Let’s start with the obvious. Everyone has their own set of values and goals. This same complexity within individuality does not look any different for conscious consumers. Recognizing that you possess some if not most of the values that fall within conscious consumerism will allow you to step into a community of individuals just like you – wanting more for the world based on the values they uphold.

It may seem daunting to sift through all of the possible values, products, and conscious businesses out there, so here is a guide to values and conscious businesses that uphold these values:
