The nu wardrobe
The nu wardrobe is an online platform for members to share clothes in their local area.
It was originally was started by a group of women in Dublin with wardrobes full of beautiful clothes that they rarely wore. With so many in the same boat, they thought ‘why not share, rather than buying brand new pieces all the time?’
Fashion is a highly polluting industry so not only is sharing an easy and affordable way to extend your style, it’s also one of the best ways to extend the life-cycle of clothes and reduce garment waste.
You can join The Nu Community and start sharing at www.thenuwardrobe.com
Bethnal Green ventures
At Bethnal Green Ventures we help talented teams launch and scale tech for good ventures that will significantly improve millions of lives.
At the heart of what we do is the belief that technology has the potential to transform the way we approach solving the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges.
There are significant problems in healthcare, education, sustainability and democracy and we want to support better ways of addressing those problems. Better solutions are a good thing for humanity, and a huge economic opportunity too. Technology allows for radically different approaches to social and environmental problems; which are able to scale their reach faster and with declining unit cost, enabling more social and environmental impact.
What3words provides a precise and incredibly simple way to talk about location. We have divided the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares and assigned each one a unique 3 word address.
Better addressing can enhance customer experience, deliver business efficiency, drive growth and support social and economic development.
