Now more than ever shop consciously at local & fair retailers who have been investing in positive change. They were the pioneers realising that our current consumerism isn't the way forward. They are emerging and do business from the heart, with love for their suppliers, for the world and all the people involved.
As at the moment, physical stores will find it even harder due to the Belgian governments who imposed full closing. Hence we at COSH are making an exception in supporting online shopping so that they can survive, thrive and accelerate after Corona.
Because when you spend money now, retailers can (pay the bills) and invest in new products next season. Our actions in supporting small retail today will have implications on how they purchase and keep supporting brands that offer fair trade all-over the planet.
So yes, the coming weeks shopping at COSH stores is really like doing charity.
It is time to place your vote for the world you want to live in after Corona.
