Voiz is a social venture with a critical mission: empowering college students to accelerate the shift towards a sustainable economy (SDG 12). Today. the status quo relies on corporations to make the planet sustainable. It has failed. Even under the best of intentions, corporate progress is falling short across climate, racial justice, ocean plastics and more.
It's past time for a change.
Voiz has a theory of how college students can make change happen. We train passionate, knowledgable college students in sustainability evaluation. The students rate products ranging from earbuds to wetsuits to jewelry. and we publish the ratings for all to see. Think: thousands of students rating product sustainability, and millions of consumers reading the ratings before clicking "buy", tens of thousands of companies listening because it's worth their while. The more sustainable choices, the faster sustainability progresses.
Voiz launched last summer with thirty students from UCLA, USC, Cornell, Georgetown, UC Berkeley and others. We're growing fast: our latest cohort totaled 60 students, and we plan to expand further this summer..
