Why Shop with us?
Well, because you’re a wonderful human being, of course! But also, because every purchase you make on our store has a positive environmental or social impact. It contributes directly to the income of a hardworking individual, a passionate undertaking, a cleaner environment, or a social cause.
In turn, we do your homework for you! We make responsible shopping easy, by doing in-depth research into a brand’s sustainability initiatives and values, so that you can shop with brands whose values align with yours.
Every product that’s featured on The Better India Shop follows a stringent onboarding process. Our enterprise partners are carefully vetted for authenticity, fair trade practices and ethical standards. Broadly, they aim to fulfill one or more of these criteria:
- They give a direct income to village artisans or members of marginalized communities.
They support traditional Indian arts and crafts.
- They are created by organizations that support people with disability.
- They create eco-friendly, sustainable or biodegradable products that are good for the environment
They promote upcycling, reuse and recycling, or make eco-friendly alternatives for daily use products.
- They create amazing organic, natural products that are chemical and preservative free, and made in ways that are eco-friendly and safe for the environment.
Many of our partners are first-time sellers online, and your support will give them a much needed leg-up to improve and expand their trade, and bring their craft into the mainstream!
