If you're someone who likes to be a trend-setter and believes in creating a new kind of status quo, you're in the right place! We are here to help you learn about ethical and sustainable fashion choices. Our company combs through the missions, profiles, and products of ethical fashionistas for you and presents them on the site. If you're looking to get your hands dirty and take what you're learning here and put it into practice, here are a couple of recommendations:
Farmers markets sell more than poppies and zucchini. Many farmers markets now have vendors selling jewelry, aprons, skirts, and everything in between. These vendors tend to be well-connected and interested in sharing their stories and merchandise. If you've never been to a farmers market or don't know where to find one near you, the United States Department of Agriculture has a database full of farmers markets around the country!
Craft fairs tend to be pop-up events, meaning that they are less consistent than farmers markets. Craft fairs focus on nonperishable items — more soaps, postcards, and necklaces than food or flowers. If you're in Texas, you can support female-identifying and nonbinary artists through CraftHER markets. You can also look for craft fairs around the United States through databases like CraftMaster. Like the vendors at farmers markets, craft fair retailers are well-connected and in-the-know about where and when you can find the kind of products and merchants you're searching for.
