Spotlighting social enterprises and businesses impacting the world.
In episode 71 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast, I speak with Dinesh Tadpalli, Founder of incrEDIBLE, on creating the first company to mass-produce edible cutlery and help alleviate waste from 100 million plastic utensils used every day in America.

Below are some tech tools, products, and platforms that can help you boost your corporate socially responsibility in fun and creative ways. 😀
