Sustainable living e-commerce marketplace The Clean Collective is raising capital using equity crowdfunding, giving you the opportunity to own a piece of this fast-growing conscious business.
The plan is to build an app that will act as your sustainable shopping assistant, and a personal development platform to guide your journey to a healthier, more eco-friendly lifestyle, assisted by some of the biggest names in wellness and sustainability.
In less than two years, they’ve become the fastest-growing marketplace in the region for sustainable purchases and created the strictest standard for safe and sustainable consumption in Australia.
What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding is a new way to invest that enables anyone over the age of 18 to fund early-stage companies in return for equity. It helps companies like The Clean Collective access the capital they require to grow while giving you the opportunity to invest in a business you’re passionate about.
Because the issues The Clean Collective is tackling affect everyone, the team is keen for their community to join them on this journey, investing in the company, the future of the planet, and the future of humanity together.
“We’re so proud of what we have achieved with our customers, partners, and supporters in just 20 months (thank you!). We’ve seen an opportunity to drive a much bigger impact for people and the planet and we need investment to achieve it. The Clean Collective has never been ours – it’s yours. You give it energy. You give it a voice. You drive its mission forward. This is your invitation to join the team, join the cause and give our collective mission a boost that will drive seriously positive outcomes for human and environmental wellness. Are you with us?” – The Clean Collective co-founder Charlie Thompson
"Our mindless consumption is killing us and our planet. The scientific data confirms we’re at crisis point."
