Start Something that Matters, a book by TOMS Chief Shoe Giver, Blake Mycoskie, challenges readers to make a positive change in the world and start a project that matters to them. After finishing her copy of the book, music-loving Bridget knew she was ready to start her own socially conscious company, LSTN.
After working for 8 years at a record company, Bridget decided to combine her passion for music and the environment to develop LSTN headphones. LSTN makes beautiful, high quality headphones that are handcrafted from reclaimed wood. Not only are the headphones made using eco-friendly materials, the company also features a unique give-back element. For every pair LSTN sells, the company helps restore hearing to a child in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Bridget knew when she started her business that she wanted to share her love of music and help children in need. The Starkey Hearing Foundation has donated over one million hearing aids and helps over 120 countries, including the United States.
