We are incredibly intentional with product curation for our marketplace. We spend hours on each product researching ingredients, packaging, company values, and commitment to sustainability. We have personally tested every product ourselves, and with a group of trusted friends and family, so you can feel confident in the products you choose. We care more about quality than quantity and aren’t here to push for more consumption. Instead, we believe in making easy and efficient swaps to reduce our waste and environmental impact.
Our products are selected based on a rigorous review to ensure alignment with our values:
Effective & High-quality
We want you to find the perfect sustainable swaps for your everyday essentials and know that the most important criterion for any sustainable alternative is that the product is just as (if not more) effective than the original. We never sacrifice effectiveness or quality, and we don’t expect you to either. All products in our marketplace have passed our personal efficacy and quality tests, and products are sourced from artisans that use the highest quality ingredients and artisanship.
Low-waste & Non-toxic
We care about ingredients, packaging and people, because they all matter for a healthier future. The VOLVERde team reviews product ingredients using the Environmental Working Group standards. On packaging, we work hard to reduce plastic packaged products where it is safe to do so. We know that we can’t recycle our way out of our pollution problem, so we constantly work with our brand partners to develop more sustainable, closed-loop options. VOLVERde also commits to zero-waste shipping. All orders will be shipped completely plastic-free using recyclable or biodegradable materials.
Support Responsible Sourcing & BIPOC Producers
We think of sustainability as impacting more than just our environment and human health. For us, sustainability is also about how products are made and their impact on our communities. Climate change, pollution, and toxic waste disproportionately affect communities of color, yet we are more likely to be excluded from the green movement. VOLVERde takes a holistic and equity-driven approach to sustainability, which is why we intentionally prioritize women-, black-, brown-, indigenous-, and POC-owned businesses. We want a world that is less polluted and more equitable. We want a more sustainable future that is built by strengthening and empowering our communities.
Celebrate La Cultura
Our cultural connection is everything, and we take pride in our roots. We want the Latinx community to feel seen and heard. We’ve created a space that doesn’t make you choose between caring for the environment and being your authentic self. Here, we honor our traditions and take action for our comunidad and the planet.
