Generous Couture Charitable apparel seeks to promote social good in a modern manner Implications - With consumers often getting caught up with their hectic day-to-day lives, encouraging charitable actions that go outside their comfort zone can be difficult. In an effort to culturally expand their causes beyond certain demographics, charities are merging with more mainstream companies, such as fashion designers, to engage participants on a more approachable level. The blending of social good and fashion reflects the need to utilize more culturally relatable techniques to make a connection with consumers.

Building Benevolence Youth entrepreneurship training focuses on social change Implications - Social organizations are recognizing that to spread a message concerning social change, it's a good idea to start young. Not only do young consumers provide a springboard for making a message go viral, as we've seen in intense social media campaigns like Kony 2012, they possess the dedication and courage to develop and implement projects that tackle the social issues they believe in. Thus, the number of social business education programs for youth are on the rise, promoting social entrepreneurship among aspiring young business owners and building a foundation of social purpose in our future leaders.

Every day, new initiatives are springing up that are aimed at connecting community members and helping them consume in a way that benefits the community as a whole, as well as each individual person.

Developmental Enterprise Businesses finding new approaches to helping at-risk youth Implications - The number of youth-run businesses is on the rise as more youth programs launch special businesses that contribute to the development of at-risk youth. According to Mentoring.org, a whopping 18 million young people, which is almost 50 percent of the population of youth consumers between 10 and 18 years old, live in situations that put them at risk of not living up to their potential. And while getting at-risk youth involved in an activity that interests them is important, giving them the right tools to manage a project or enterprise contributes to their individual growth and learning. These innovative approaches to business-building guide and support youth, helping them to develop by taking on positions that require them to act responsibly, make decisions and function as part of teams.

Alterna Power Exploring different solutions to power consumption via alternative energy sources Implications - Although solar power and hydro power typically come to mind when one thinks of alternative energy sources, an increasing number of innovators are looking above and beyond. We've seen wind power become more prevalent in this regard, and lately, kinetic energy -- even energy from waste. As more consumers and brands become driven by environmental issues and goals, the exploration of new sources for fuel and energy is a natural direction in the fight for a greener world.
