Just over two months ago, Bright Endeavors successfully completed a crowdfunding campaign to grow their newest venture, Good Glass Chicago. Bright Endeavors is the non-profit social enterprise of New Moms. Their video feature on WTTW:11: Chicago Tonight, in conjunction with their partners Accion Chicago and its program SEED Chicago, describes how Good Glass Chicago helps to transform the lives of adolescent mothers.
Good Glass Chicago provides waste-free soy candle rentals to some of Chicago’s most reputable event venues and restaurants. With 80 Kickstarter backers, Good Glass Chicago raised enough financing to purchase an industrial dishwasher and equipment for expanding production.
With dishwasher installation nearing completion, and the full-on launch of Good Glass Chicago coming shortly, we’ll share more news in the next few weeks.
