When you buy stuff you don't just choose the product. You also choose the story behind it! Find awesome ethical companies that make products with great stories at FirmHugger.
Every year you buy thousands of products
They make up a large part of your life.
But there is much more to a product than what you see
Behind every product there is a story
Often a bad story
Take your basic t-shirt for example
The clothing business is one of the dirtiest industries in the world
Workers in cotton fields are often directly exposed to toxic pesticides
And most of our clothes are made in sweatshops, where underpaid workers sometimes work more than 100 hours a week
Or your cup of coffee
Coffee production can lead to severe deforestation
And is linked to child labor and modern day slavery
All products have stories
And when you buy stuff these stories are hidden from you.
But the story doesn't have to be bad
There are products with great stories out there too
Your t-shirt can be made of organic cotton, by a company that runs a school for workers' children or supports the local hospital
Your coffee can be made conserving natural forests in cooperation with local farmers
Do you know the story behind your products?
Wouldn't it be great if every time you buy something, you actually took part in something good? If you became part of the good story?
The question is: How do you find them?
Even though there are many ethical companies with great products out there
They can be very hard to find among all the products with bad stories
It's a jungle out there
