I would love to win the Peoples Award 2019 in memory of my beloved mother who returned to her maker after a 4 year struggle with breast cancer and dedicate it to all the fairtrade producers I support.

Sadly, the Peoples' Choice Award was suspended.

Many thanks to Sian Conway and Jo Salter for their dedication and tireless work to make the Be The Change Awards successful.

 

I was awarded 'Finalist Changemaker' at the award ceremony.

Be The Change Awards 2019

With Ethical Hour

The Be The Change Awards are an up and coming new initiative for the social impact sector, recognising ethical & sustainable brands with a powerful impact story to tell.

Around the world independent, ethical & sustainable brands are having a positive impact on communities, people and the planet. We want to recognise, celebrate and raise the profile of those brands who are working towards the Sustainable Development Goals and creating positive impact in inspiring and world-changing ways.

The first ever Be The Change Awards in 2019 will bring together ethical & sustainable brands across 12 sectors from fashion to business services, who have a powerful impact story to tell.

Entries for 2019 are now closed.
