If we do nothing to address climate change, our world will be destabilized. The worst effects of climate change won’t be higher sea levels, higher rates of asthma, or even more extreme weather. Climate change threatens to upend our economies, our politics, our culture, and whether we can even continue with the assumption that the future will be more prosperous and more just than the past.
One of the most significant ways we can make the societal change at the pace necessary to deal with a problem as looming and as ubiquitous as climate change is at the ballot box, but as citizens we have to wait 2-4 years to cast our votes. As consumers we can cast our vote with our wallets everyday.
At Salvos, we want to offer consumers the ability to shop for sustainable products simply and without the BS.
Sustainable products are more available and affordable than anytime in modern history. However, there is enormous consumer confusion about what sustainable really means and there is a growing trend among consumers to throw up our hands and assume all sustainability efforts are just marketing hype.
We want to give consumers a comprehensive selection of products that are actually sustainable and the peace of mind that each purchase makes a meaningful difference for the environment.
We named this firm Salvos, which means ‘survival’ in Latin, because we fundamentally believe that our economy must be sustainable in order for the modern economy and civilization to survive.
