We feature products we genuinely believe in. We don't receive payment to feature products here as is common practice for many blogs. Our intention is to support ethical brands, products and businesses and in turn provide our readers with a shortlist of great products that they are likely to enjoy.
OUR MOTIVATION FOR SHARING GREAT PRODUCTS, NOT RECEIVING A PAYMENT.
We do accept products and attend/participate in things we endorse. Again this is AFTER we initiate the conversation based on it being awesome not becaue the company has offered us cash for comment.
So yes, we do get to enjoy products. But, we ask our collaborators to keep it minimal when they send samples. When we go to experience things like classes or on-location businesses we always carbon off-set our travel and aim to explore the areas we travel to, finding stories, initiatives, people and products on our way.
OUR PONDER PRODUCT RATING SYSTEM.
We rate products based on three criteria:
Environmental Impact: How responsibly the products are sourced and produced?
Social impact: Are the labor standards and messaging contributing to a positive impact?
Ponderability: A word we made up for our overall enjoyment of the product.
