Feel Your Impact Podcast
A podcast built to go behind the scenes of the responsible apparel movement.
Our goal and the "why" of this series is to both educate and further a conversation about how we, as makers and consumers, can have a greater impact on the people and planet. Most of us get a choice of what we sell, make, buy, and wear every day. Through learning and improvement, we can all make better choices for a better tomorrow.

In Episode 8 of the Feel Your Impact Podcast, Mel Lay and Ryan Moor interview Roger Burnett who just published a book called Red Goldfish, Promo Edition. Ryan met Roger over two years ago on his podcast and have worked on several impactful projects since. To give you a little intro to this week's episode, here is the Amazon review Ryan left of this book, it's 5 stars by the way.
"Say in your head: Sales Rep... Promotional Product... What do you think of? Used cars, cheezy pens, bouncy balls and crappy shirts? In this book, Roger flips that conception on its head providing real-life examples and strategies on how sourcing and selling in the 20+ billion dollar promotional products industry can make the world and the people who care to be a Red Goldfish, better for it!"
