Socially-Aware Shopping

25 Jan

Sorry for my unexpected hiatus, everyone! I’m fine; just needed a bit of a break from blogging!

When I opened my inbox and found a link to this gem of a website, I was shaken out of my blogless stupor and inspired to tell the world all about it!

We See Beauty is a shop of products (beauty, design, print, film, and well-being) in which the sales go towards supporting cooperative development. In other words, a portion of the sales goes to the We See Beauty Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping out women-led, worker-owned organizations!

And it’s not just the business model that’s socially-aware: the products are, too. We See Beauty selects brands and artisans that produce goods that are socially responsible and in line with their vision of a cooperative movement.

Now that’s spending we can feel good about.
