This week, we're talking about the power of business to be a force for good in the world. Do you know what makes that possible? YOU.
Your influence matters. You can be a voice for change. You can ask for companies to source responsibly, to pay workers fairly, to take responsibility for the whole lifecycle of their products, and to offer Renewed options. You create value for the brands you buy from so you get a say in how they do it. Now, when you multiply your influence with others who also want companies to make better, smarter, and more ethical choices, you become part of a movement. Or, in business terms, a market and markets can make big changes. Markets can move whole industries. Markets can make new rules for what is and isn't acceptable when it comes to labor rights and environmental protection.
You're already part of the movement. If you want to learn more about ways of exercising your consumer power, Good On You offers resources to help you wear the change you want to see. Head on over to learn about the 4 ways that you can use your voice. We're grateful to all of you for using your voices to help shape The Renewal Workshop journey these past few years.
