UW-Green Bay alumna starts online store to help women
UW-Green Bay alumna Christine (Pfiester) Sandberg ’15 (launched) The Lemonade Boutique, an online women’s clothing with a cause store to help human trafficking victims. The online store prides itself on curating ethically made and fair trade items. Most of the artisans behind the products are overcoming extreme challenges such as human trafficking. In the short five years they’ve operated, they’ve partnered with 30 artisan groups across 20 countries.
At The Lemonade Boutique, “your purchase empowers women to take life’s lemons and make lemonade,” Sandberg says. “When she graduated in 2015, Sandberg says she did not imagine she would be starting an online store, but she always knew she wanted to make a difference in the world.
