I was on the hunt for clothing brands that made an effort to do good in the world. Whether they donated to a cause, donated their product to people in need, or made their clothing in a conscious way, I wanted to find them.
This was back in 2018, and it was hard! I googled some relevant keywords, then dug through blog after blog. If I found a blog that highlighted some of these brands, I’d have to visit the brand’s site to see if I liked its products. Usually, I was back to the blog and back to google search to find different brands.
Clicking through many different tabs is a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Fortunately, finding and shopping conscious clothing brands has become much easier since 2018!
There are new ways to shop these brands now. You can go through blogs, affiliate sites, or marketplaces.
Blogs tell you about the brand, but don’t show you products. Affiliate sites do show you a brand’s products, but when you want to buy the product you are redirected to the brand’s site to checkout. This is better than blogs, but it’s still an annoyance to bounce around different websites.
The best way to shop conscious clothing brands is through marketplaces because they allow you to discover and shop all on one site. You can read about a brand, see its products, then checkout without opening any new tabs. It’s a one-stop shop.
Here are some marketplaces you can use to shop conscious clothing…
There are a handful of marketplaces that sell conscious brands, but Choobs is the only marketplace that focuses on clothing.
You can shop Men’s Clothing, Women’s Clothing, and Accessories like bags, jewelry, or headbands. You can also shop by social mission – like environmental causes, poverty relief, or animal conservation.
Choobs sells conscious brands like Headbands Of Hope – which donates headbands to children with illnesses for every headband you buy, Pi Yoga – which sells loungewear with a beach vibe and donates 10% of profits to sea turtle conservation, and Happiness Project – which sells streetwear and donates 15% of profits to mental health.
Made Trade is a marketplace that sells eco-friendly and fair trade goods. You can shop Home + Furniture, Clothing, and Accessories. You may also shop by value like American Made or Fair Trade.
