Spend-Gooder Pledge

Better Spending, Better World

We’re creating the first-ever community of shoppers committed to changing the world with their everyday spending. Want to join us? Please take the pledge!

Simply look at the lifestyle products you currently buy and commit to shifting an average of $5 a week from “mass brands” to “mission brands.”

A new soap, a different coffee, a more thoughtful gift — it’s easy to shift your spending once you shift your mindset.

Not sure where to begin? That’s what we’re here for! Every week, we’ll offer original reporting, social updates, rewarding challenges, and more. You bring the heart, we’ll bring the inspiration.

Get Some Inspiration

Every week, we report on social enterprises that are making the world a better place while selling products you already use. From cooking to decorating to hitting the town, your lifestyle creates dozens of chances every week to do some good with your spending.

Social enterprises are not “charities.” They’re businesses built around a mission. When you buy from social enterprises, you’re helping to: 1) Provide jobs for marginalized communities; 2) Provide resources to nonprofit partners; or 3) Replace unfair, harmful systems with more constructive and equitable solutions.
