Hi ladies! I’m looking for thoughts on your favorite mission-driven brands that actually perform well (e.g. patagonia or Honest) and why you like them? Sometimes I try a product and it has a great story but then it doesn’t do the job. I’m trying to move towards low carbon footprint, and support more American-made, or minority-owned businesses.

Friendly reminder: there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism!

Try as you might (and genuinely please do) the big companies ie Amazon, Nestle, Johnson & Johnson need to make the drastic changes to reverse the earth’s issue - also the Fed and state gov needs to stop giving free passes to these corps.

Good luck on your journey!!!

personally I don't understand what part of sustainable products are sustainable. Maybe they pay workers in Nepal more than the standard, but do they source materials ethically? how about transportation of products? we have a long way to go, but supporting ethical companies as a consumer is the start GS1. if consumers decide that only ethical (or at least trying to be) is acceptable, then down the line the corps will have to change or go out of business.

This is probably a dumb question, but what is the most appropriate way to ask someone where they are from? I am obsessed with accents, and am always so curious to know where the accent is from. In my selfish world, it allows me to find new places to travel and cultures to explore. It even helps me ask the person for suggestions of place to go/eat if they spent considerable time in that country. I truly don't want to come across as racist... I genuinely am curious.

I have a daughter graduating in S/W Engineering with 3 summer internships at Citi and from a very reputable college. Full time offer from Citi is pending. Can someone share Citi’s startup salary figure for new graduates in Engineering (my guess it is about ~$80k). How about a comparison with other opportunities and startup salaries (e.g. Amazon, Google, Facebook (Meta), EY PwC Deloitte etc.). Who pays the most?

Sigh so I am sort of seeing this dude and he doesn't text between dates. Only to make/confirm plans and on our first in person date (we had a few virtual) he asked to see me again before I brought it up and ofc I said yes. He did tell me he's not much of a texter but I'm sort of bummed at the same time because I'm crushing and it would be nice to hear from him/don't know if he's truly interested.

Anyone here get self conscious about “best friend” groups? I keep seeing beautiful pandemic birthday celebrations, troops of girlfriends coming together to do social distance drive bys and video compilations. I can’t help but get sad each time I see that, thinking that there’s no one who would do that for me. Time and distance have separated my close friends from high school and college, and it’s hard to make new besties after 25. Am I just a jealous shrew lol or do others feel like this?
