Are you buying from a sweat factory unknowingly?
If you have never given much thought to the clothes you are wearing, like how and where it was made, you might be facing a guilt inducing reality. In our consumer run country, things like “sweat factory” and “fair trade” are often pushed to the back of our minds. It’s not always easy to find this information even if you do decide to do some digging.
EthicalBox is here to change your shopping experience by allowing you to choose vendors based on your personal values. They’re a company that sells goods made ethically by respecting the workers who create the items as well as the environment when the items are being made, among other things. Their mission is “To make ethical shopping as easy as possible, providing beautiful and functional products that won’t cost us the earth, our health, or the rights of our fellow human beings.”
They’re kind of like Etsy for ethical vendors. If you’re a seller, you can go on EthicalBox and create a seller profile and begin listing the items you wish to sell. You will be able to sell from anywhere and have the items shipped to the UK, and EthicalBox will handle all payments for you.
Determine your ethical standards and search instantly
When you visit their website, you can easily determine what your ethical standards are. Do you want your consumer goods to be vegan or hand-made, organic or recycled material? They have their items listed with clear categories, so you know exactly what you are buying and what it stands for.
Their vendors must adhere to ethical criteria which is laid out explicitly for the buyer. For instance, for a seller to list an item in the “Fair Trade” category, they must provide certification to EthicalBox from a credible Fair Trade organization. In order to label your jewelry or hardware “Conflict Free,” you must show that your items have not come from areas with known human rights abuse.
They have plenty of merchandise to peruse but EthicalBox is UK based, so getting these items shipped to America with currency exchange rates might make it unfeasible for the American shopper. However, the clothing is pretty hip street fashion and worth a look. Hopefully, they will have the chance to expand so they can appeal to a broader range of clientele.
Most of us are already making efforts to move towards living with ethical standards by adopting a more sustainable lifestyle and buying chemical free products. Companies like EthicalBox are looking to help us make an even bigger impact when purchasing our fashionable items.
