GbBIS looks at an upstart ecommerce business that is helping consumers go green (and the creator of the business is only a college freshman!)
Check in next week to see which businesses we will be highlighting in our series
Ryan Tilton, a freshman at Seattle Pacific University, is one of the creative minds behind CarbonCart, an environmentally friendly online shopping business. Tilton is a self proclaimed “serial entrepreneur” and his ecommerce business recently placed second in the U.S. finals of Microsoft’s Imagine Cup.
More than 200,000 students from around the world participated in this global student technology competition that focuses on finding solutions to real-world issues. Tilton and three other eco-savvy SPU entrepreneurs—freshman Reed Probus, junior Kevin McFarland, and freshman Laura Hanes—competed in Los Angeles during the U.S. finals.
While businesses care about their employees and about their customers, not as many as you’d think truly care about the environment. CarbonCart is an ecommerce site dedicated to neutralizing carbon emissions by supporting projects from reforestation to solar powered energy. With an international title under their belt, Tilton and his team have proved that there is a market out there for businesses that care about the environment.
