Impact Economy

Are you inspired by online stores that empower people to shop their values? We are, because that’s what the impact economy is all about.

Good Logos

There are different “shop for good” purpose-driven models among the members of the GoodCarts Network:

  • Sustainable products and processes – Organic, recycled/upcycled materials, natural materials, comprehensive sustainable processes, climate offsets, sustainable fashion, ethical fashion, eco-fashion, etc.
  • Fair trade – Workers and artisans get paid a living wage and cooperative models invest in their communities
  • Buy one, give one – People buy knowing a related product is given to someone in need
  • Percent to charity – Revenue donated to a charitable cause
  • Charity run stores – Nonprofit store selling sustainable and/or traditional goods to raise money for their good cause
  • Social enterprises – Often a nonprofit producing products for work force development among disadvantaged groups
  • Ethical values and social goals – Not tested on animals/cruelty free, no GMOs, vegan, indigenous products, no child labor, empowering women, employing refugees, the disabled, etc. and more
  • B Corporations – Public benefit corporations – for-profit social enterprises with legally chartered public benefit goals

As we invite stores to join GoodCarts, we look for affirmative social good or sustainable mission commitments on their websites not just that fact that you sell “good” products.

If you are not sure if you qualify, simply sign-up and we will review your store.

To your right is our extended “pre-approved” list of organizations that stores might be members of or have products they sell certified.

For additional related links beyond those that GoodCarts candidate stores might be members of or certified by, see the key organizations list from Fashion Revolution.

Missing anyone? Let us know of other “good” membership organizations stores of which prospective GoodCarts may be members or certified.
