Shop Like You Give a $$$$
Now, this means a lot of things. The three big pillars are choosing brands that care about the consumer, employees, and the planet. Say no to companies with unethical labor practices that aren’t accessible for everyone or lack transparency. We choose brands that are for everyone. We want clothing lines that have sizing for everyone, makeup with a shade for every skin tone, and brands that use marketing with people from all walks of life. When we choose to support brands that align with our values, we have the power to shake up the market to reflect what consumers really want.
Find ways to get involved with other people or groups committed to progress. Maybe that’s participating in online seminars, mobilizing voters in your community, volunteering, or joining a local advocacy group. Finding new opportunities to be engaged in making change is not only a great way to take your commitment further but is a chance to make friends, network, and find community.
Change it Up
Choose different lifestyle choices, make a simple product swap and unwash your feed. Switch up the things you do in your daily life – bring a reusable straw for when you pick up your daily coffee, give a zero-waste product a try, or carpool with a friend; think of the small changes you can make that will make you and the planet feel good. Follow new people on social media that will shake up your feed and give you new information to interact with. Be open to learning new things and trying out different routines; there is no one size fits all change so see what works best for you.
Make it Meaningful
Work to make your everyday actions meaningful. Make meaningful connections with people by going out of your way to help others, valuing generosity, and practicing what you preach. Be true to yourself and your values by allowing your values to drive you and your decisions. Focusing on what you are passionate about and bringing you joy helps you stay authentic to who you are and create deeper connections in your daily activities. Finding the meaning and beauty in even the smallest things can open us to a world of opportunity.
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth is
If we’re going to talk the talk, we have to walk the walk. Making changes isn’t always easy; we know that what works for you may not work for everyone. We’re all about navigating ways to live our lives more mindful and meaningfully, making change one step at a time.
