Dear Clean Creeders,
This year has changed my group of friends in many ways. We think differently about the things we buy, the people we value most, and how we look at our days to come.
It made us want to find a purpose – a way to contribute to society, to live a more meaningful life, to be of service.
But how do we do that? We’re not first responders. We’re working moms that love our families, friends, and communities.
After some discussion, we decided we could help the most by purchasing our everyday items from U.S.-owned small businesses.
But shopping small wasn’t as easy as we thought.
Because small businesses are run by regular people – not by algorithms. Small business products get lost in the big-budget advertisements, complex search algorithms, and worldwide content churned out from the big boys.
That’s when we decided:
So Clean Creed was born.
CleanCreed.com helps you find great products from U.S.-based small businesses that align with our CLEAN Core Values – the lens through which we evaluate how we operate and which products we list.
We also encourage our customers to shop from small businesses they believe in – whether that’s women-owned, minority-owned, family-owned, disabled-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, or military-owned.
We research small businesses while our kids are on their iPads past screen time alarms. We’re on the phone with small businesses when they yell down the stairs, “What’s for dinner?” We’re reading reviews, checking corporate filings, and stalking LinkedIn profiles while others are sleeping.
And we’re just getting started.
We all have choices on what we support with our dollars. We started Clean Creed to make those choices easier.
If you have a small business or know of a small business, that fits within our CLEAN Creed Core Values, please click on Join Our Creed.
Thank you, all! We’re excited for you to join us on this journey!
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; because it’s the only thing that ever has.Margaret Mead
