You Have the Power to Make Meaningful Change: Conscious Consumerism
Happy Thursday Changewear Family!
As individuals we sometimes feel powerless to make meaningful change in our world. But the truth is...the power is always in your hands!
As we wrap up our January focus on transparency, impact, and conscious business practices, we wanted to share a little more about what conscious consumerism and business really mean and empower you to make meaningful change in your community.
Here is a message from our founder, Michelle Judson....
A Message From Michelle:
When we look at the wider world (especially when we travel and witness the vastness of it), we often feel small and insignificant. It is easy to feel like no matter what we do, we can't influence the change we hope to.
This simply isn't the case. And the concepts of conscious consumerism and business prove my point.
Business and life is all about choice. The choices we make influence more than we could ever imagine. This is exactly what I mean by conscious consumerism. When we choose to spend our money to buy a product or service, we are giving that business our stamp of approval. We are shifting our wealth in that direction and encouraging that business to continue growing and creating influence of their own.
This is why it is so important to know as much as possible about the businesses we are investing in and where our money is going...to be conscious of our power in the economic system.
By investing in brands that respect our individual values and hopes for the world, we can grow in positive ways. At Changewear, this is one of our core values. We hope to be conscious not only as consumers but also as a business.
We respect the values of our customers (our family, we like to call them!) and we hope to offer transparency so that our customers will know that their purchasing power is creating the impact they desire.
That is also how I went about choosing our factory partner, our distribution channels, and the materials we use to create our products. Our goal is to support women to recognize their power and beauty as they are...and we hope our conscious business practices reflect that in every way.
Thank you for trusting us to make meaningful impact right along with you.
-Michelle, Founder & CEO
