As a society, it is imperative that we know where our favorite products come from, who made them, and most importantly, WHY did they make them? Do the products you use or the food you consume support a woman farmer who operates her own business?

I'm not saying that I have a secret formula for figuring out which companies are legitimately trying to improve the Earth and her inhabitants quality of life, and which companies are bullshit. There really isn't a formula that's necessary. What I am saying, is that we need to teach each other and learn from one another, ways in which we can be the best stewards of the land and each other, regardless of where we live.
Being a part of Grow Africa is one stepping stone of many. Playing a small part in something bigger and more beautiful than I could even imagine, that is perpetuating conscientious consumerism, fills my heart to the brim.
