In case you missed our Earth Day "Ask why before you buy" panel, we’re excited to share the conversation with you. What we care about the most when we select our brands is the values that underpin them. From the outset, a sustainable outlook has been a core selection criteria. We were thrilled to spotlight Sarah Beydoun as one of our panelists as well as Aslaug Magnusdottir, Rachel Arthur, Kelly Eastwood and our moderator Anne Marie Curtis.
