Why Change Co. Exists and The Ladies Behind It

Hello, lovely!

We created Change Co. to connect you to products that serve a greater purpose; to introduce you to companies that strive to make the world a better place. At the beginning of every season you will not just fall in love with beautifully made lifestyle products from companies such as Pura Vida, Tree Tribe, and Branded Collective, but you will fall in love with the purpose you are now connected to and the change that you are creating. From start to finish, Change Co. exists to bring modern, fashionable products with a purpose straight to your door step. We hope to inspire you to shop consciously, to find the good in your every day routine, and to shine a light on the causes that need our attention the most.

I was born and raised in Kentucky with a large family that made even the mundane days impeccable! I have a passion for traveling the world, and experiencing new and breathtaking things with the ones that I love. I live for the calm nights spent outdoors with my husband who doubles as my best friend, and my German Shepherd who brings me so much joy (as well as terrifies the neighbors!)! I am from a small ‘blink and you miss it’ town in Kentucky, where everyone is your neighbor and no-one locks their doors. And while I love that my story started in that town, I had the desire to create something that would have a positive ripple effect on the world as a whole.

I have devoted quite a bit of my life to finding ways to give back, but I struggled to find how I could directly create that ripple. I am lucky to have a spectacular husband, a loving family, and an incredible circle of friends that have encouraged me to find that purpose. After a couple of weeks of brainstorming, and coming up with some far fetched ideas (and some that did not quite make any sense at all, haha), I thought of all of the social enterprises that give back while giving you a product - and how wonderful it would be if more people saw the value in seeking purpose in their purchases. Before I knew it, Change Co. was born! I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve the world and introduce you to fabulous products that hold such a beautiful story. I am so glad that you’re here, and hope that you decide to be apart of this journey with us. :)

I’m Meredith, the other half of Change Co. I was born and raised in Tennessee and have the joy of being one of six children! Growing up, life was wonderfully filled with big laughs and tears, lots of adventures, and people (lol). I relish my time alone outdoors; hiking and camping is one of my great passions. I also enjoy reading and quiet nights with friends (the older I get, the quieter I want to be, haha). Being part of a large family instilled a passion for helping others, listening and creating harmony. After traveling the world and experiencing other cultures, I have been searching for a way to use all these strengths and to have a bigger, more positive impact on the world. Enter Change Co. 

Change Co. is bringing socially conscious products right to your doorstep. How awesome is that?! It’s a great way to prepare yourself for the season and to know that you are creating a positive impact across the world. WE get to change the lives of victims of trafficking, artisans in developing countries, and bringing individuals and families out of poverty! What a way to give back…and all with products that you would buy anyway. I’m so happy to be a part of this grand idea and strive to bring my best and most positive self everyday! I am so thankful for you. :)

  • Hi there
    I came across your business. This seems to be a growing business model.
    I own an ethical and environmentally-conscious officewear brand for women – Rose & Willard, which means, literally, Feminine & Bold. Our website address is roseandwillard.com.
    If you buy wholesale and are looking for slow fashion for the office then please do feel free to get in touch.
    With kind regards and wishing you the best for your future!
