Where Am I?
If you mean in life in general, or your actual geo-location, sorry can’t help. If you mean this little corner of the interwebs, then let me explain.
Welcome to the Conscious Collective Co. A site dedicated to helping you become a more conscious consumer. Our team is fashionably inclined. We enjoy the finer things in life, but you know, we also like the earth and (most of) the people living on it. So we knew we had to make some changes and learn to be more responsible shoppers, so we can be less responsible everywhere else. You could call it consciousness for c*nts. Or not. You might offend people that way.
So we’ve taken what we’ve learned and we’re ready to share it. The site has three parts. The first part is our journal, here we share our musings, interviews with our favorite conscious brands, brand features and our regular fashion editorials (these are our fave). The second part is our shopping guide, here you can search for new brands to love, and search by the value that matters to you most, eco, domestically manufactured, fair trade, social impact and a special section for beauty, because leaving the house without lipstick on is like being naked for us. The last part will launch later this year and is a huge passion project: The CSR Project. This is a look at those big corporations and the good (and bad) they’re doing and how they report that to consumers – basically making mall shopping a more informed (“conscious”) process.
One thing we want to make super clear is that we’re not experts, we’ve not spent years studying sustainability, we have degrees in things like fashion, photography and err, theatre. We’re not perfect. But we’re aiming to be much better. Which is all any of us can hope for. So let’s be better together.
