Buy the Change You Want to See: Use Your Purchasing Power to Make the World a Better Place

Eager to change the world? Learn how you can have a greater social impact through your everyday purchases.

Join Founder and CEO of To the Market Jane Mosbacher Morris in conversation about Morris’s new book, Buy the Change You Want to See. Learn simple but powerful ways to make a difference in the world by tweaking behaviors in impactful ways.

The money we routinely spend on food, clothes, gifts and even indulgences is an untapped superpower. What would happen if we slowed down to make more thoughtful decisions about what we buy? For “mom and pop” stores across the country, and artisan and agricultural communities around the world, every purchase matters. From seeking responsibly sourced goods and products benefitting at-risk communities, to choosing recycled goods over new materials, Mosbacher Morris outlines practical tips and actionable advice for both individuals and businesses to use their purchasing power for good.

The conversation will be moderated by Philips McCarty, vice president for Advancement and executive director of the FIT Foundation.
