Frequently Asked Questions

  • The point is simple: We’re trying to build a community of 1 million consumers who understand that every buying decision is another chance to change the world for the better. We want to inspire those 1 million consumers to shift just $5 a week, on average, to mission-based companies — more than a quarter-billion dollars in “impact spending” every year. It’s not about spending more. It’s about spending more purposefully.

  • No, we don’t want to compete with nonprofit organizations by soliciting the same, limited pool of foundations and individual donors. Cause Consumer is a social enterprise, which means that we exist to do good in the world, but we fund that work through our own profits.

  • We write about what we care about, so we don’t accept money for any article with a Cause Consumer byline. But it does cost money to produce all those great articles, and we pay the bills through various forms of advertising and sponsorship. Any content produced under such an arrangement is clearly labeled and subject to all our normal editorial guidelines.

  • Of course! We depend on the community to help us find compelling stories. Email us at info@causeconsumer.org or better yet, tag us on Instagram @causeconsumer.

  • We’re always interested in partnering with others who have a clear social mission. For the best user experience and the best partner value, we have a limited-inventory model — it’s about fit as well as finances. If you’d like to discuss an opportunity, you can reach the publisher at info@causeconsumer.org

  • Thank you, next.

  • We believe that capitalism can be an unmatched source of good in the world, though it rarely lives up to its potential. If corporations aren’t doing the right thing, consumers don’t have to sit idly by. Government plays a role in maintaining standards like transparency, competition, and access, but consumers wield enormous power through their spending decisions. Profit drives action, and demand drives profit, so consumers are in the driver’s seat when they demand better.
