WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CONSCIOUS CONSUMER

Sustainable living is about respecting the limits of the earth’s capacity to provide.

Are you looking for solutions that lead to a simpler, way of living? What if there was a way to, not only, enrich your life, but also, ensure a healthy future for those less fortunate, while also reducing your impact on the environment.

Well, look no further, because Sustainable Organic World believes that the best way to change widespread problems like worker exploitation and environmental degradation is investing in ethical and small businesses. These businesses are not here to saturate the market, they’re here to replace it! Conscious consumerism is long-term capitalism at its best, gainfully, and rightfully, employing people who make the items that make your life easier.

Use Sustainable Organic World as a place to discover brands that really make a difference, without having to spend your whole entire day online searching for them. You know that when you walk into Whole Foods you’re going to find food that you can feel good about eating — but when you walk into a mall, it’s difficult to know if you can be proud to support the brands you’ll find there. We will help take the guesswork out of shopping for your accessories, jewelry, home-wares, and lifestyle products.

Every product on our site is sustainable, organic, green or cause based, helping people and our environment in some way. Some products provide meals for the hungry, some create fair trade jobs for women all throughout the world, some donate books to children without access to literature. And that barely scratches the surface. Whether it’s education, health, or the protection of vulnerable women — every product supports something positive, and has a story.

Sustainable Organic World is more than just your average website. It’s a place where you can explore and connect with your global village. Sharing in a common belief that it’s time for a change in how companies do business. Holding them accountable for the carbon footprint they leave behind.

Most of the fashion products on our site come from communities throughout the developing world, every inspired design is crafted by artisans, with love using local materials (usually natural or recycled) and time-honored skills by makers who have been honing their skills for years.

Every purchase improves the lives of these artisan makers, by supporting their craft and providing a fair, stable income. We offer a way for you to become part of the story, to shop your values and give gifts with meaning. Because this is bigger than us.

These artisans, many of whom belong to disenfranchised groups in developing countries, are fairly compensated and supported, so they can better support their families and communities. We’re continually seeking to find companies that use sustainable materials, like recycled leathers, tree-free paper and cast-off wood, as well as, processes and practices that reduce the negative impact, and create a positive one.

By choosing reusable and sustainable products, you, the consumer, protect acres of forests, reduce the waste that ends up in landfills and reduce their overall environmental footprint. Sustainable Organic World is a sensible, fashionable, and convenient step towards sustaining our environmental future. While long-term steps to permanently reduce pollution and protect our natural resources require large efforts on a global scale, each of us can play a part in saving our planet by making small changes in our home and work environments.

Our mission is to help people improve your quality of life by offering information and products for sustainable, organic living.

A higher quality of life, in our minds, means more time with family and friends, a lower cost of living, a toxin-free home and yard, access to wholesome food and safe drinking water, and more time spent in nature.

Sustainable living is about respecting the limits of the earth’s capacity to provide. We look for solutions that lead to a simpler, more self-sufficient way of living.

We are heading into a new paradigm in how we do business. Gone are the days when we just mindlessly consume, buy, dispose, consume, buy, dispose. We are looking for better, more environmentally-friendly ways to spend our money. The future is NOW! It’s time to evolve and start a conscious consumer revolution. We have all the technology, all the resources and all the knowledge we need to make our world a better place for future generations.
