Speak Up With Your Wallet!


So, if you haven’t heard, our new president got a little snippy with one of my favorite retailers for dropping his daughter Ivanka’s brand. (Seriously, how is this man still tweeting?!) I can’t possibly refrain from excessive eye-rolling at this point…they actually might get stuck at the back of my head.

This got me thinking, though. I’ve been doing a fair amount of activist work since I returned from the Women’s March on Washington…writing letters to senators, researching local activist groups to help out, spreading the word amongst my social media channels, etc.

But. BUT. Looking at the past 10 years or so at this blog, what have we been pretty good at accomplishing here at Whoorl? Well, spending. Buying things. (Mindfully, of course. Um, well, most of the time.)

So let’s start talking about companies we should be putting our dollars behind (like Patagonia!) and the ones we should not (ahem, UNDER ARMOUR).

This week? It’s all about Nordstrom. Still one of my favorite retailers, despite Mr. Trump’s rants.

Here are some of my current favorites.

var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;
if(!d.getElementById(id)) {
e = d.createElement(s);
e.id = id;
e.src = p + ‘://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/boutique.js’;
if(typeof window.__boutique === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {
}(document, ‘script’, ’boutique-script’);
