First of all, what does it mean to be relevant? The Oxford English Dictionary defines “relevance” as “the state of being closely connected or appropriate to the matter in hand.”
Here are some examples of companies that are relevant by tackling problems in the world and helping out others by giving something back.
Wado sneakers #playgreen
Wado is a sneaker company that raised money on Kickstarter for their project #playgreen. They tackle the issue of 18.7 millions acres of forest ( 27 soccer fields ) being chopped down every minute.
To fight against this global issue, Wado plants two trees for every pair of shoes you get. Wado believes that everyone can be a gamechanger, someone who carries out small actions that contribute to a better world.
