bumbrella is so excited to be the latest “grommet”! What is a grommet, you ask? A grommet is an innovative, unique product that is created by a "Maker" with a story to tell. Often a grommet is new to market or has not yet been broadly discovered when it found by the enthusiastic Grommet team. When grommets are chosen, they are ready to find a wider audience and The Grommet product launch platform gives them the amplification and attention they deserve. The Grommet’s goal is to help these small, innovative businesses succeed by reaching a group of highly motivated consumers who look for and appreciate “grommets". The Grommet discovery team is highly selective in finding "grommets"….every year they review and examine hundreds of items. Only a lucky 3% are chosen! How does The Grommet decide which products and companies are “best"? First, they must be true innovators. Second, they must have rich stories to share (often full of blood, sweat and tears). Third, they must be built on strong values. Those values can include preserving a handcraft, solving a problem in a fresh way, creating jobs in a struggling or developing region, building a social or green enterprise, manufacturing in the USA, or inventing new technologies. bumbrella is thrilled to be one of the chosen few! We will be making our debut on The Grommet website on March 31, 2016!
Since 2008, The Grommet has launched over 2000 products to a loyal following of 2 million emails subscribers and over 140,000 social media followers! Every month more than 6 million visitors explore the website to discover new and unusual products. New products launch happen ever weekday at noon. There is always something for everyone with over 16 product categories from which to choose! The Grommet’s goal is to help small, innovative businesses succeed by reaching a group of highly motivated consumers who look for and appreciate “grommets". Their goal is to level the playing field so the best companies can win. Until The Grommet came along, that was simply not always the case. It was very difficult for Makers to get attention and be noticed in the saturated marketplace where big companies rule. The Grommet has succeeded in attracting a powerful community of Makers, Retailers and Consumers whose enthusiasm for suggesting, sharing, and buying Grommets ensures the survival and growth of the ground-breaking companies behind them.
The Grommet believes they have the the responsibility to shape the world with care and thought. As consumers, we also have tremendous power. We get to decide which businesses to support. Being on The Grommet feels kind of like being on Shark Tank, only the consumers decide what succeeds and no one is mean to you on National TV....a win-win for all! Please support us in celebrating this amazing new opportunity. Share this post with friends and family to #Spreadtheword!
