Friday Favorite: The Root Collective

Introducing Friday Favorites! First up, straight out of Bethany’s (Bethany from Mermade) closet, are her beloved Blythe booties from The Root Collective. This Small biz inspires Big by using its power to create incredible change in Guatemala. Founder, Bethany Tran is creating sustainable jobs for the vulnerable in an area where gang violence runs rampant, and where job opportunities are few and far between. As the old saying goes, give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.

“I saved for these boots because I knew that I would wear them year round in SoCal. What’s cool is that each time I put them on I know that my purchase is providing dignified work for those who need it most. I have received so many compliments on these boots and the best part about that is getting to share the change they are bringing! Tip- if you’re looking to build a more ethical wardrobe, start with the classics. A leather boot or flat is a great first purchase and literally goes with everything, including your favorite tee from target. :)”
