Brightly Scout Program FAQ

Thank you for expressing interest in our Scouts program.

We're thrilled to have you on this journey with us, and can't wait to have your help to change the world!

What We Need:

Our new platform will feature 3 different types of content that we need your help scouting

  1. Recycled Articles or Reviews from other Sources
  2. Original Articles or Reviews
  3. Scouted Ethical Products + Brands

Why We're Doing This

We believe that people can change the world, but it's hard to know how. There is so much information out there — we're going to help consumers sift through stories, brands, and products to understand HOW and WHY they can and should make a difference in the world, every single day.

How the Program Works

Every week, we'll send out an assignment based on what you're interested in contributing.

  • Recycled content always sends views + attribution back to the original source
  • You pick what you'd like to contribute and help add to the platform every week
  • Our automated system makes the process easy and headache free
  • By helping scout, you're spreading awareness of ethical + sustainable lifestyle tips, brands, and products, helping the world create change!
