If you’re anything like me, your e-mail box already overflows with daily sale posts from Gilt, Fab, RueLaLa, the Foundary, Joss and Main, Urban Daddy, Beyond the Rack, Jack Threads, and about a million more…and of course women can easily double the number of “exclusive” sale sites hoping to have inspiration delivered to their e-door. Because of the overload in the online retail space, I grow ever more hesitant about signing up for more. I rarely click on these commerce message any more like I used to in the early days, so why invite more alerts that will only get deleted?
Well, here’s why. A site that is new (to me) is Roozt, and they are all about curating brands (men’s, women’s, pets, food, accessories, home, electronics, etc–a huge and ever-growing list) that give back and are dedicated to making a positive impact on their community. It is as if someone has done the background research for me to confirm that the companies on offer are eco-cool, good to their employees, giving back, and adding some social responsibility to the world. I love that. Membership in Roozt is free, and as a little cherry on top, in partnership with Feeding America, for each member signing up, they will provide a nutritious meal to an American in need.
Good to get in on this smart sale stuff before the holiday frenzy begins, and alleviate some guilt of conspicuous consumerism…now if they can work on alleviating the guilt of scarfing up all that holiday baking, it will be a merry season for sure.
