Triple Pundit is excited to be a media partner for this year’s Sustainable Brands conference in Monterey, CA on June 7-10. This post is part of a showcase for SB10’s Innovation Open – an early stage business competition that brings 11 exciting new ideas to the stage. Be sure to drop by the competition on June 7th.

Everyone’s favorite green-minded super model and eco-activist, Summer Rayne Oakes, has taken walking the walk to the next level with the launch of Source4Style.com, a B-2-B online marketplace and innovations platform that allows fashion and interior designers to search for, compare and purchase sustainable materials from a curated network of global suppliers.

In conjunction with fair trade entrepreneur Benita Singh, the company’s aim is to reduce the amount of time and money that designers currently spend looking to source and purchase quality raw materials. For sustainable suppliers, the platform will make it possible to display their stories and product offerings in a clear and concise way to a range of interested buyers.

The real details will be revealed on June 7th and Triple Pundit will be there to see how it stacks up to the rest of the competition.
