What role does values, passion and social change play in developing your business? What are the risks? Lunapads is a unique Vancouver business that has pursued philanthropic and social entrepreneurship alongside marketing its unusual products: reusable alternatives to disposable feminine pads and tampons.
On a recent trip to Uganda the Lunagals learned first-hand about the challenges facing girls and women in developing nations, and how leading-edge social enterprises are using market-driven approaches to change their futures.
