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. 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.
Sustainable Marketplace is, quite literally, a marketplace for sustainable products. Much like the market in the old town square and modern day shopping plazas, but with sustainability at its core.
Our purpose is to connect the fast growing group of eco-conscious consumers with the equally increasing number of innovative brands, retailers and service providers focusing on sustainability. We want to be the leading marketplace for anything and everything needed to live, work and play for a sustainable future; we want to help make sustainability mainstream.
We believe our community will benefit all members. By joining as a group our sustainability message is inevitably amplified, so while we'll continue to attract our existing customers, we can now also expect new traffic to our stores. The cross promotion that is inherent to a 'one stop shop' (customers may book an eco holiday, buy sustainable cleaning products and organic clothing, or enquire about installing solar panels - all in the one visit) is bound to increase brand awareness and sales for all retailers on the marketplace.
As we are a dedicated sustainability marketplace and want to ensure that all products on our website adhere to the same guidelines, we have created our Seller Standards & Sustainability Guidelines for you to read before you sign up to become a member.
