Chrysalis Commons Earth Mission

Our mission is to return local independent business to the heart of every community via a very simple mechanism.

When you use a business ‘Inside the Chrysalis’ that business will make a donation to a local project or good cause of your choosing.

All donations will be collated and made in a local currency (Chrysalis Coin) which can then only be spent back with member businesses.

We will be adding continuously to an ever expanding range of initiatives that will promote only independent locally anchored businesses rooted in community by building reciprocal feedback loops between their success and their support for local projects and good causes, chosen by their customers.

Our aim is to create a virtuous loop of local shoppers, supporting local businesses, funding local projects, chosen by local shoppers..

3 Simple Steps

Step 1.

Choose your favourite project to support when shopping.

Explore our directory of projects close to you and decide which one you would most like to support when shopping.

Step 2

Explore local independent businesses.

Search our business directory. Please note, you will only find local independents listed.

Step 3

Support your favourite projects simply by mindful shopping 'Inside the Chrysalis'

Be sure to mention that you wish your purchase to be 'Inside the Chrysalis' to any member business, and a nominal donation will be made to the project of your choosing.

Step 4

Supporting local independent businesses is we believe crucial to a resurgence of communities that we envisage, and your patronage of businesses ‘inside the Chrysalis’ is certainly much appreciated, but if you wish to become more pro-actively involved in your local community then we warmly invite you to join our dedicated member’s area .

The intention here is to explore and to work together to rebirth community as a commons, which might broadly be described as a shared resource, where collaboration and cooperation are the focus. The commons is an alternative, or perhaps simply a balance to our dominant competition-based capitalist system. The commons is that which belongs generally to everybody and exclusively to nobody.

If you wish to investigate further please do spend some time on our explanatory pages and the associated videos.
