Our Story

Through our own personal interests and values, we spent a great deal of time in the last few years finding ways to live more sustainably and reduce our household’s carbon footprint. We made quite a few, mostly small, changes to the way we did things and found that even seemingly insignificant adjustments had quite a profound effect. How ironic: when it comes to shrinking our carbon footprint, small steps can have a big impact!

The more we looked into it, the more we realised it would be great to be part of a community where we could take it all a little further and do our part for the planet. That was how the idea of a marketplace for sustainable products and services came about.

Our Purpose

Sustainable Marketplace is, quite literally, a marketplace for sustainable products. Much like the market in the old town square and our modern day shopping plazas, but with sustainability at its core.

We want to provide a space for the fast growing group of eco-conscious consumers to connect with the equally increasing number of innovative brands, retailers and service providers focusing on sustainability. Ultimately, we want Sustainable Marketplace to provide all the products and services you need to live, work and play sustainably.

Anything and everything from food and drink essentials, cleaning products, personal care, re-usable cups, fashion and accessories, to household furniture and garden materials, recycled bricks, ‘green’ architecture and design, eco holidays, restaurants, electric vehicles, sustainable banking and fund management.

We see our strength in numbers. The more products and services are offered on our website, the more customers will visit, and the easier it will ultimately be for new visitors to find the marketplace and access the products and services. Amplifying the sustainability message, helping to accelerate change and makesu stainability mainstream, that is our purpose!

We're currently a small, personable and dedicated team that has partnered with Marketplacer, the world’s leading marketplace platform. While we're starting small, the platform is mature and robust, and is designed to support our growing community of providers and consumers of all things sustainable.
