Rich founded Karmalize to help people spread good karma by supporting socially responsible businesses.

For anyone wanting to make the world a better place, imagine having an easy way to find socially responsible businesses doing something for social causes you care about, like sustainability, equality, or human rights. When you choose to buy from them, the things you were going to buy anyway, you make a difference with your life, the business owner and her employees, and the people and planet they support. Every time you do, you spread a little more good karma around for everyone!

Karmalize is an online crowdsourced directory of thousands of socially responsible businesses, searchable by social cause, suggested by people who care about making a better future.
