For many of us, the thought of contributing to immorality is appalling. Luckily, we do have other options. Many musicians, celebrities, and brands have announced partnerships with charitable causes and awareness campaigns, promising to donate proceeds from purchases. Katy Perry, Starbucks, Dell, and others have joined the (RED) initiative, for example, donating money to provide medication for AIDS and HIV. Companies like TOMS promise to donate a pair of shoes for every purchase made, and the up-and-coming Brandless, partnered with Feeding America, promises to donate a meal for every order. If you’re concerned about ethical shopping, purchasing from a company or supporting a celebrity who backs a … [Read more...] about Do consumers really care about brand morals? Maybe not.
