Use commerce as a force for good

This is your daily break from the hamster wheel of life...yep, put down the latte, remove your cell phone from your ear and take a deep breath...good....

When we take a moment to be present in our lives we have the ability to think. When we have the ability to think, we envelop the energy to make wise choices that count.

Believe it or not, taking a moment of zen can have a tremendous impact on conscious spending. As willing (or unwilling) participants in this time crunched culture that we exist in every day, we may not be able to do as much as we want make the planet a better place, but one way we can make a difference and make a statement is by being mindful of what the green in our wallet is going to, through and for.

We stumbled upon a new initiative called Project Good that is being created by eBay and World of Good to build the largest people positive marketplace of products from around the world.

They will be launching their socially conscious community in October to provide people with positive shopping guides.

For those of us that are too time crunched to do a lot of research on how to help people and planet with our purchases, Project Good will make conscious spending a little more seamless.

Stay tuned and sign up to be notified of their launch.
