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.

Launching a Movement

Our goal is 1 million pledges, but the first 10,000 will be the toughest. We’re looking for the visionaries, the influencers, the early adopters. Are you one of them?

Remember, you’re not committing to pay Cause Consumer a dime. We’re here to introduce you to the brands that are making a positive difference. When you find the right combination of product + cause, you can buy directly from that company, helping to advance their social mission.

Still have questions? Check out our article on 5 Reasons to Take the Spend-Gooder Pledge.

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.
