Right now: There are people, young and old, cleaning up garbage on beaches so that our oceans can thrive. People you haven't met yet have created chemical free, package free products that are diverting plastic from arriving on those beaches.

People are reimagining care for the sick and elderly. People are inventing ways to preserve our water, our wild lands and rivers. People near and far are repurposing castoffs from coffee byproducts to construction materials to reduce waste of all kinds. Someone is creating a biological alternative to petroleum.

People are reimagining access to important news stories told by those who are living them. People are offering job opportunities to the disenfranchised. People are creating ways to test drugs without using animals.

People are testing a new way of leading so that you can learn from them. People are earning a fair wage in a safe workplace that allows them to show up as they are each day. People are dedicating their time to protecting your fundamental rights and your access to nature. People are regaining their connection to their ancestors and their heritage. People are teaching those traditions to the rest of us.

Someone is genuinely moving at the speed of trust, embracing seasons of growth and rest.

Someone is reaching out for support when they feel shame, fear, despair. Someone who is lonely wished for connection–and found it.

Someone wants to invite you into a conversation on a walk or over a meal. Someone is willing to listen to your story, wants to know who you are at your core. Someone in your orbit has exactly the skills, connections, insights, or experiences that you need and wants to share them with you.

People are joining together to create the new world today.

A Better Now, A Better Inheritance

Coralus collectively practices different ways of doing things for a better now and a better inheritance. Nine years into our collective journey, we’re continuing to learn from each other about what we’re creating and making space for. We’re sunsetting, releasing, and growing beyond a model that centres finances and moving to center community, relationships, and sharing knowledge and wisdom. We’re not here to go “against the flow;” we’re looking for where the flow needs to go, making space for ancient ways of coming together in new contexts. We’re making space for our collective to be brave and take a chance on a big idea, knowing that we are with them.

We’re also finding the truth and beauty in the process of undoing and unlearning together. We’re revelling in the awe of things outside of our individual "selves" and the witnessing of the strength, courage, gifts, and moral beauty of others. Looking back on 2023, we stand in awe and deep respect for our community members. The grit, generosity, integrity, and humanity that we saw is heartening.

This report will share some data and some of those stories. While we’ve tried to include a wide range of stories here, there are dozens, maybe hundreds of stories that are shared in smaller circles of trust, moments that are preciously held between a few members of our community.

We honour those stories and connections, the ones that aren’t ours to talk about. Those sacred confidences and personal connections are the most important outcome of our collective work.

Not an Answer, but an Inquiry

This report includes data and stories from across our global community, a window into our collective journey over the course of 2023. This is going to be a lot of information, so we encourage you to dig into the sections that you feel called to learn more about.

We’re sharing with you what we’ve been noticing and what we’ve been collecting and we hope that you’ll stay curious about what you’re seeing.

We invite you to reflect on what you're reading and we would love to hear more about what this brings up for you.

A Note About the Data

Coralus by the Numbers

Made by the Collective

Members of the Coralus community are engaged, generative participants in creating a better world. The leaders of our Ventures are often following their life’s work, sensing what is needed in their communities and the world at large.

The impact of this work can be hard to measure, but using a combination of external impact measurement tools and internal tracking, Coralus Ventures are able to show some of the outcomes of their work over a year. Many of these outcomes are told as stories in the context of broad categories. Comparing the work of one venture to another doesn’t make sense in most cases; it’s not even apples to oranges, it’s more like apples to salmon. That said, our combined efforts in similar spaces can be inspiring and motivating as we look for more ways to collaborate and grow.

Many Coralus Ventures could (and do) show up in several sections of the impact report below. They may be creatively building inclusive work environments, creating plastic free products, supporting communities in times of crisis, and doing programming to educate young people all in the same year! In an effort to include stories and data from as wide a range of Ventures as possible without making this a book-length publication, we haven’t included all of the stories and data that we received or found for every category.

Doing More With Less

Reducing consumption and embracing circular economic systems has been identified as a critical action to address the global climate crisis. While about half (91) of our selected Ventures are product-based, many of them are deeply committed to reducing waste and extending the life-cycle of materials as long as possible. Circular economies require collaboration and creativity, values that are in the cellular makeup of our community.

Life on Land + Water

One person's trash

Clothes Doctor (UK 2021) partnered with FatFace to launch a repair service for their clothing to extend their lifespan, letting people wear their favourite pieces for longer and keeping more textiles out of landfills.

Re4m Design and Fabrication (CA 2023) handled 14,133 pounds of other people’s “trash” in 2023 and converted 6,658 pounds of this into new products. They also managed to recycle or compost an additional 4,408lbs of material.

6 years after Circonomy (AU 2018) opened, they’ve now diverted 4.3 million kilograms of goods from landfills, refurbishing or renewing them where needed and selling them to consumers.

I Am Grounded (AU 2022) has now diverted 30 tonnes of coffee fruit and used it to make delicious snack bars. Coffee fruit is usually thrown out as companies look for the seeds which are used to make your morning drink.

In 2023, Remark Glass (US 2022) diverted 132,000 pounds of glass from landfills, turning it into beautiful, useful, and infinitely recyclable housewares.

Better Packaging Company (NZ 2018) continues to make their Pollast!c packaging from 100% recycled Ocean Bound Plastic. This means all of their plastic has been abandoned and is within 50km of the coast in an area with no formal waste management infrastructure.


Out with Disposable, In With Reusable

Again Again (NZ 2022) replaced 29,000 single use plastic containers through their reusable container program.

City to Sea (UK 2022) replaced 11,000 single use plastic cups in their local program alone. Their refill app helps people find refill stations for products and food around the world and was used by about 14,000 people on average each month in 2023.

Dalcini Stainless (CA 2019) uses 80% recycled aluminum in the production of their food storage containers. Not only are their containers safe for long-term use (at least 20 years for one container), but they can be infinitely recycled.

Aurora Heat (CA 2022) and their very cozy hand and foot warmers have saved an estimated 30,900 single-use or battery-operated hand warmers from ending up in landfills, marking a significant reduction in waste. Their handwarmers are also biodegradable, working in harmony with the earth.

Waste Free Celebrations (NZ 2023) is replacing wrapping paper and single use gift bags with their beautiful reusable gift bags. They’ve now reached 100,000 units in circulation!


Biodegradable Materials

Plastic doesn’t decompose, biodegrade, or compost, which means that every piece of plastic ever produced is still on earth in one form or another. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that so many Coralus Ventures are working to reduce or eliminate plastic in their products. In addition to the reusable options above, biodegradable options allow us to be more conscious about our consumption.

Tampon Tribe's (US 2023) biodegradable tampons have...

Beam Paints (CA 2021) are 100% plastic free, including their packaging made from beeswax, cotton, reclaimed wood, and kraft paper.

In 2023, they...

Pleasant State’s (AU 2021) concentrated cleaning bars dissolve in water and come in compostable wrappers, allowing people to refill bottles for cleaning solution that they have at home.

Since 2021 they’ve...

Waves of Change


Ocean Legacy (CA 2022) joined the 2023 Antarctic Climate Expedition for two weeks, conducting research to sample the water for the presence of plastics. Researchers found microplastics — tiny plastic particles less than five millimetres in length — in every water sample collected. This research helps to inform the work of a number of sustainbility and ocean-focused organizations, and further emphasizes the importance of reducing the use of plastics and synthetic materials.

Sometimes to clear up our waterways and beaches, you have to get your hands dirty, and in 2023 Sea Smart (CA 2022) brought community members and young people out to clean up 2.3 million square metres of shoreline in British Columbia.

Volunteers of all ages cleaned up 348kg of garbage, 538kg of recyclable waste, and 14,247 cigarette butts, making the shoreline much more habitable for humans and wildlife!

Sea Health Products (AU 2022) secured a marine lease to start sustainably farming kelp on the coast of Australia in 2024.

So we need to look to the ocean for alternative food supply. So I'm looking at growing kelp for all the environmental benefits. And I'm also looking at growing kelp as a product to use in a sustainable way it can be used for food, it can be used for a whole range of things.

No matter where we are in the world, plastics are entering into the ocean and it’s the same kind of plastics that we’re finding all over the planet.


Clean Energy, New Sources of Power

There’s having carbon neutral operations, and then there’s being climate positive. Better Packaging Co (NZ 2018) did a full audit of their carbon emissions in 2020 and now

offsets their already low emissions by 120%!

Also in New Zealand, Chia Sisters (NZ 2018) has been certified Zero Carbon and Climate Positive by Ekos since 2019. They’ve had solar power on their factory roof since 2018, when they became New Zealand’s first solar powered juicery, and frequently generate more power than they need to operate. They now offer refilling of their glass bottles, and are working to have 50% of their sales come from customers refilling their bottles by 2025. They also send the backing from their paper labels to be used as tissue paper for shoe boxes and other packaging, which saves 0.82 tonnes of carbon from entering the atmosphere!

Other ventures are following in their footsteps! 10,000 Beekeepers (CA 2023) is working to become carbon neutral, moving to plastic free packaging in 2023 and installing solar panels on their production facility to become more energy efficient.

Toni Desrosiers of Abeego (CA 2015) invented the beeswax wrap as a sustainable (and more functional) alternative to plastic wrap and plastic bags. In 2023, they launched Abeego Mini Campfires as a way to use every last leftover scrap of fabric and beeswax to make adorable portable mini campfires, making their production process zero waste.

Go Climate Positive


Solstice Energy (US 2019) has expanded their operations, partnering with 49 new organizations to advance community solar initiatives and expanding their operations into New Mexico and New Jersey.

Subscribers saved an estimated 31,000 tons of carbon emissions by using community solar power. This amount of carbon emissions would be the same as if you drove a gas powered car around the world 4,000 times.

ImageGrengine saved 31,000 tons of carbon emissions - the equivalent of driving a gas powered car around the world 4,000 times!

Grengine (CA 2020) performed the feasibility and front end engineering work for a large project in New Brunswick on behalf of an Indigenous-woman owned business. The project when fully deployed will feature over battery energy storage paired with solar and wind energy generation. The full system is anticipated to replace 33,118MWh of grid produced electricity, which is enough to power 993 houses for a whole month!

Health and wellbeing are core values held by our community, reflected by the selection of 23 Ventures working on these priorities. From home care to online mental health care, emergency medicine to maternal health, Coralus Ventures are working to improve the well-being of people in their communities and beyond.

Health and Healing

Mental Health

Tellmi (UK 2022) has expanded their services to more regions in the United Kingdom, bringing their innovative model of moderated peer-to-peer support to more young people.

In 2023 alone, they supported 12,750 young people, 660 of whom were considering suicide.

Backpack Healthcare (US 2022) acquired She Health and Hurdle Health to expand their culturally inclusive and accessible mental health care for children and families.

Backpack Healthcare now offers therapy services in 250 languages and their Self-Care app is available in all 50 states. They continue to provide care in less than 5 days, reducing wait times and providing timely support to families.

BreeLove (CA 2023) continues to offer counselling therapy to people across Canada, with a focus on trauma and serving historically marginalized communities.

Last year, they provided 16,160 hours of counselling, and led over 50 trainings on cultural and trauma informed care to organizations and individuals working with children.

Grow Your Mind (AU 2018) recognizes that children's mental health is improved when the adults around them are better equipped to support them, so they focus on a whole-school, play-based approach to mental health education.

In 2023, they trained over 1400 educators using their suite of professional development courses. They also released a 4th season of their award-winning podcast, where student presenters interviewed mental health experts on topics like consent and anxiety.

Training the Next Generation

Generation Medics (UK 2021) launched a project with Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to support local people to succeed in health and care careers.

With an aging and growing population in the United Kingdom, the need for health care workers is increasing and the initiatives of Generation Medics will help to build capacity in communities and help people access employment.

Fitness and physical activity can be forms of preventative care that also encourage joy and fun.

StrongerU Senior Fitness (CA 2022) had 376 people enrol in their Senior Fitness Instructor Course, including Therapeutic Recreation students from colleges that are integrating the class into their curriculum. Folks who have completed this course are better equipped to either improve their employability or to start their own senior fitness business.

Willow End of Life Education (CA 2023) trained 24 new solopreneurs to provide end of life education and planning support to people.

There are now...

[After people attend Willow sessions] they, first of all, are inspired and empowered to start doing some planning and having conversations. To me, the best gift they can do is to start talking about this stuff with people in their circles: their brothers, their sisters, their families, their communities.

Gotcare (CA 2019) has expanded their care network, reaching over 100 rural and remote communities across Canada. Their focus on matching patients with caregivers who both meet their needs and share their identities is unique, something that is made possible by their extensive network of frontline workers. Gotcare provides their workers with scheduling flexibility and a true living wage, helping them to thrive in their roles and beyond.

In 2023, Gotcare provided care and support to over 750 patients and family caregivers. They also continue to offer upskilling opportunities for their home-based healthcare workers to enhance their wages by 20%.

Bellevie (UK 2022) ran a campaign in collaboration with local businesses to spread joy to some of the people that receive care at home from the award-winning Bellevie team. Bellevie’s mission to help people stay connected to their communities and continue to do things that they enjoy, even as their support needs change. Whether they were delivering bouquets of flowers, craft kits, fish and chip meals, or a special dance performance, Bellevie team members were able to share moments of delight and connection with the people they support.

BelleVie was recognized at the 2024 Home Care Awards with a total of four wins and one high commendation. Judges said: “BelleVie Care has proved itself to be a force for excellence and innovation in the home care sector."

Brood Care (CA 2023) has been hard at work to support growing families, going the extra mile for families in British Columbia. Brood’s team of doulas and careworkers has been making parents feel more supported and less alone.

Hope Spots In Times of Crisis

In moments of crisis, members of the Coralus community have jumped in to help friends and strangers. Through natural disasters and conflicts, our community members have shown their generosity, creativity, and humanity.

Sustaining Tradition, Creating The Future

Bringing traditional teachings and artforms into a contemporary context can be a way to build pride and share the beauty of Indigenous cultures. Indigenous-led Coralus Ventures are finding ways to carry their traditional knowledge and practices into their work, modelling other ways of leading, creating, and transforming.

In Nanaimo, British Columbia, Ay Lelum The Good House of Design (CA 2022) was selected to design and create site-specific areas into the design of the brand new Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The Snuneymuxw First Nation is the majority owner of the hotel, which is located on culturally significant land where the Snuneymuxw cared for the now extinct wool dogs.

The City of Nanaimo is collaborating with Ay Lelum to honour Snuneymuxw First Nation culture with three new utility covers, which “serve as a unique canvas for Snuneymuxw art”.


Our goal was to create an immersive and one-of-a-kind experience that celebrates Snuneymuxw culture and the unique history of the land on which the hotel is located. Our family of artists is honoured to share the profound connection between

art, place, and history with hotel guests.

New Zealand Fashion Week 2023 marked a move to bring Māori practices and a mindset of decolonization to the national event.

Kiri Nathan (NZ 2020) has been championing Māori designers and artists since 2008, and was selected to open New Zealand Fashion Week, making them the first Maori designer to do so. From her use of traditional Maori weaving techniques to her decision to invite Maori artists and political leaders to walk the runway, Kiri infused her show with both the history of her community and her hopes for the future.

There were 280 people that came together who were predominately Māori to bring that moment to fruition and that’s what it was. I don’t think it was a runway show, I feel like it was a moment, and it was a moment where Māori came together and actually all cultures and ages came together in that room at that time, felt connected, and that was really beautiful.


Kiri Nathan

Fashion Designer, KIRI NATHAN

Kiri Nathan has been named one of 10 finalists in New Zealander of the Year 2024. Nathan has been breaking barriers in the New Zealand fashion industry with a commitment to upholding the values of te ao Māori, while uplifting other Māori designers who follow in her footsteps.

Sacred Matriarch Creative (CA 2022) worked in close collaboration with 9 Indigenous communities to provide harm reduction, healing, and wellness programming. They also celebrated the release of s-yéwváw: Awaken, a documentary film that shares the stories of Indigenous Elders and intergenerational healing. Screenings across British Columbia have offered powerful opportunities for meaningful conversation, healing, and settler ally reconciliACTION.

Before we can have reconciliation we must have truth. And the truth our Elders carry, the stories they hold, in turn create pathways of healing, reconciling, and an invitation to lean into the messages the Earth has to share for our collective global healing.

Ethnobotanist Leigh Joseph of Skwálwen Botanicals (CA 2021) published the bestselling book Held by the Land in 2023, sharing her knowledge of North American plants and the ways they can be used for medicine and food. Accompanied by beautiful illustrations, Leigh’s guide is a meaningful extension of her ongoing work teaching land-based courses and caring for the plants in her community.

Leigh Joseph

Ethnobotanist, Skwálwen Botanicals

I was compelled to write this book for my children and for my community, and to share my voice as a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh woman in the spaces of botany, beauty, and self-care. There is very little Indigenous representation in these spaces, and it is my hope that my children, my community, and other Indigenous communities utilize this book as a helpful tool for reconnecting to culturally important plants.


Building Botanical Relationships

All Indigenous Cohort

In October 2023, Australians voted on a constitutional referendum which proposed the creation of an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to their federal government. In a significant setback to reconciliation, the country voted against the referendum, refusing to formally recognize the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in parliament. The results of this vote were announced the day before the Coralus Australia (un)Summit.

As we grieved, the Coralus community in Australia made a commitment to stand in solidarity with our Indigenous siblings and decided to select an all-Indigenous cohort of Ventures from Australia in 2024.

I so believe in Collective Power and the ability to harness resources towards driving change and that is exactly what happens with Coralus and we at Murawin are so looking forward to having an all Indigenous Australian cohort of ventures for 2024.

The Next Generation Today

Food insecurity is a rising problem in Atlantic Canada, with 22.5% of households in Newfoundland and Labrador being food insecure. While the growing season outdoors can be short, SucSeed (CA 2017) is working with schools and community groups to get vegetables growing indoors.

In 2023, SucSeed and the Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation provided hydroponic kits to all Newfoundland and Labrador English School District Schools in Labrador. These students join over 35,000 other students and 1,500 educators growing lettuce, peppers, kale and more!

Growing Food

Future of Work


Junior Chefs

Fanjoy Culinary & Wellness Centre (CA 2021) has been bringing more young people into the kitchen to learn culinary and life skills. Grade 7 and 8 students from St. Peter Catholic School learned how to use ingredients on hand to reduce food waste and built their confidence in the kitchen and beyond. This opportunity to see themselves as career chefs is exciting, but in the meantime, these students have been happy to share the meals they prepare each week with their families.


Banqer (NZ 2022) provides financial education to young people through their schools, and in 2023 they reached 150,000 students! Banqer’s commitment to making their programs accessible means that they were able to provide this programming to more than half of those students at no cost to their schools, improving equitable access to financial literacy and empowering more students with this essential life skill.

Financial Literacy

Student Climate Action

DreamRider Productions has been inspiring young people to become "Planet Protectors" and address climate change since 1998! In 2023, they brought their interactive theatrical programming to 46,794 participants, who have taken actions since the program like taking shorter showers, using their green bins, and using alternate modes of transportation.

High Tech Today

As technology continues to rapidly evolve, it’s more important than ever to support students through STEM learning.

KAI XR (US 2019) brought emerging technology like VR and AR to more than 1500 students, focusing their programming in low-to-moderate income communities.

STEM Minds (CA 2021) continues to expand the reach of their online courses, live virtual courses, and in person workshops on topics from coding to agri-tech to design thinking. As of the end of 2023, they’ve now reached 1.5 million students in the US and an additional 80,000 in Canada.

Meanwhile Brown Toy Box (US 2021) announced a new collaboration with Tech Acceleration to merge their tactile STEM toys with innovative learning technology, transforming them into online educational games in 2024.


Valuing Work, Creating Opportunities

Small businesses continue to employ the most people in all 5 Coralus regions, and many of our Ventures work hard to create employment opportunities in their communities, especially for marginalized or underemployed groups.

Leadership and Self-Determination

Nisa (NZ 2020) was on the verge of closing in the summer of 2023 when the employees there did something unexpected; 5 employees came together and launched a crowdfunding campaign to buy the business. They doubled their initial goal and resumed production and operations!

Founder Elisha Watson said she always hoped “that one day Nisa would be taken over by its staff” and now the dream is a reality!

CEO & Founder,

Five members of my team bought the business. And it's even more purpose aligned than it ever was because of those staff and refugee and migrant backgrounds, now in ownership positions.


Aurora Heat (CA 2022) used their Venture loan to move their staff from seasonal work to year-round employment. They pay a living wage and offer a safe and flexible work environment to people in their remote community of Fort Smith, NT. This blend of stability and flexibility makes it a more welcoming workplace for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.

Two thirds of the staff at Dig It Coffee (US 2023) have developmental disabilities, and not only do they serve great coffee and baked goods, but they receive on the job training and earn competitive wages. Making their training available in multiple modalities enables them to meet the diverse needs of their team members, and they continue to work to make sure that everyone who comes through their doors experiences welcoming and belonging.

Beam Paints (CA 2021) continues to grow as an employer of Indigenous women in their community of M'Chigeeng, ON. Founder Anong Beam works to create a work environment that works for her employees, including making piecework available for people who can’t attend a workspace, having a kitchen on worksite with food available no questions asked, having baby seats so they can pick people up from daycare, and allowing children in the workspace.

OneSpace (CA 2023) provides on-site child care in addition to a welcoming co-working space, providing 5,920 hours of child care to 91 kids in 2023! Their affordable childcare initiatives include sliding scale payments, half price drop in childcare, and unlimited childcare memberships. They also launched their Reach1000 campaign with 11 free coworking and networking events to reach and raise up 1000 women in business.

Leadership and Self-Determination

CPA Moms (US 2023) continues to train and support family-oriented CPAs, helping more parents to achieve financial success while prioritizing their families. They had 7 women practice owners (all mothers) open in 2023, who hired a total of 19 women accounting professionals (most mothers). The focus CPA Moms places on work life harmony and family in their training and mentorship has allowed all of these women an opportunity to work a flexible, well-paying, work from home job, where they can serve entrepreneurs while raising their children.

Chooice (NZ 2022) has become the largest community of Kiwi entrepreneurs. They support over 3000 businesses selling over 300,000 products and 90% of their platform users are women. Their platform has helped these small businesses generate over 7 million NZD in revenue, reinforcing their belief that “the best way to build a sustainable community is to support the businesses that are already there.” In December they announced a massive update to their platform for 2024, designed to make it better for shoppers and businesses alike.

Fair and Living Wages

Many Coralus Ventures have implemented living wage policies, alongside other policies to ensure that people are compensated equitably.

Beany (NZ 2018) now employs 38 people under their gender pay parity policy.

Chia Sisters (NZ 2018) pays a living wage or above to all employees, including those who work on their factory lines, and has increased their wages in line with inflation.

Remark Glass (US 2021) works to support marginalized people in entering the field of glasswork.

In 2023, they offered 13 paid internships, 7 of which have transitioned to full-time employment with the team.

Jack59 (CA 2021) has been able to maintain their current staffing levels, and has added the option for employees to join a group benefits program.

Accelerate Her Future

At 34, after experiencing the fast-paced tech industry, I've found Aurora Heat—a company that achieves impressive growth while prioritizing emotional and physical well-being. Aurora Heat recognizes that work is part of life, and makes it a positive, fulfilling, and healing experience.


I love working at Accelerate Her Future because I'm contributing to meaningful work that aligns with my personal values. I'm a deeply relational person and I love how as an organization we prioritize relationships and working on our own terms to do things differently.

What Venture Employees Are Saying

Employees at Coralus Ventures shared their experiences of working at organizations that imagine different ways of doing business.

Resource Hub

My experience at Access Trax has been profoundly fulfilling. Each task, regardless of its nature, provides me with a deep sense of purpose. Whether I'm engaging with customers at events or managing projects behind the scenes every aspect of my work resonates with significance and intent.


At previous places I’ve worked, employee wellbeing has been a secondary consideration behind productivity. At Resource Hub, employee wellbeing is considered essential to allowing a productive, and consequently a loyal team.

Coralus collectively practices different ways of doing things for a better now and a new inheritance. Members offer and access resources at their own pace, creating a self-regenerating, pay-it-forward pool of skills, connections, funds, and support then used to advance ventures and the collective doing world changing work.

Coralus has circulated nearly $19M to 190+ women- and non-binary-led ventures by distributing capital via collective decision-making. 45% of those founders are from chronically excluded racial and ethnic groups. The payback rate on its unsecured 0% interest loans is 95%. Founded in Canada in 2015, Coralus' current footprint includes the US, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
