Grassroots mission: The journey to sustainability
Where did it come from? More consumers are asking that question; it’s up to retail brands to respond with authentic, transparent answers about sustainable business practices they’ve adopted and the ethical sourcing processes in play. Two retail leaders will share their commitment to sustainable sourcing objectives, the value of certifications, partnerships and relationships with farmers and artisans, and the goals they’ve set for shifting the product offerings toward more organic, fair trade certified.
