LOS ANGELES, Jun. 13 /CSRwire/ - John Paul Selects will be participating in this year's LOHAS forum on June 20th, 2013 as a partner and a presenter of the “Excellence in Sustainability Award.” LOHAS and John Paul Selects' missions are very similar in that they focus on educating and building communities around a central theme of healthy and sustainable lifestyles, for both individuals and societies. Named after our co-founder, humanitarian and entrepreneur, John Paul DeJoria, John Paul Selects scouts the world for the best up-and-coming eco-conscious brands and entrepreneurs. Every brand affiliated with John Paul Selects is carefully vetted and tested by our team to ensure the quality of their products, and the sustainability of their production.
A highlight of the event will be Jonathan Kendrick, one of the founders of John Paul Selects, will be presenting the “Sustainable Excellence Award.” John Paul Selects will choose the winner, awarding the company who meets the most criteria based on the sustainable benchmarks that are set for each of the brands that are sold on the site. All John Paul Selects brands are tagged with eco icons to indicate the value that each product places on sustainability, social causes, and the way they make this world a better place. The nominees for the Excellence in Sustainability Award are: Lotus Wei / Chocolate Wei, Acure Organics, Gaia Herbs, Organic India Tea, Chico Bags and Sweet Riot.
In addition to presenting, Jonathan Kendrick will also be a panel participant on June 19th, 2013 in an investor pitch session, exemplifying his entrepreneurial spirit. “Raising Capital Fishbowl Pitch” will be dedicated to sharing experiences and lessons learned, while breaking down the ‘game film’ of a pitch. Companies will present their businesses to investors, who will then provide feedback while the audience observes. A following Q&A between the audience and both the presenter companies and investors will be facilitated.
LOHAS is the ideal partner for John Paul Selects, as we both believe in educating that small changes do make a powerful impact. Sustainability is a way of life and we all have to start somewhere – we want people to understand and feel that taking action is better than doing nothing. The more we educate consumers as to what products are made of, where and how they are produced, and what sustainable impact they have, the closer we get to building communities around the theme of healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
