The Key to Getting an A+
Whether you’re helping children in Africa or spearheading sustainability projects in your own community, the key
to really connecting with consumers is authenticity. In a
world of greenwashing and corporate cover-ups, consumers
are looking for companies that are not just doing something to make a buck, but that are also doing something to
make a difference.
Before you go into any project, it should be about reflecting your company’s true values. And more than anything,
it’s about taking action, not just talking the talk. As Gandhi
once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The organic industry is naturally positioned to be leaders of social change, and your customers are looking to you
to set the gold standard on all levels of social responsibilit y. Are you ready to change the world?
