FAQ - Why should I buy from you when similar products are cheaper from other vendors?
That is a great question! Here are our thoughts on it and a bit about how we are different by design.
Let's be honest, you are absolutely right! You most certainly can buy similar products from our competitors for cheaper. The vast majority of businesses selling on other marketplaces are simply in it to generate a profit. Their goal is to make as much money for themselves as possible. We have no problem with their views and their choice to run a company based on profit driven methodology. It's literally what built the economy we all enjoy. We however view capitalism as a means to an end, not the end goal itself. Our goal is to make a difference for our planet which is why we have chosen to operate under a mission driven methodology.
Our prices are higher because in the global economy of razor thin margins for consumer goods, we have set out to donate a portion of our profits to an ever growing list of charities and nonprofit organizations helping to clean and conserve our precious environment.
