There's no question that consumers are demanding more ethical and environmentally-friendly products than ever before. This can be attributed to a consumer trend of Millennials and Gen Zs recognizing that their purchases have power and each dollar spent is a vote for the world they want to see. These trends are pivotal to the mission of this week's Stockist Spotlight on Hippie Haven, a zero-waste shop in Rapid City, South Dakota. We're honored to have our line available with this ethically-focused shop and we hope you enjoy our interview with their owner Callee Ackland!
