Having a high quality of life does not have to come at the expense of the environment or any living being on this planet for that matter. With the impact of our modern lifestyles evidently altering the course of the earth’s long-term sustainability, it is important that we focus on finding ways to counteract these effects.
As such, eco-friendly decision-making and behaviours are conscious choices. In fact, there are a variety of ways in which one can consciously approach their life preferences in eco-friendly, people-friendly or animal-friendly ways.
We present the concept of #ConsciousBuying which is about respecting the limits of the earth's capacity to provide and about making people more conscious about their buying power and how it in turn can influence and trigger an even greater social awareness as well as have a lasting eco-friendly effect on people all over the world. We believe we can enrich lives and ensure a healthy future while also reducing our impact on the environment in our own small way by providing you with choices that confirm and echo this belief. This eco-friendly mind set has become the norm in most countries today but their are other issues that challenge us in making this world a better place.
Ethical fashion highlights not only environmental issues associated with manufacturing practices and processes but touches on the subject of working conditions and wages of workers in the developing countries associated with outsourcing for companies in developed countries. The fashion industry exemplifies the challenges associated with global manufacturing: low wages, "flexible" contracts and sweatshop conditions. Informal garment and textile workers often experience isolation, invisibility and lack of power, especially those who produce from their homes. Also small enterprises and individual workers must compete in an increasingly insecure and competitive environment. With that in mind we also search for local products that cannot compete otherwise with larger global brands
Whether it’s organic beauty, natural home decor, local delicacies and drinks, sustainable ethical fashion or even electronically transferrable gifts.
We open the door to the treasures for a sustainable and socially aware world. We source local products produced with integrity, under ethical work practices that are not only creative but also uphold responsible manufacturing practices.
We aspire to the “Conscious Buying” mindset becoming the norm around the world that should be the basis on which we make buying decisions today.
• Conscious about environmental factors.
• Conscious about the quality of employment that production companies offer their employees.
• Conscious about innovation brought about by young entrepreneurs, artists and designers that need support in vast and competitive world of production.
