All we have in this world we owe to the earth. It’s past time we start giving back.
At Brave + Kind Co, we focus on the heart of the matter first. Everything else follows. We believe in being Stewards of Earth and Humankind. That’s why we have voluntarily pledged ourselves to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Principles and Goals collectively represent our aspirations as a business and the values we seek in our partnerships and collaborations. We believe through these commitments we can focus on positive innovations for responsible and sustainable living and contribute to the overall progress of humanity. The Goals ask us to work together on several levels; nations, governments, businesses, communities, and individuals to create changes in policy and practices that drive a more humane and sustainable world.
Because the Principles and Goals are big, impactful guideposts, we also want to ensure the we have smaller guideposts helping direct us in the larger stream. That’s why we focus on four priorities: Conscious Consumerism, Education, Community, and Giving Back, Paying Forward. Read more here.
