Inspire. Encourage. Love.
As we all know from attempts to overhaul our eating habits, exercise programs, budgets, personality, etc., change is hard! That’s why it’s cool to discover new brands that allow us to easily make feel-good shopping choices and conscientious purchases. It’s possible, but quite challenging, to buy exclusively from socially-conscious brands. So, in that vein, we’d like to challenge ourselves, and you, to make a small change: to select one product that you use today and swap it out for a brand that has a bigger purpose; a brand striving to positively impact the world.
This could be a grocery swap: supporting a small, organic farmer in your community vs. buying produce or meat shipped in from overseas. Or choosing Newman’s Own Salsa vs. other brands to put your $3 to a greater good.
When picking out school supplies, what about getting a few items from Yoobi? (Spotted at Target.) They in turn donate to U.S. elementary school classrooms.
Try choosing a birthday gift for your niece, friend or sister that supports a entrepreneurs championing a cause that helps other girls. Headbands of Hope or Handcrafted Honeybee are two brands we love. =)
Please help us add to our #smallswaps list and send us your thoughts! Every small effort counts in building a better world.
We are currently researching new products and companies to debut at our Fall and Winter pop-ups. It’s so inspiring to learn about their causes and see their amazing product lines. We can’t wait to make it easier for you (and your friends!) to find socially-conscious items for everyday life and your holiday gift-lists. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates!
