Over half of workers say “a job where I can make an impact” is important to their happiness. Meanwhile, 66 percent of global consumers say they’re willing to pay more for sustainable brands—up 55 percent from 2014.

Does your business deliver on these trends?

Please join us for an interactive workshop presented by Lowcountry Local First to learn how you can find ways to make a direct impact on your community and the world through your business.
