Why do we do what we do?
Well to be honest we’re just one small business that likes helping other small businesses like yours create more financial security by selling on Amazon.
But there is something more…
We’re concerned about climate change, economies based on unsustainable consumption and growing inequality. We want to do our part in helping solve these big issues to help shift the market towards valuing a more sustainable economy that benefits everyone.
We’re on a Mission to increase the market share of products that create a better world with a focus on the small businesses that help create strong, local communities.
Our hope is to, along the way, contribute to the building of a truly circular economy that grows sustainably and helps bring good health to everyone in the world.
We are in pursuit of a tipping point. The point at which the success and market dominance of small, sustainable and social brands on Amazon can no longer be ignored. The point when Amazon, one of the largest companies in the world will be forced to accelerate its Sustainability Agenda in response to overwhelming customer demand.
We are so tired of a world of commodities. Affordability is important but so to is quality and our pursuit of lower prices should never result in suffering anywhere in the world.
