A few facts you should know about Cayley:

  1. She speaks 5 languages (Hindi, German, Spanish, Farsi, and English). Her love of languages ultimately led her down the path to founding Made Trade (hear why in today’s 🎙 episode)⁣⁣
  2. She believes that every product we buy and bring into our lives has an impact on people somewhere in the world. She believes that if people were paid a livable wage for their work, they wouldn’t need financial aid. If materials used in the products we buy were responsibly harvested without exploiting the planet’s resources, we wouldn’t need to undo the damage that’s done as a result of manufacturing. ⁣⁣
  3. She believes in artistry above efficiency. Fair wages above profits. Sustainability above mass production. Quality craftsmanship above mindless consumption. And transparency above everything. ⁣⁣
  4. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, Andy.⁣⁣

Madeleine Wisecup

A few years ago, I became obsessed with learning about sustainable and ethical practices and products, waste reduction, natural foods, and overall wellness. I read articles and books about the toxic products we put on our skins and into our bodies; explored numerous facets, challenges, and success stories of the slow fashion/sustainable fashion movement; and started reading the ingredient labels on everything I bought (you’d be surprised how much crap you can’t even pronounce). I was on a personal mission to improve my overall wellness and to become a wiser, more conscientious consumer. The more research I did – and continue to do – the more I realized how many amazing people and businesses were out there making a difference, breaking the status quo, and positively impacting the lives of people all over the world while equally making our planet just a little bit happier. These were people invested in using their businesses as, as Richard Branson would say, a force for good, people who were in the business of positive change. I was hooked. Today, I am on a quest to connect with social- and environmental-impact entrepreneurs; to uncover ethical and sustainable practices and brands, and to share the remarkable stories of good-doers and the impacts they’re making all over the world.
