How to make purchases with a purpose
These days, it’s cool to be environmentally conscientious. That’s because people are finally starting to realize that caring about the earth is important and that in order to have generations of world-changers after us, the earth has to be a livable planet. That is why so many consumers are turning to eco-friendly brands for peace of mind that the products they are purchasing are working towards this greater good of sustainability and not adding to the many problems already present in this day and age.
Here at Marc Skid, we share in this mission. Our eco-friendly underwear are not only super comfy (which they totally are, if you haven’t tried a pair yet…what are you waiting for?!) but they also give back. For every pair purchased, we donate $4 to the charity associated with that color, we have 4 options so you can choose whether to Feed, Save or Cure the world! The charities are focused on providing drinkable water, reducing carbon dioxide levels, nature conservation, funding for medicine and medical care to ending hunger and undernourishment around the world.
The best part? We aren’t the only brand working to save the world and continue these important conversations, not even close. Check out these killer publications and blogs that are doing their part to promote change. Who knows, maybe you’ll find something you’ve been missing in your life.
