Profile

Sustainable Genius is a community interest company that has created an online marketplace called SGMart. The name ‘SGMart’ was coined from sustainable genius marketplace, created to promote sustainability mission and the re-using of good quality household items. Our mission is to encourage and engage members of the public to join the re-use revolution, enabling them to buy, sell, support local charities and merchants around their local community. The UK statistics on waste in 2018 showed that the UK had a total waste from household generation at 26.4 million tonnes. Scotland generated 2.29 million tonnes of household waste, from which 981 thousand tonnes were recycled, leaving out a larger portion (more than 1.3 million tonnes) to be either incinerated or sent for landfill. ( Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs 2020). We believe the more we re-use the lesser we dispose quality household items that could be thrown as landfills. This would enable us to impact positively to tackle climate change and promote sustainable economic growth because less energy would be required in the manufacturing of products, using recyclable raw materials, lesser materials would be incinerated to reduce further carbon emissions and landfill waste. SGMart is committed to helping people to buy and sell affordable items in their comfort zone to make positive social impacts. Visit our online store at https://sgmart.co.uk/shop/
