Who Gives A Crap | Tim Baxter on using a profit-for-purpose model to tackle global sanitation

One Wild Ride

When Who Gives A Crap learnt that 2.3 billion people across the world didn’t have access to a toilet, which led to around 289,000 children’s deaths each year from diarrhoeal diseases - they decided to do something about it.  Through their profit-for-purpose model they sell loo paper, paper towel and tissues, and donate a whopping 50% of their profits to help build toilets in less developed countries. To date they’ve donated 1.8 million dollars to charity, not to mention saved an awful lot of trees, water and energy during their environmentally friendly production and supply model. We sat down with Growth Marketing Manager Tim Baxter to discover how this little Aussie wonder has grown from it’s crowdfunded routes to a growing global empire that is purpose-built for change. https://onewildride.co/podcast/2019/17/tim-baxter-who-gives-a-crap

Councillor Tim Baxter — "Combating Climate Change through Local Government"


Episode 3 sees Mark Spencer go one-on-one with Councillor Tim Baxter of Melbourne’s Port Phillip Council. Tim’s passion for the environment and determination to drive through essential policies designed to mitigate against climate change is obvious in this free-wheeling and fascinating chat. He discusses what Council’s role is in implementing green policies and how important feedback from the community is for councillors. There’s a great deal here too for local democracy enthusiasts as Tim launches into some fascinating topics in the latest developments in direct democracy. He outlines the baby steps many councils are taking to give more power back to the people as well as how online technology is shaping local government accountability. As Tim says in the interview, he’s not the only one with progressive views on the Council and he discusses the fact that local government is often at the forefront of the battle against climate change. Indeed, if you’re a resident of the council’s boundaries and would like to have your say on the latest draft proposal, check out the link below. Otherwise, sit back back and enjoy the show. As Mark says: “... it’s fair to say we’re a pair of geeky democracy, technology and environment fans, and we had a lot of fun chatting.” Credits: Caleb Fidecaro — Producer Rich Bowden — Co-Founder Mark Spencer — Co-Founder Abigail Hawkins — Designer Greg Grassi — ComposerSpecial Guest: Tim Baxter.Support ClimacticLinks:A Sustainable Future | Have Your Say at Port Phillip — The draft sustainability plan for Port Phillip Council.Commissioner Tim Baxter - FacebookTim Baxter (@BaxterTim) | TwitterTim Baxter | Australian GreensPort Phillip Council tells Victorian Government to catch up on plastic bag ban | LeaderJewish councillor shaken after 30 pieces of silver left on desk during public meeting | LeaderYour Councillors | Australian GreensSupport the show: https://www.climactic.fm/p/support-the-collective/
