The Sustainable Village is a ‘social enterprise’ which helps set up microenterprise projects in developing countries for energy generation, safe water, long-distance communication, sustainable agriculture.
They organise and provide all the ‘hard technology’ for the projects, from design and engineering, to supplying parts and developing websites.
The Sustainable Village sells the products produced by the communities they help online. Products include lamps, coffee machines, green cotton shower curtains, generators and composting toilets. Be careful — most are available for delivery in developing countries only.
