Most of the media often paints all businesses with a single stroke, but in our experience businesses are each unique and so many of them are focused on making the world a better place. We’ve highlighted a few such gems below.

Charline Zeroual | Sustainable Wardrobe Stylist

Fashion is one of the most polluting industry globally after the fuel and the agriculture industry. As a wardrobe and personal stylist, I use clothing every day to make my clients feel and look good. 2 years ago, after moving from NYC to LA, I decided to focus on sustainable fashion and use my voice as a style expert to create and promote awareness around it. My mission is to help women look and feel their best with the fundamentals of personal styling while focusing on a more conscious approach to fashion consumption. Read more>>

Nandan Lawande | Director of photography

Films are not just made for entertainment purposes but also to spread awareness. I believe that a film could take somebody out of their reality to believe in something more. It has the power to communicate a stronger message. As a cinematographer, I love to work with directors and writers whose stories give a strong voice to unheard issues. Similarly, the last few films I worked on “Fear of Darkness” which is based on Agoraphobia caused by killing of George Floyd and “Retrieval” which is a film that brings awareness to motor neuron disease and shows the importance of donation of organs. Another such film is “bare” a drama based on breast cancer. This film for screened in the awareness film fest. These films have won over 20 film festivals including retrieval being the BAFTA finalist. Read more>>

Alexia & Adeline | Founders of the French Holiday Market

The French Holiday Market has been created with the idea to promote the Savoir-Faire of French craft makers living in the USA. Small local boutiques and crafters are really important here and invite us to develop our creativity. Craft stores are in every city, and you can start a handmade project within a day. When the covid hit in 2020, and we saw all the little holiday markets being cancelled to protect our communities, we then thought of all the crafters who have been working on their creations for the last 3-4 months and wouldn’t be able to sell them.

Tamia Haynes | CEO: Naturalistic Brows Artistry and Academy

Naturalistic Brows helps the community in many ways. We give Areolas and Brows to women and men whom have fought a good fight against breast cancer and won. A Areola tattoo or even brows can make a survivor feel complete again. I have heard so many times from women and men say that after reconstructive surgery they still don’t feel whole or they feel insecure. This is not for every women or man but we defiantly help restore some of the confidence that was lost. I also can give microblading to a alopecia client so there face does not feel bare any more. We can give a Mom, Grandma or Aunt or Nurse or Doctor anyone that just needs a extra boost of confidence some beauty love. We all know that eyebrows frame your face and the right lip color can brighten the face and even make you look and feel more youthful. The real power of beauty comes from ones confidence. Naturalistic Brows makes real connections with their clients and its community. Read more>>
