Welcome to Collective Thoughts, our people-powered blog

July 23, 2019

HEY FRIENDS! I'm so very glad you're here. A million years ago (ok, more like 5 years ago) we had a blog that went the way of the dinosaur, but we're back and better than ever. Why?

Because this blog will be powered by you.

ICYMI, we are super passionate about community here. We really love people just all around. Our mission at The Root Collective is not just to sell ethically made shoes, but to also build community around those shoes of just really incredible people.

You are a part of that.

We'll be featuring blog posts written by yours truly, and also people in our community. 

So, if you want to get involved, please submit your idea! I'd love to hear from you. We are looking for posts about ethical fashion, fair trade, community, eco-friendly, family, fashion. styling... and all of the things in between.

You can send it to bethany@therootcollective.com

Can't wait to meet you.
