We were recently introduced to Hearts by a fellow sustainable cosmetics company, and were immediately struck by the mission and aesthetics of this online shopping venue. Like many online stores, they offer a great selection of fashion and accessories, but unlike most others, everything they carry is made with the wellbeing of the makers, community and environment in mind. They see fashion as a vehicle for positive social change.
Each product for sale on Hearts comes with a story about its origin and its maker. Check out this great example of an upcycled necklace and the artist who created it.
Here is Hearts’ mission, in their words: “Hearts is a movement for change. Inspired to change the way products are designed, created, and sold. Hearts hopes to help people realize that they have the power to stimulate a shift by changing the way they spend their money. Hearts work with over 2,000 artisans from all over the world who along with our design team, co-create all of our handbags and accessories. Join Hearts in the sustainable fashion movement and use your purchasing power to create change!”
