The Mindful Collective

Not-for-profit organisation The Mindful Collection work with businesses to ensure they are ethically aware, socially and environmentally sustainable. They do this by working closely with organisations and by enabling businesses to obtain their "Mindful Index Score", an independent and objective rating of a business' purpose, people, processes and more.

Global Bay were contacted at the outset of the project to help the founders of the Mindful Collective bring to life what they had set out in thorough detail during their planning sessions. With a brand already created, The Mindful Collective had clear guidelines to work to and very precise instructions around the imagery to be used. The site would be populated with articles, and allow people to sign up on one of three subscriber levels, the highest of which would allow the user to upload their own articles to the site.


Global Bay rose to the challenge and created mindfulcollective.net, an easy to use news and subscription site with a full membership backend built in.

Users can browse topics on the four quadrants of the Mindful Collective's ethos - Purpose, People, Process and Profit - and then sign up as either a subscriber, a member or a partner, with each level giving varying perks and differing access to the site's functionality.


After a few months of being launched, the Mindful Collective contacted Global Bay again to seek their assistance in building a tool which would help businesses obtain their own "Mindful Index Rating". And so, The Mindful Index plugin was custom built for this exact purpose and uploaded to their main site.
