In the run-up to our latest campaign – Buy Social for a Better World – in October, we’re profiling some of our fantastic members and the amazing impact they make.

Here we’re looking at BECO., who employ people with disabilities to make vegan, eco friendly soap.

“BECO stands for Better Considered and really is change in your hands. Change from the comfort of your own home. It’s been really moving to see how many people have responded so positively to what we do. If every household in the UK put BECO. in their bathrooms we would be able to create 45,000 jobs for people with disabilities – and we think that’s something wonderful we can all work towards.”

Camilla Marcus-Dew, Co-founder BECO.

“I feel like employers might not take me on just because I have a disability even though I improved my literacy and numeracy skills when I left college and have been working at BECO. for many years.”

Trudy, Production Line staff member, joined 1988.

BECO. display the “Buy Social” badge on all their products. This proves they’re a certified social enterprise and gives consumers the confidence that their purchase goes towards bringing about a better world through genuine social or environmental impact.

BECO. are also taking part in our exciting Augmented Reality campaign! Click here to find out what this means and how you can see Sali Hughes appear on the side of the bottle to talk about social enterprise!

In October we’re running an exciting campaign to encourage consumers to buy from social enterprises, by celebrating what they do and the positive difference they make: Buy Social for a Better World. A central part of this is making sure the “Buy Social” badge is both widely recognised and used by as many social enterprises as possible.

Are you a social enterprise? Stand out, help grow the sector and attract more business with the Buy Social logo, available to all social enterprises that are certified SEUK members.
