Top 5 KNOWSHOW brands that are making an impact.

In honour of National Earth Day we decided to look into brands that are making an impact right now and are betting high on sustainability.


Brands are starting to make a change and improve their social responsibility component as their #1 priority knowing that consumers are more aware of what is happening in the world. At KNOWSHOW we know that being sustainable does not mean just being "green" it goes beyond that, so having brands that are conscious about materials, their communities and spreading awareness is really important for us as well.


Here are the top 5 responsible brands that will showcase at KNOWSHOW:
