress.
However, they’ve taken on lots of new business,
so this website is part of their new juggling act.

In the meantime, I’ve lined up my first three members.
You don’t have to risk being first for something new.
You can join the growing crowd.

Small businesses collaborating
to protect, support, and uplift all life
while making money for themselves

You’re a small business owner who wants to make money and be socially responsible by donating money to charities and nonprofits. But tooting your own horn tarnishes your halo, even though you’re sincere. So Better Planet Business is the answer to both of your desires. Better Planet Business can help you make more money by tooting your social responsibility horn for you.

Advertising your company’s social responsibility will reduce the halo effect of your good work. Instead, let Better Planet Business advertise your social responsibility for you.

Better Planet Business helps small businesses to first make money for themselves, then to make the planet better by sharing their income with charities and nonprofits. Each business decides what it will donate to charities/nonprofits. Buyers will see the amounts of your donations and the charity/nonprofit categories you donate to.

Better Planet Business encourages collaboration between members. The easiest way to collaborate is to share links with other Better Planet Businesses so that they support and promote each other. Local businesses in the same town/city or nearby towns/cities could agree to sell a few of each other’s products.

Each time you make a donation, email a copy of a signed receipt from the charity/nonprofit or a signed zeroed invoice. Better Planet Business will promote your business on Better Planet Business’s social media and up to 5 websites of your choice.
