Progress Needed - Vote with your wallet
Organized by: Rochelle Dunmore
Vote With Your Wallet is an ambitious campaign undertaken by Progress Needed to build a sustainable-resource community--imagine if you will the Amazon.com of the progressive movement. Sustainability is life. It encompasses our access to clean air and water, as well as safe and nutritious foods. If we do not make good decisions today, then future generations will be left cleaning up our messes and struggling to meet even their most basic needs.
Vote With Your Wallet will bring together eco-conscious consumers with merchants and service providers across the globe. It will enable merchants to locate business-to-business suppliers of environmentally friendly products that will ultimately afford consumers more choices at lower costs, and will expand the market share of sustainable products with the goal of moving sustainability into the mainstream, thus helping to improve the environment. We will also encourage and nurture suppliers to develop and improve products to fill consumer and business needs.
Our goals are ambitious, but we believe that with the use of technology such as online sales platform and analytics, marketing, including the use of evidenced based metrics that show increased sales, and accessibility through distributorships, coops, and internet based sales that are attainable.
We are currently seeking assistance with startup costs. To date, we have volunteered time to research and formulate a strategy to develop this program. Now we need to file for incorporation and legal protection for our ideas. Additionally, we need to hire our first employee for database entry to assist in inputting all of the information we are gathering. Do you envision a world where sustainability is the norm? Then please help us to make it a reality by contributing financially to our cause.
