The Story of a Brand

Feb 26, 2022

This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.


Helping to convert a brand to more sustainable business practices starts with green warehousing practices, says George Wojciechowski and Jen Root, co-founders of Manifest Commerce.


"There are sustainable alternatives every step of the way, even down to end of life with upcycling and re-commerce," Jen says.


The process of converting a supply chain to a sustainable format is "comprehensive," George says, but the important thing is "to just start."


In Part 2, Jen and George talk about:


* How plastics can be used to recreate things ten times over.
* How maritime partnerships can help with lowering carbon footprints.
* The start of "shared truckloads," which works like carpooling for your inventory.
* Despite the company's noble mission, it's still essential to be competitive in price and "hit the slots" that e-commerce business owners need.
* Building a sustainable business from the ground up is essential. It's hard to pivot when you're going 100 miles per hour.
