It's being thoughtful and honest about the impact merch can make. It's reframing things so that a restorative and healing approach takes priority.
Production of merch often has unseen consequences, both on the makers that put their heart and soul into creating the things we take for granted, and the planet that so graciously gives us the resources we need. From our vantage point, this conversation isn’t happening at the scale needed to create true, positive change. We’re here to bring these conversations forward, and create a model and momentum for others to join in on.
We'll discuss how to vet suppliers, navigate the financial aspects of this shift, and how to share the positive impact this creates with your community.
