Acoustic Blinds and Curtains donates 1% of net profit each year to Effective Altruism.
Everyone wants to do good, but many ways of doing good are ineffective or actively harmful. The Effective Altruism movement arose out of a desire to make sure that attempts to do good actually work.
This led to many ideas like the following:
- When choosing what to fund or work on, we shouldn't go for what's most personal or accessible to us.
- We should focus on problems that are important, neglected, and tractable (which we can actually do something about).
- We should evaluate the work that charities do, and value transparency and good evidence.
