A LETTER FROM OUR CO-FOUNDER 💌

• • •

November 25, 2016

To our amazing Project JUST community,

Today we launch the Project JUST Membership. Consider it an opportunity to make a commitment to yourself and to the world to change the way you shop, a club to help each of us become more ethical and sustainable shoppers, with the tools and support we need to do it.

Membership includes access to:

  1. The Project JUST Wiki: research and data on brands we shop from – all the info on how, where and by whom our clothes are made
  2. How-to Guides on ethical shopping, building a conscious wardrobe, and cleaning out your closet
  3. The best in new brands and city guides featuring the best ethical shopping
  4. Our sustainable buyers club: special discounts and promotions to JUST APPROVED brands

Why a membership?

Because we’ve reached a critical moment in our journey and in this movement.

On the one hand, 20,000+ of you visit our site every month. We think this is pretty great, but we want to reach 50,000 per month. We want to make more JUST APPROVED lists, get our seal of approval in stores, gather more data and stories from the ground, and discover more brands and beautiful, quality products.

On the other hand, apart from the incredible support we’ve received from our network through our crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, a few angel supporters, and a small grant from a game changing foundation – we’ve largely done this on our own. We haven’t had much luck raising grants or soliciting donors; we’ve heard we’re too early stage, that we can’t prove our impact, that we’re not a part of “the broader strategy”.

So we’re taking a chance.

We’re betting that you – the shopper – care enough to keep this movement going. Much like NPR and Wikipedia, and as a non-profit existing to serve and empower the shopper, we’ve decided to ask the people we’re helping to help us, by collectively committing to support Project JUST so that we can stay accountable to you. Without resources, we will have to stop –  please trust us in saying we’ve thought, researched and strategized long and hard on how to keep going.

So this is a letter to those who’ve come to our site and said,

“Yes, this is exactly what I’ve been looking for.”

“Wow, what a powerful initiative.”

“I should tell my friend about this.”

We’re asking you to officially climb on board! Become a member and demonstrate your commitment and support for a change-making movement.

With our deepest thanks,

Natalie Grillon
Co-Founder & CEO, Project JUST
