There are currently a lot of barriers to purchasing sustainable fashion
Often have smaller selection and release only a couple collections a year to put emphasis towards clothing quality and extended lifespan
Unlike fast fashion, which dominates malls, stores, and marketplaces, sustainable fashion is much more dispersed and not easy to find.
Many brands frequently feign their credibility through “greenwashing.” The lack of transparency in fashion makes directing consumers to truly sustainable brands much harder.
While we might not resemble the faces you expect behind a sustainability movement, our unique perspective allows us to elevate the ordinary customer looking to take the steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle. We believe that becoming a more sustainable shopper shouldn’t be restricted by income level, gender or race. Our experience in building unique user experiences combined with our knowledge of sustainable fashion learned from industry experts, make us the ideal candidates to make shopping sustainable as easy as possible.
