The Social Venture Network Hall of Fame

December 14, 2012

SVN

The Social Venture Network celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. SVN was started, in the words of co-founder Josh Mailman, “to build a new paradigm: one in which business operates to add value to society — without compromising the well-being of future generations.” SVN helps entrepreneurs who want to build businesses that are sustainable and responsible as well as successful.

On November 13th, Fairware founders Denise Taschereau and Sarah White attended SVN’s Hall of Fame Impact Awards dinner in New York City. This event, which celebrated, in SVN’s words, “25 of the most innovative and influential leaders of the socially responsible business movement,” benefited SVN’s Bridge Project. Denise and Sarah’s feelings about the night? “We were honoured to be amongst world-changing peers, clients, and heroes, and to be a part of creating such an awesome and inspiring event.”

Among those honoured were Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben and Jerry’s, and Drew and Myra Goodman of Earthbound Farm; a number of Fairware clients were similarly honoured. Fairware is proud to be a member of SVN, and even prouder to be the source of the gorgeous awards themselves, which were made in northern California from recycled glass.
