Great new website, featuring Haiti Projects

2010 March 12

Daily Grommet is a fantastic new company engaged in the concept of Citizen Commerce, a concept dedicated to improving the consumer experience. Their idea is to use social media and technology to improve commerce at both ends — both improving consumers’ experience but also improving the positive impact of their shopping on their communities and the greater world. To do so they feature a unique product each day and tell the story of that product through video. Daily Grommet was honored as one of this years’ Microsoft Accelerator Finalists at the SXSW Multimedia Conference.

The organization that I work with, Haiti Projects, has been featured as today’s Daily Grommet — check us out! The video is also embedded below.

PS I realize this doesn’t have so much to do with food, per se… But keep checking back to Daily Grommet! They often feature some exciting kitchen accessories and delicious delicacies.

    Steph, Thanks so much for telling your readers about Daily Grommet. The Haiti Projects just takes my breath away. I am so pleased we could shine a spotlight on it.

    If you, or anyone, would like like us to to consider an idea as a future Grommet, please let us know. We look for products, projects, and services that amplify good in the world. That can be philanthropy, but it can also be technical innovation, green enterprise, invention, and preserving craft. There is a place on our home page to submit ideas, or just Tweet #GrommetIdea. Thanks!
