22. Bronte Hogarth, Raise the Bar

Bronte Hogarth is the founder of Raise The Bar, a social enterprise which transforms spent coffee grounds from local cafés into coffee scrub bars with zero waste packaging.In this episode, you’ll hear how Bronte’s eco-entrepreneur upbringing and desire to lead a zero waste lifestyle, promoted her to step-change from a career in digital marketing to start her own waste upcycling skincare business. Her goal is to help reduce the 100,000 tonnes of wasted coffee grounds that are going into landfill each year. After developing early product recipes at home, Bronte successfully ran a crowd-funding campaign to fund the shift out of her kitchen and into external manufacturing, which has proven to be a key step for business growth.You can learn more about Raise The Bar coffee scrubs and connect with Bronte on:https://youraisethebar.comhttps://www.instagram.com/youraisethebar/https://www.facebook.com/youraisethebar/Many thanks to this episode’s sponsor, the Food Innovation Centre at Monash.Find out how they can help your business become more innovative: https://www.foodinnovationcentre.com.au
