Pure citizen: socially conscious shopping

Do you like shopping subscription services, such as ideeli and rue la la, that offer steep discounts on your favorite brands?  Well let me introduce you to an eco-friendly, socially conscious version of these websites:  Pure Citizen.

Sign up for Pure Citizen emails and you’ll receive access to discounted prices on premium items — including apparel, accessories, beauty supplies, books, home goods and more.  A new brand goes on sale each day and is available at that price for 72 hours.  Pure Citizen is different from other similar services, however, in that they source exclusively from socially and environmentally conscious companies.  Furthermore, when making a purchase, you have the option to donate a percentage of your savings to charity — a new beneficiary is chosen each week.

At the moment, there are sales on Hearts of Darkness shoes, Mat & Nat handbags, SIGG water bottles, and Yoreganics laundry items.  And I must say, the handbags and shoes are completely fashion forward; no hippie-chic aesthetic to be seen!

Anyway, that is all.  Just wanted to share this little gem I’ve discovered!

    A similar flash sale site providing eco-friendly fashion and beauty products at huge discounts is LovingEco.com. They also donate 3% of all sales to various organizations!
