Have you signed the Shop Your Values Week Pledge?
In March, NYC-based startup ethikus launched the “Shop Your Values Week” pledge with hopes to create a city-wide movement in support of ethical and sustainable businesses in The Big Apple. Shop Your Values Week, will connect thousands of conscientious consumers with 200+ ethical and sustainable businesses in the five boroughs of Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island from May 3rd – 10th, 2012 by offering free samples, discounts, and special events to promote a healthier, happier NYC.
In order to participate, individuals will sign an online pledge at ShopYourValues.com to support businesses that ‘do good’ with their everyday practices. By signing the pledge, participants agree to the following:
- Pledge to shop locally, ethically, & sustainably from May 3rd – 10th in NYC.
- Receive discounts at participating stores across NYC & free admission to special events.
- Feel good about contributing to a NYC economy that they believe in.
