A reminder to our conscious consumer audience: All purchases have an impact. This includes both positive impacts (like supporting a small business) and not-so-positive impacts (like the carbon emissions needed to ship a product). There is no such thing as a perfect purchase. There are, however, often better options available, and our mission is to help you find the better options that align with your values. We always encourage you to be mindful of your consumption.
