Please join UC Merced for a panel discussion with Jeremy Black, founder of Sambazon, and Mike Bronner, President of Dr. Bronner's, and others from the film, "Seeding Change" on Friday June 18th at 3PM via zoom.
About the film: 'Over the past two decades, a new breed of mission-driven business has risen, led by the next generation of social entrepreneurs. Their companies follow a philosophy known as the “Triple Bottom Line”, which measures success socially, environmentally, and economically. A vision exists at the core of these sustainable social enterprises to create solutions through their supply chains, branding and products. Whether they’re fighting poverty through Fair Trade job creation, protecting biodiversity and rainforests, or regenerating topsoil through organic and sustainable agriculture. These businesses offer an opportunity for viewers to cast a vote through their purchase decisions for the type of future they support. Empowering consumers to practice conscious commerce and make positive change for the planet by voting with their dollars.'
