I used to own a business called the Natural Painting People, we specialised in house and commercial painting using only eco-friendly non toxic paints. When the time came to do something different I gave the business (the IP, tools and equipment, and my knowledge) to a fantastic social enterprise hub. They bought my truck and then spent some time developing the model and making sure they had the right legal structure. They have re-branded the business as the Non Toxic Painting People and are launching now! Check them out and help spread the word about another social enterprise doing great things.
