Something is definitely happening in our culture. We think it's a new consumer revolution.
We're seeing a dramatic shift in the way business is done toward more transparency, collaboration, democracy, innovation - and ultimately more value. FearLess Revolution brings new ideas, inspiring stories, dynamic tools and practical resources to empower our communities and local economies.
The fact is we all consume to live. The food we put in our bodies, the clothes we put on our backs, the devices we use to do our jobs, and the energy that goes into everything we touch. Together we consume A LOT. Yet our expectations are too low. We think we have to accept the bad that comes with the good. The pollution that comes with the energy. The unsafe working conditions that come with low prices. The toxic materials that come with convenient packaging.
We can do better. Wanting stuff isn't going to change. So maybe it's time to want more – more from ourselves and more from the people who make our stuff.
The duties of citizen and consumer are colliding.
To be a concerned citizen requires that we become concerned consumers because the reality is, corporations will impact our future as much as governments will. Voting beyond the ballot box with our purchasing power is rapidly becoming a powerful individual tool in the democratic experience.
We see ourselves as advocates in a new citizen consumer revolution - one founded on the principle that we have the power and the tools to reshape the world again.
We humbly put our shoulders behind the best ideas, wild innovations and the FearLess, LoveMore values co-created by you, our readers, with our FearLess community and look forward to some laughs along the way. Just because the fate of our children lies in the balance, doesn't mean we can't have a good time.
FearLess Revolution is a project of the Living Green Foundation, a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization.
