Fix the World and Make Money

Viewing Bling without the sin
A series about six entrepreneurs from around the globe building their business while tackling global challenges such as poverty, inequality and plastic pollution. Filmmakers and couple Erik Loots & Linda Vermaat share their road to success; from disillusion and despair to hope and excitement. The companies’ missions are clear, but challenging the established order is no easy task.

Remember back when sustainability was just for hippie tree huggers? Those days are over. Today, even high-end fine jewellery brands are going green. No surprise, according to founder Bernd Damme: ‘If you look carefully at the entire supply chain, it’s not that shiny.” House of Eléonore sells non-mined diamonds sourced in an ethical and transparent way. 


Festive kick-off
Ilse Kwaaitaal (scouting lead Impact Hub Amsterdam) interviews Bernd about his startup and the documentary. Filmmakers Erik & Linda show their favourite clips and behind the scene footage. After a festive toast in collaboration with Chivas the Venture you can watch the 20 minutes episode Bling without the sin.
