Newsletter | Issue #29: Say hey to our new Founder Community

Hi hi! Here’s a quick ice-breaker for you: if there’s ONE thing to know about The Verticale, it’s that community and founder stories are at the root of everything we do. 

This week, we announced that we’re joining forces with Marmalade, and now we’re bringing you even bigger news: we’ve just launched a Founder Community— a network of founders supporting founders and sharing their favorite brands on the internet with you. My favs?

So, if you’re looking to procrastinate with some killer “window” shopping, you could browse some of the incredible lists this community has put together. 

Now back to this week’s conscious news & finds…

Things to Buy

Plastic faux-pas. If there’s one thing Americans can pride themselves on it’s our good teeth. Brushing your teeth twice a day, you’ve probably already realized our oral hygiene routines are riddled in plastic– which is, yeah no. 

Our editors love Bite (aptly named tbh) which has come to the rescue with a tubeless toothpaste, a little something to keep your breath fresh anytime anywhere, a plant-based swap to this most important step, and the shining star of oral hygiene. Oh and did we mention it’s completely plastic free?   

Don’t let those awkward (braces-having) pre-teen years go to waste…
