Emily Hodgson and Emilie Riis love sneakers, or trainers, as they’re known in London, but were frustrated by the fact that many of the coolest designs are made in men’s sizes only. So they decided to do something about it, launching Purple Unicorn Planet, a fantasy shop created to inspire Nike to make trainers for men available in women’s sizes, too.


As Riis told Fast Company: “Trainers are unisex shoes and have been for awhile. But it seems we are still stuck in an outdated view on what kinds girls and boys, respectively, should wear. Girls don’t just want pink, purple, or banana yellow trainers.”

I’ve been working in the social impact space for the past few years, and I’m often contacted by designers that want to understand what it takes to get into the space. There’s been a serious lack of resources to point them toward—until now. The Social Good Guides are a series of 20+ small-business guides created to support early stage social entrepreneurs, nonprofit founders and individuals working on social impact projects. The goal of the guides is to centralize general knowledge and equip change-makers with the essential skills a founder needs to be familiar with in order to achieve success during their startup year.
