A Groupon-like Business Focused on Doing Good

Posted by Luke on July 19, 2010

A startup called Bolder just launched a Groupon-like site that encourages people to do something positive.  Every few days there’s a new challenge that offers rewards for doing things like buying local, riding your bike instead of driving, or picking up a piece of litter.  Sponsoring businesses offer discounts on products for people who participate in the Bolder challenge.  Checkout this article for more info, or the company’s website at www.actbolder.com.

    picking up litter is great!

    challenging people to write their grocery store and request they stop handing out plastic bags – now that’s bold!

    what other bold challenges that will make big changes is actbolder coming up with?
