British social entrepreneur Cameron Saul is the co-founder of CO10 Leadership Award winner Bottletop, an ethical brand based between London and Brazil.
Cameron's father, Roger Saul, is the man behind British luxury fashion company Mulberry. In 2002, Cameron convinced him to back his new idea: a little bag made from rubbish in the form of upcycled bottletops. Later, Cameron’s business partner Oliver Wayman had the idea about a chainmail bag held together by crochet and they started to operate in Brazil.
The Bottletop brand funds The Bottletop Foundation, which funds education projects that tackle issues such as HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and teenage pregnancy and supports young people in Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Brazil and the UK.
Cameron Saul´s latest project is called #TogetherBand, and brings active citizens to achieve the Global Goals. Teaming up with Project Everyone, he has been working on a series of 17 short films, each one telling a story allied to the Global Goals.
