Do as you say!
With sustainability going mainstream, it’s easy for brands to pick up on buzzwords to sell products. Being ethical is not a marketing tactic! Tell your story but let it be authentic! If you’re working towards an ethical agenda then your real truth as a brand will create a much deeper connection with your audience.
Storytelling is a journey. As humans our favourite stories are ones where we are emotionally connected, we see a subject overcome adversity! It plays on humans necessity to sustain hope – no matter what. Most of us working with an ethical agenda are fighting against atrocities we have seen or experienced – but remember people will either respond with apathy or revolution. So when you tell your ethical story, focus on the positive message and the outcome that their conscious actions can have!
