- From Shawn Kemp, cofounder of ActionSprout.com
Really American is one of Ecowatch’s most prized social media partners. Once EcoWatch publishes a story and it begins to trend, Really American oftentimes picks up that story and not only creates a post that activates an audience to create change, but they motivate the masses to share their content, which then creates a ripple effect of generated awareness among individuals who would otherwise be left unaware. Really American has truly found their niche and we are thrilled that they have expanded to create a page centered around animals and their rapidly decreasing habitat. Looking forward to see what more is to come, love the memes, love the passion, and we are more happy than ever to have discovered ways to generate synergy between our two companies for the sake of our love for Pachamama, Mother Earth.
