Looking to Discover Some New Themed Online Boutiques?
Onlineshopping is growing so quickly that it's hard to remember a world where it didn't exist. While the in person experience is here to stay, there are also some great online stores that may carry some ethical finds that may be hard for you to track down on your local Sunday browsing.
We wanted to share a few of our favorites here. Each of them have a different theme and focus, and all of them are trusted by the people who work with them.
Buy Good Feel Good started out as a live event all under one roof. Focused on fairly traded, certified and proven brands, BGFG champions products that you can trust, love and cherish. From fairly traded honey to Brave Soles (!) they have created a marketplace where brands' stories are highlighted and their partners' values (such as Fair Trade and B Corp) are front and center.
We personally love their focus on helping you understand why your purchases matter.
Buy Me Once was founded by Tara Button, a writer based in the U.K., after she received a Le Creuset pot for her birthday. The gift got her questioning her purchases across all areas of her life. Was she buying things to last and putting her dollars into items that would journey with her through life?
We personally love how Buy Me Once researches brands and products and have stringent guidelines on what they will sell.
Sam and Lance was created by Canadian sisters, Veronica and Alora. They named their store after their grandmothers and how they inspired them to love beautiful things.
We first fell in love with Sam and Lance because of their focus on women owned and crafted products. We also love their subscription box and the beautiful products that they source.
Done Good is focused on representing brands that fight poverty, climate change and believe in quality, fairness and sustainability.
Their daily blog is inspiring and we personally recommend downloading their browser plug in to discover ecofriendly and ethical alternatives while shopping on Google, Amazon and other major retailers.
The Green Living Store also started as a live event and has made the successful pivot to launching an online marketplace. They are focused on brands and products that are green, sustainable and have a story to tell.
We personally love the wide variety of products they have and their long standing relationships they have had with their brands.
Choobs is a start up boutique, launching this summer. Focused on brands that do good, they champion stories and small brands.
We personally love how they provide the option to shop by mission on their site and include some lesser known options of brands focused on cancer relief, mental health and animal conservation.
United by Blue is already known by many of us. Brave Soles has been proud to be part of their brands that they are featuring because of what UBB stands for.
With a clear mission on rescuing plastics out of the oceans of our world, UBB has managed to create the opportunity for those of us who may not have access to do it ourselves (hello Saskatchewan and Montana, we see you!) through our purchasing power.
We love their commitment to their "we quit" statements and how they are transparent about their practices.
