Vendor Spotlight: Kirrin Finch
Vendor Spotlight: United By Blue
We didn’t grow up wanting to be fashion designers. We were both tomboys, and only really cared about making sure our outfits allowed us to ride bikes and climb trees. But as we grew up, it became obvious that mainstream retailers didn’t cater to us.
Vendor Spotlight: Ethel Studio
For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways through company organized and hosted cleanups.
Vendor Spotlight: Faburiq
We rescue fabrics from an unsuitable fate of going to landfill and slowly transform them by hand into compelling textile mosaics for your home to embrace everyday.
Vendor Spotlight: Dandy Farmer
Faburiq's mission is to keep in existence and maintain the history and craft of Japanese fabrics which are naturally organic and plant-based; methods that have not changed in more than 500 years.
Vendor Spotlight: The Fillery
Care for and increase your plant collection! Not only does this reduce your carbon footprint, but changes the way you interact and think about the health of plants in general.
Vendor Spotlight: teapigs
I look at The Fillery as a place that is at the intersection of the Zero Waste and Slow Food movements. Our main objective is to reduce packaging and food waste, and we believe good goods should be accessible to all.
Vendor Spotlight: Susan Allbert (Various Mediums Inc.)
We care deeply about the communities from where we source our tea leaves, and donate a percentage of every pack of our english breakfast blend to The Point Foundation which benefits at risk young people in Rwanda.
Vendor Spotlight: Wax & Wane Fiber
My work tracks the theme of actions and consequences. It is about ownership and migration and how these concepts affect our environments.
Vendor Spotlight: Weaving Hand
We create naturally dyed products in our studio made for the body and home. We also teach others the joys of natural dyes and how to dye their own fiber at home.
Vendor Spotlight: Nuno Gift Wrap
In Zero Waste Weaving, scrap yardage is cut into strips and used as the weft material in this specialized weaving technique. We help designers eliminate waste while adding one of kind pieces to their collections.
Vendor Spotlight: The Health of Nations INC
We aim to reduce unnecessary gift wrap waste by providing reusable fabric gift wrap. And don't let our silky fabrics fool you, they're all made of post consumer recycled plastic.
Vendor Spotlight: RUNA
One simple principle underlies our organic production ethos: our products are produced to the highest standards to promote environmental protection and ecological conservation.
Vendor Spotlight: BODY STUFF
All RUNA products are Organic, Fair Trade, and non-GMO certified; but our commitment to environmental and ethical practices goes above and beyond certifications.
Vendor Spotlight: Kate Conlon & Sustainable Printmaking
WE TRULY CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT. We strive to be as eco-conscious as we can with any choice throughout our business, and we hire and collaborate with businesses that adopt similar philosophies.
Introducing: DO SOMETHING
Kate Conlon has played a crucial role in spearheading a movement to make traditional art processes better for the environment and for the health of artists.
We would like to introduce our newest website content: DO SOMETHING.
The fashion industry is the second highest polluting in the world. Fast fashion uses some of the harshest chemicals, billions of litres of precious water, not to mention the factories employing people in some of the worst working conditions
A Note from the Creators
As global citizens, we wield our power to affect change through conscious consumerism. Each time we make a purchase, we directly support business activities that have measurable effects on our society and environment
