We Source Eco Friendly Products So You Don’t Have To


Our goal is to take the hard work out of finding sustainable products that are good for us, are good for the environment and help giving back to those in need.

We take time to carefully select sustainable brands for their certified organic ingredients and all-natural formulas. Our products are handmade by small-batch artisans or groups that are giving back to communities and non-profit organizations.

 


What Makes Items Sustainable

Sustainable products are defined by being worker-friendly, planet-friendly, durable, and suitable for all seasons. They are typically eco-friendly fabrics that can have recycled and reused materials. The companies that make sustainable products are typically known for providing decent working conditions and fair wages.

Worker-Friendly Workplaces

Sustainable brands focus on protecting the environment but can emphasize human rights. Truly sustainable home products must be also made in a way that is safe and healthy for the workers.

You can often find the fair-trade label on these types of eco friendly green products. Sustainable manufacturers must be dedicated to promise all of their artisans a living wage in order to bear this label. They also must guarantee safe working environments and eco-friendly processes.

You can visit your preferred sustainable skincare or clothing brand’s websites to find specific information regarding their labor practices. You can also find out about the company’s standards for its supply chain, what employees are provided, and where the products are made. If the information is not easily found, feel free to email them your questions.

Eco-friendly fabrics

Polyester, synthetic fibers, acrylic, viscose rayon, and conventional cotton are fabrics often to be avoided. These materials are toxic because of the hazardous processes that produce them. Cotton can be tainted with herbicides and pesticides. Synthetic fibers shred microfibers which end up polluting the waterways. You know what to avoid now, and you can know alternatives to viscose rayon like Tencel from sustainably-sourced eucalyptus trees, linens, silk, and wool because they are considered low-impact sustainable textiles.

Natural, Vegan and Organic Ingredients

You should seek out sustainable skin-care products that are made with natural ingredients and no questionable chemicals like some traditional skincare that irritate skin. Always remember to avoid things like artificial fragrance, phthalates, sulfates, and formaldehyde, as well as mineral oil, parabens, and silicone.

Certifications

Sustainable businesses can receive several different certifications for eco-friendly products and human rights practices. Skincare organic ingredients can be certified by Ecocert Canada and the certification that guarantees artisans safety and fair pay.
