Our Story & Who we work with
We are committed to find, promote and support brands that are working for the common good. We aspire to live in a world where businesses are leading the way for a healthy, fair, and equitable society. It is our mission to connect these brands with you, the ethical consumer who wants to make the world better with every purchase you make.
In everything we do we try to adhere to the highest standards of integrity and transparency. We are not perfect and we ask you to help us be better. If we failed you at any point, please let us know and we promise to take responsibility for our actions and make lasting changes.
This question is our reason for existence, so please excuse the long answer. First, we look for businesses that are certified by/members of organizations that we trust. These organizations conduct rigorous onboarding and evaluations for each business they work with, and often require third-party audits to maintain the certification. Not all certifications are equal, which is why we look to organizations like Fair World Project who do the work to understand the benefits (and limitations) of third-party certifiers.
Fairtrade International and the Fair Trade Federation affiliated businesses maintain the highest ethical standards for businesses that are working with producers, farmers and artisans around the world. These standards include fair wages, no child labour and decent working conditions. We have worked with businesses certified as fair trade through these two organizations since day one.
Other certifications that we look for and consider as meaningful indicators are the Small Producers Symbol, Fair for Life, and the World Fair Trade Organization.
B Corporation is a membership organization where businesses have to complete a company-wide assessment and receive a minimum score of 80 to become a member. This assessment looks at the impact of the business on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. Not all B Corps are created equal, but it is a great starting place to know that a brand is making commitments to people and planet.
Some brands in our store are not members of any of third-party organizations, which means we have to conduct a more in-depth assessment of their values. First, we look for transparency around their production, supply-chains and partnerships, before verifying these claims with references. Every brand completes a vendor assessment and is interviewed by our team. In this case, the brands we work with often have direct trading relationships and long-term partnerships with artisan and producer communities. These are often small businesses who give back directly to the communities they work with or provide employment to marginalized groups, such as refugees or youth at-risk of homeless.
We do our best to tell the story of the good behind our products. You can visit individual brand pages to learn more about the communities they work with and the values they are committed to.
We do not charge businesses to have their products on our site, instead we charge a commission on the products sold through our site. We only make money when our social enterprise vendors also make money.
Send us an email at email@example.com. We are always happy to hear from new social enterprises. You will be asked to fill out an application form and to schedule a short interview with one of our team members.
