We’re excited to introduce a new series for the blog! Each month, our Strategic Sustainable Solutions team will pull together a list of what we have discovered and loved related to sustainability and wellness. Our Fave Finds segment is meant to be a collection of interesting reads, products, films, apps, or podcasts that highlights the role of sustainability and wellness in our everyday lives. Below, find the July round-up of our favourite finds.
The Good Trade
The Good Trade delivers a short, 30-second daily newsletter to your inbox with recommendations for conscious living. The newsletter, the Daily Good, aims to inspire women with unique content about conscious fashion, food, travel, wellness, and lifestyles. What we love most about the Daily Good is how they give equal focus to environmental sustainability and other less-covered topics, such as financial sustainability and sustaining interpersonal relationships.
DoneGood Browser Plug-In
Despite the well-known consequences of fast fashion, such as high resource use and forced labour, fast fashion retailers can often become the default option since they are easy to shop from. On the other hand, sustainable and ethical businesses oftentimes lack visibility and have a smaller presence. The DoneGood Browser Plug-In makes it quick, easy, and affordable to shop consciously via Google, Amazon, or big-name retailers. DoneGood examines where items are sourced and how it impacts consumers and workers, placing quality and fairness over profit. The plug-in, compatible with Chrome, allows you to shop as you normally do, and notifies you of DoneGood Approved brands that you can feel good about supporting. The DoneGood Shop aggregates all their approved products, from gifts and household items to men’s and women’s clothing.
The Good Fish Guide
Although pescatarian diets are known to be a more climate-friendly alternative to a traditional diet heavy with red meats and dairy, the Good Fish Guide takes it further by showing consumers which fish species you should eat over others if you were looking for sustainable seafood. Fish are ranked from the most sustainable (green rating) to the least sustainable (red rating) so that you can dine at restaurants and grocery shop with a quick guide to refer to.
