Fast Company Announces Winners of 2020 World Changing Ideas Awards

Think Dirty selected as an honorable mention for Best North American World Changing Idea

April 28, 2020 (New York) – The winners of Fast Company’s 2020 World Changing Ideas Awards were announced today, honoring the businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to flattening the curve when it comes to the climate crisis, social injustice, or economic inequality.

Think Dirty empowers consumers to take back control in the wholly unregulated cosmetic and personal care product industry. The Think Dirty App helps users decipher the complicated ingredient labels on the products they use every day. For the general consumer it is very difficult to know what the ingredients in these product are and the potential health impacts. By making it simple for consumers to check their products and by presenting healthier alternatives Think Dirty is able to help users make safer choices. We are working to ensure that consumers no longer unknowingly put their health at risk through the use of toxic products. We are delighted to have received an honorable mention for the Best North American World Changing Idea of this years awards.

Now in its fourth year, the World Changing Ideas Awards showcase 26 winners, more than 200 finalists, and more than 500 honorable mentions—with Health and Wellness, Corporate Social Responsibility, and AI and Data among the most popular categories. A panel of eminent judges selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 3,000 entries across transportation, education, food, politics, technology, and more. The 2020 awards feature entries from across the globe, from Vancouver to Singapore to Tel Aviv.

Illustrating how some of the world’s most inventive entrepreneurs and companies are addressing grave global challenges, Fast Company’s May/June issue celebrates, among others, an electric engine for airplanes that eliminates emissions from flights—and expensive fuel from the tricky financial calculus of the airline industry; a solar-powered refrigerator that finally frees people in remote villages from daily treks to distant markets, transforming the economics of those households; an online marketplace that connects food companies with farms to buy ugly and surplus produce to fight waste; and an initiative to offset all of the carbon costs of shipping, creating a new model for e-commerce sustainability.
