Startup of the Week – DoGoodBuyUs
If you’re the type of person who thinks carefully about where you spend your hard earned cash; who prefers ethical shopping to anything that the large corporates tend to sell, then this week’s Startup of the Week is for you.
The aptly named DoGoodBuyUs is a new online marketplace of charity made products.
All of the products featured on the site are linked directly to leading charities and worthwhile causes. The causes supported cover areas as diverse as animals, arts and culture, education, the environment and health.
The range of products sold is pretty diverse too – everything from clothing and accessories through to homewares and foodstuffs.
With every product sold at least 50% of the money goes towards the cause.
In essence the ethos behind this marketplace is that everything that is offered is good for you and if you purchase, you are in turn doing good for others. A win-win situation, if you like.

We all know that there are lots of retailers and sites out there who actively promote “good” and ethical causes; however where this site excels is in the fact that it brings them all together, thereby making choices and shopping much easier. Shopping and helping others at the same time? What’s not to love!
