A SOCIAL enterprise is crowdfunding for an electric bike to “deliver good” across the city.

Good City Circle is looking for £4,150 to buy a cargo bike capable of traversing Brighton and Hove’s hills to “deliver positive impact” to people’s doors.

The initiative, started by Nick Milne and Stephanie Schafrath, will deliver things such as “teas empowering refugees” to face scrubs made from leftover coffee.

Nick Milne, social entrepreneur and founder of Good City Circle, said: “I believe we can transform the way we consume into a powerful force for good.

“There are many products and services prioritising people and the planet but it can be challenging to find them all in one place. And that’s why we started Good City Circle - to make it easier for people to do good through their purchases.”

The founders of the social enterprise need to raise funds to purchase an electric cargo bike, which will be “fundamental to the start-up’s operations due to the hilly nature of the city”.

Set to launch in autumn 2020, Good City Circle is a new subscription-based platform offering people one place to shop for products and services doing good.

Mr Milne added: “We chose to launch in Brighton as it’s a place known for its progressive and caring population, but inequality still exists, so we’ll be putting our money where our mission is and 50 percent of our profits will be donated to five local initiatives chosen by our members, each year.”

A normal cargo bike will “not easily get you up the hills of Hanover”, the company says, and vehicles emit too much pollution.

Founders Mr Milne and Ms Schafrath met working at a charity empowering African farmers to build incomes and sustain natural resources.

They have over 15 years of experience working on social and environmental projects.

The company will curate products and services who are doing good within the community.

People can then sign up to become a member to browse services and initiatives – placing orders for delivery.

Those products will then be delivered by staff, which the company says are people who face extra challenges finding work, such as refugees.

The company says it will be investing 50 per cent of its profits into initiatives – chosen by the community – in the local Brighton and Hove neighbourhood.

A spokesman for Good City Circle said: “You may want to have a softer impact on the environment with your everyday purchases, buy quality products from organisations solving social problems and/or connect with positive local initiatives, but it is difficult to find products and services doing all of this in one place.

“We exist to make it easier for our members to find everything good in one space.

“We are curating products from a range of award-winning social enterprises and circular economy organisations, and positive local initiatives.

“We will also showcase leading services, from ethical banks to food banks.

“And operate a membership focused on community, where your feedback shapes our products, services and initiatives.”
