Doogie Goodstuff, the face of Social Enterprise in Edinburgh
Doogie Goodstuff became brand ambassador for Buy the Good Stuff in 2014 and first appeared at the time of the first Social Enterprise Festival “Social in the Gardens” in St Andrews Square that year. Doogie was such a success at the 2014 event that in 2015 he came alive “in the fur” and has since spawned a family of five monstrous relatives each focussing on and promoting a particular theme or sector within Social Enterprise.
Doogies relatives include: Bridie – Pablo – Create the Good Stuff; Bridie – Eat the Good Stuff; Rose – Reuse the Good Stuff; Elsie – Live the Good Stuff and Eric – Play the Good Stuff.
