Chloe Ostiguy and Melissa Meltzer March 26, 2021
A company cannot survive without the financial support of the everyday consumer.  When feeling powerless in one’s ability to make an impact it is important to remember that we enact change by deciding what we support financially and that it is the middle class that drives the market, not the top 1% on their own.
