Every conscious brand, store and other initiatives are worthy to pay a visit some time. Unfortunately we live in a fast society where we have little time to do great things. That's why MUMSTER found it necessary to spare you some precious time and select the greatest conscious webshops. Ofcourse this has everything to do with taste, price and variety in choice. We all love a website where you can buy everything at once, right?
1. People Tree
People Tree purchases the majority of its Fair Trade products from marginalized producer groups in the developing world.
We also guarantee most of our purchasing is committed to the World Fair Trade Organization and Fair Trade standards.
Only the using of fair materials and producing great products, isn't enough. We have a very long production chain, so every piece has been worked on by many people. The sewing of the garments will be a craft till this day.
3. Kings of Indigo
The name K.O.I came from founder Tony Tonnaer’s favorite tattoo, a koi fish on his right shoulder in remembrance of his mother. Koi fish are intelligent creatures and they tend to swim against the stream which is a strong metaphor for the rebellion that comes with a denim lifestyle. In Japan the Koi stands for luck, love and perseverance.
4. Charlie + Mary
Charlie + Mary is the pioneer of True Fashion and has a strong believe that a better fashion industry where clothes can be worn with pride and confidence is possible. Because you know that what you wear is made with respect for humans, the environment and animals.
5. Take it slow

“To me, sustainability is being mindful. First and foremost, it is about making and growing something in an ethical and sustainable manner, or recycling and reusing if not. I also want to make sure that everyone in the production chain is being rewarded fairly for what they do, without being exploited.” — Gosia Piatek, Founder & Creative Director.
Certifications are not our ultimate goal. They are minimum standards and embody preliminary stages towards social and environmental objectives. They cannot be considered as the optimal result. They are however a minimum control initiated and monitored by a third party and are a rough guide to an evolving path. For Veja they are a starting point to facilitate the bigger picture.
