Why Shop Ethically?


​You can know you avoided supporting f​orced labor or exploitation in the products you buy.


You get to support causes such as fighting human trafficking, and giving a hand up to widows and refugees.


You will treasure each product you purchase because you will know who made it and the story behind it.​

How Do I Get Started?


Change just ONE purchase.  Switching all of your shopping to ethically-made products can be overwhelming.  So, pick just one item you regularly shop for and start buying that item from an ethical brand.  (See "Change One Shopping Habit" for the impact that switch can have.)


Shop SECONDHAND. It is easy, local, helps the environment, prevents more products being produced unethically, and it is cheap! (To learn more, see "How to Shop Secondhand.")
