Casserole Club- Winter Warmer Challenge

by: Startacus Admin ~ 9th December 2014
As we rush about our busy, busy lives on such a grim and ghastly winter’s day as this, we can be forgiven for forgetting to spare an extra thought for the older people living in our neighbourhood. For many reasons Christmas and winter generally can be a very difficult time for many older people. Cold weather and long dark evenings can leave them feeling particularly isolated at this time of...

An interview with Leestock Music Festival - From small (but very important) beginnings…

by: Startacus Admin ~ 9th May 2014
Here at Startacus, we are admittedly suckers for a little mid nineties music. Add that to our interest in writing about all things social good and startup and you can see why we thought it was about time that we sung the praises, of LeeStock, a Suffolk based music festival. The festival, now in its 7th year, has managed to combine a staple diet of Brit Pop classics, and a bigger social cause, very...

Pets4Pets - WWF gives kids free reign with their advertising

by: Startacus Admin ~ 13th January 2014
As the old adage goes (and as many a veteran news reporter will gladly tell you) never work with children or animals. But apparently the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) either didn't get the memo, or have elected to take a rather more optimistic standpoint by working with both of them together! With the tagline “Advertising thought by kids to get adults thinking” their new ‘Pets4Pets&...

The Daily Table

by: Startacus Admin ~ 26th November 2013
Now for a food startup that takes on several social and economic challenges in one foul swoop...just the way we like them! It seems that we are never done hearing or reading about the ever rising price of food and how our society has developed a wasteful attitude towards it. What’s more, we are subject to a daily onslaught of criticism about our eating habits and a near constant plea to ditc...

We like cakes. We also like pop up shops. We also love innovative ideas that address social issues. So when we heard about the The Depressed Cake Shop we were hungry to find out more (sorry). Admittedly this story has gathered a lot of press over the last couple of months, so we are not claiming any exclusives here, but the reality is that the more people that hear about it and help spread the wo...

GrowUp! Urban Farming

by: Startacus Admin ~ 22nd September 2013
GrowUp! Urban Farming... Last week we featured the innovative and inspiring 'Manchester Veg People' and we were really impressed with their local approach to fresh veg and their determination to give people the opportunity to know where their food has come from. So inspired were we in fact, that we decided to dig a little further into the public’s growing obsession with their food’s ...
