Launched in 2011, REBBL is developing a series of tea-based tonics brewed from natural ingredients and sourced in regions of the globe that are at high-risk to human trafficking. In addition to creating dignified jobs, REBBL will invest a percentage of net profits back into Not For Sale's trafficking prevention programs in the same regions. In June 2011, Just Business secured seed funding to launch this innovative new company: building an award-winning team from the beverage industry who developed the first line of three tonic products and delivered them to market
Started in 2007, Earthware develops affordable and environmentally friendly greenhouses for organic agriculture that raise crop yields and lower water waste. Green houses are pre-manufactured from recycled steel and plastic at a factory in rural China, creating new skilled jobs in an impoverished region transitioning from agriculture to manufacturing. Just Business provided a critical investment for Earthware to complete design and production of innovative green houses for organic berry growers in California.
