Harriet Noy, founder of Hazaar is now working towards reducing carbon footprints by launching a smartphone app which will you help you shop locally. Hazaar is a zero-waste online market place and her new app will support Hazaar’s rapid expansion. Hazaar runs through a Facebook Marketplace where users can buy items online that they hand over in person, which cuts out wasteful packaging and travel miles.

Hazaar community is growing by around 2,000 members every week. Each University’s Marketplace has its own ‘Head of Hazaar’ to help organise trading, community events and encourage a love of sustainable living.

We are creating a new interconnected world for teenage entrepreneurs to network with fellow members, cultivate innovations, apply for funding, access entrepreneurship education, join local chapters, share expertise, and solve challenges, and more. We are super excited about young entrepreneurs who are applying solutions to real-world problems, producing thriving businesses, and pivoting the world to the future.
