In today’s episode of the Good Business Podcast I am talking with Amy Keller who is co-founder of Pure Plus+,  a startup that saves produce destined for landfill and turns it into “delicious, healthy, candy made out of the most climate impactful, nutrient dense fruits and vegetables.”

Amy knows a thing or two about candy because her family sells 2 billion world's most popular lollipops each year.

But Amy is also a 7 time ironman and ultra-marathoner and therefore health, nutrition and the environment are very important to her.

In this episode I talk to Amy about her company's way-above-the-Arctic-Circle birth story and how she and her team plan to disrupt and improve the $80 billion candy market.

Today I am talking with Varun Bhanot who is the co-founder of Unhoused.org.  Unhoused.org is a social impact startup focused on using technology to help the homeless.

Varun founded Unhoused.org after he recognised the rising problem of homelessness and wanted to use his tech skills to make an impact.

For every piece bought, one is donated to a member of the homeless community.

Today more than 100 000 items of clothing have been distributed and they have designed a new product that is the world’s first self cleaning hoodie, powered by nanotechnology.
