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

Choose your favourite project to support when shopping

Search our directory of hyper local projects, plus national projects with ambitions to implement within every community

Explore local independent businesses

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

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.

One More Step - 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.

Welcome/Welcome back to Agora, our online and real-world gateway to all that is happening in your locality, and your invitation to participate in helping to create more caring, more inclusive, more vibrant places to live. Please add your profile. It's not essential in order to explore, but if you have decided to join, please, let's get to know each other.
Please check back often to this message as we will use it to update on our progress, ideally as a result of feedback & suggestions from the membership. This is a platform designed to facilitate collaboration & cooperation. Your contribution is highly valued & encouraged at every turn.
From within our member's area you can explore all our directories, also accessible to non-members, but here you can actively engage.
If you have something that you would like to add to a directory please enter your details as appropriate for us to upload.
Each project has an associated group, again for you to actively engage with as you decide. If it's your chosen project to support when shopping, you may decide that you want to get involved in other ways in order to help.
We are also adding discussion groups/topics of interest. You are welcome to join wherever you may be in the UK, but the aim is to share the best most positive stuff so that we can all work together to implement wherever we may be with the friends we have made locally via our shared platform.
Chrysalis is a grassroots bottom-up initiative focused on transformation in the spirit of the caterpillar to the butterfly.
