In other words, am I getting paid to write this article? Well, that’s actually a more complicated answer.
As someone who’s wildly passionate about the environment and believes that we should invest in experiences over material items, I have spent the last 7 years actively avoiding the promotion of consumer products. Before I wanted to walk down the line of collaborations and affiliates I wanted to be clear on what my own ethos was, so that I could morally be proud of any collaborations I aligned with, and stand behind the products, services, and companies I recommend to you. And most importantly, I would only recommend items that I either own (like these pants) or that I would bring into my own home.
So, to be fully transparent, after 7 years of evaluating, researching, and interviewing what affiliate companies I wanted to work with I chose BeWildHer as my very first. Their passion for the environment, local movement, and badass boss lady approach left me knowing they were the perfect fit. And while I will be compensated a small amount (think a booster juice), that money will go to keep Adventure Awaits running and support the development of our own business and initiatives. And plus… we all need pants, so why not wear pants that make a statement to the world!
