What kinds of shops are included in the collective?
The shops you’ll see listed in our directory were all curated by the CSC team in order to bring you fresh new options for online shopping. We want you to be able to find what you’re looking in fashion, skincare, home décor, and more. We’re adding new shops every day, and we look forward to expanding our categories. See them all on our search page.
Can I shop directly from this website?
No, you must go to each brand’s individual website in order to make any purchases. Once you leave our site, all interactions will take place between you and the brand.
Are all CSC Members based in the USA?
Nope. This is not a “Made in USA” exclusive website. As long as the brand is socially and environmentally conscious, it does not matter where they’re located. In fact, we love bringing you quality goods from across the globe. We’ll let you know when we include an international shop in our collective, so you can learn more about their shipping policies and times on their own sites.
How do you choose your members?
Our directory of shops is made up of both shops we’ve long admired, recently discovered, and those who have submitted their brand to us. We’re as inclusive a possible, so consumers can choose which they’d like to shop from and support. We spend time talking with the owners of each shop to ensure that they meet our guidelines for consciousness; in other words, that they source their materials sustainably and ethically, that they either hand-make their items or pay someone a fair wage to do so, and that if they sell skincare/beauty products or pantry items, they use natural and safe ingredients. Major bonus if they give back, too!
As far as logistics, we prefer all our members have their own self-hosted e-commerce websites for shoppers to purchase with ease. Learn more about our mission here.
