Although just one month old, LaGrandDame.com, an online retailer of high-end fashion for plus sizes, is already stepping up to help its customers do their part to help our planet smile. Michelle Wood, and Catherine Wood-Hill, the mother-daughter duo who founded this e-boutique have teamed up with Boulder, CO based Renewable Choice Energy to launch the "round up your order" program. (Renewable Choice is the leading renewable energy supplier for nationwide green projects and partners with such companies as Whole Foods Market.)
With this program in place, shoppers at check-out can "round up" their order to the next dollar at check-out with the monies going to Renewable Choice Energy's programs. With this option customers can take action to help offset the environmental impact associated with shipment of their order. "I wanted to share with my customers the importance of understanding what we do and how even the way we shop impacts the planet while providing them with ways to help offset this , explains Catherine Wood-Hill, CEO of La Grande Dame. "With this new program, Round Up Impact Down, provides an easy way for customers in making the choice to give back to the environment."
"We are excited about the launch of this unique program and to be chosen as La Grande Dame's partner", said Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice. "It is forward- thinking businesses like La Grande Dame that are helping to help educate consumers and positively impact how they make daily decisions. A simple decision, such as choosing to offset a portion of the energy impact of a product shipment creates momentum and with momentum, larger changes are possible."
