Vote with Your Style

There are so many instances in which I feel like I don’t have control. I mean… have you ever tried to reason with a toddler? Parenting at this stage (and who am I kidding, probably at any stage) is an exercise in learning to live without control. The world’s problems are so great and the solutions can seem so very far out of reach. But I’m here today to say that while we may not be able to solve all the problems in all the places just by the swipe of a card, we do have a profound power to affect positive change simply by the ways and places in which we choose to spend our money. Yes. I’m talking about responsible consumerism and social enterprises. We have more power than we think!

Political voting may have closed (for now), but the opportunity to affect change in our world is still here and it’s so much easier than it may seem. All you have to do is buy something! Let’s put our money where our values are this season and buy from businesses that are producing responsibly and give back generously.

Tune in via iTunes or below for my version of a holiday gift guide that will make a difference.

    Great podcast Hilary! I’m a huge proponent of voting with my wallet and it is so nice to find a holiday gift guide that fits with my values. I will be sharing this. Happy holidays!
