People gathered together, especially for a specific purpose
We believe it's irresponsible to sell goods or services in the 21st century without demonstrating corporate responsibility. That's why Conscious Couples elects to be a Conscious Company.
We adhere to the following ideologies and practices:
All Are Welcome. Conscious Couples welcomes all because God loves and accepts all. Thus, we welcome clients of all races, cultures, national origins, sizes, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, religions, ages, and abilities.
Black Lives Matter. To be silent is to be complicit. What each of us does within ourselves and our organization to confront prejudice and racism in its varied forms matters. We believe that injustice for anyone threatens justice for everyone, thus, we stand in solidarity with those engaged in the struggle for racial justice everywhere.
Giving is Good. We give 5% of all proceeds to well-vetted national charities, whose mission and values reflect our own. These amazing organizations are listed below.
Environmental Responsibility Rocks. We pledge to purchase and use recycled and environmentally responsible office products, to only use print paper when absolutely necessary, to recycle fervently, and to do our share to reduce all waste and limit our carbon footprint.
Service Follows Sacrament. We serve God by serving others. "As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10. We feel honored to serve our clients and also strive towards benefaction in our personal lives.
