It’s been a whole [almost] three weeks since my long-anticipated debut of galtruism. As I noted in my first post, I’ve had the real intention of starting a blog for a while, but always put it on the back-burner. I figured eventually I would do it- ‘maybe in a few days’, ‘next month when the semester is over’, or ‘after the holidays when things slow down.’ To my shameful admission, there was always an excuse. Finally, I bucked up and realized the only way to do something was, well, to do it. Although I’ve only written two posts thus far, my wheels have been turning since I published the first one. I’m currently cooking up a couple new posts but in the meantime, I would like to debut my first column, a concept called Sustainable Spotlight.
Sustainable Spotlight will highlight brands within the fashion/jewelry, health/beauty, and home/lifestyle industries that are diligently working to change the product market landscape through sustainable and eco-conscious practices. I already have a handful of unique lines I’m so excited to share with you guys! Some are changing the game by vowing to only produce their pieces in the US, while others are empowering women worldwide by solely teaming up with local artisans overseas.
Each brand that gets stage time under the galtruism spotlight possesses attributes that make them stand out amongst the crowd. Some are big, and some are small, but all are mighty and doing their part in making a difference.
Stay tuned to see who the spotlight hits first… you don’t want to miss it.
