Founded in 2013, Redemption Market partners with companies that are sustainable, ethically sourced, and fair trade. Its tagline? A small boutique with a big heart. This is essentially your one-stop shop for all things ethically sourced. For example, one brand they sell is P.F. Candle Co. This soy candle brand gives back to causes like ending homelessness, ending hunger, and empowering women. In Redemption Market’s online boutique, you can find turquoise earrings, reusable shopping bags, stationery, and more.

Yoga Democracy crafts sustainable leggings and other activewear made out of recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets. The company also uses a no-water dyeing process that it claims reduces waste. Find leggings, shirts, and sports bras in plenty of colorful prints and solid colors. If you visit the Scottsdale boutique, you can even see a micro-production facility (although most of Yoga Democracy’s clothing is made in Cave Creek and Kenya). Yoga Democracy is a member of 1% for the Planet. This organization recognizes businesses that give 1% of their profits to environmental causes.

Fun fact: Country star and frequent bell bottom wearer Lainey Wilson is a fan of Yoga Democracy. She often wears the company’s leggings when she performs her hits. You can even shop her outfits featured in this link.

Keep Nature Wild creates outdoor apparel and accessories and designs them all right here in the Grand Canyon State. For every product sold, the company claims its team picks up one pound of trash. When customers make a purchase, they also receive a biodegradable trash bag in the hopes of encouraging them to get outside and pick up trash. Keep Nature Wild sells a plethora of shirts emblazoned with sayings like “I’d hike that,” “It’s all good in the woods,” and “Wild” in addition to hats, water bottles, fanny packs made out of recycled nylon, and stickers. Read more about the company’s dedication to sustainability here. You can purchase this company’s products online, of course, but also at retailers like Bunky Boutique.

Fun fact: This company also holds clean-ups throughout the country. Read about them here.

Earthbound has a variety of partnerships with charitable organizations. For 10 years, the company has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation and donates five cents anytime a customer doesn’t use a plastic or paper bag. To date, the company has donated nearly $300,000 to the foundation that’s devoted to protecting trees. Shoppers can find a variety of clothing with a free-spirited, bohemian feeling—think printed red wide-leg crochet pants, blue jumpsuits, and tie-dye pants.

Althea West

The idea for Carefree’s Althea West was born when founder Natalie Vescio was stuck at home in 2020. Realizing that travel might not always be something accessible to everyone, she decided to bring plenty of goods from around the world to Carefree. She describes her shop as being “consciously curated.” The clothing in her store is inspired by her time spent in Palm Beach, Florida. Find men’s jeans and printed jeans alongside kaftans, printed maxi dresses, and even a jungle print sarong for women.
