Believe it or not, while the Peace Corp is amazing, you don’t have to join to make a positive impact on the world.
You can make a huge impact with tiny choices you make in your home and in your every day life.
Some words you’ll see us use a lot are: Fair Trade, sustainable, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, etc. For more information on MAD Market values, check out our About Us page.
Our tips and ideas for MAD Living will revolve around these principles, and more simply, will take these three things into consideration:
People (Fair Trade, ethically made, etc.)
Planet (eco-friendly, sustainably made, etc.)
Animals (cruelty-free, vegan, etc.)
For years, I never considered where the products I purchased came from. I made choices based on reviews, recommendations, or sometimes, purely convenience. But as I began to dig deeper into some of the mainstream companies, I was shocked to learn about their practices, from pollution to corruption to human exploitation. Once my eyes were opened, I couldn’t go back to a life of blind convenience. I needed to become a part of the change. I needed to make a difference. From then on, when I made a purchase, I asked myself if the company cared about people, planet and animals. I looked into their background, their principles and their products, from ingredients to manufacturing. Now, I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you, so you too can be a part of the change.
Let’s Make A Difference together.
