The first Benefit Corporation in the state of Louisiana
Growing up in Puerto Rico, I attended coffee and artisan festivals every month; the community knew the owners and the municipalities represented. As an adult, I support local business that help our society and Mother Nature. Living in New Orleans I am lucky enough to live in a effervescent city known for their home grown entrepreneurship. Tippy Tippens is that entrepreneur and the subject of today's blog.
GOODS THAT MATTER
Eco-Conscious brand that gives back to environmental and social causes.
Tippens, eager to create objects that work for us, started a company encompassing sustainable gift items. That company is GOODS THAT MATTER and they sell high quality handmade goods that give 10% of all proceeds to different causes. Highlighted are some of my easy-to-wrap gifts perfect for this holiday season.
