Looks like there’s a new kid on the block for cruelty-free and vegan products called Vegan Unite.
Vegan Unite is live and launched May 12th of this year. It’s a marketplace similar to Etsy but for all cruelty-free and vegan products from all around the world.
Here’s an interview with the Creator Cosondra Sjostrom.
What is Vegan Unite?
Vegan Unite is a marketplace for cruelty-free and vegan products. It’s a place where you can shop from people that are like-minded and purchase with a clear conscience. I encourage everyone to bookmark us and check back as new products and shops are being added daily.
How are you different then other online marketplaces?
As a marketplace, Vegan Unite empowers shoppers to help promote the lives of like-minded people by purchasing from them. As a community we need to support each other and start to create the change that we want in the world. It’s an evolution, this is just another step forward.
Who are ideal shoppers on Vegan Unite?
Honestly, anyone that cares enough to want purchase awesome cruelty-free items. Also, If someone needs to shop for a cruelty-free or vegan friend. Now you have a place to visit online to browse shops and items.
Who are ideal shop owners?
People that live the cruelty-free lifestyle and create products that are also cruelty-free. The products on our site range from food, clothes, pet food, cleaning supplies, cookbooks, jewelry, plants, furniture, craft supplies, DIY baskets, and even a Yard Sale section. The Yard Sale section is a place where people can resell new and used cruelty-free vegan items.
Do you have site wide Gift Certificates?
Yes we do. You can buy yourself or your friend a gift certificate to Vegan Unite and shop from any shop on the site.
Why did you name it Vegan Unite?
I debated over many names but Vegan Unite stuck with me. I wanted a name that would inspire unity, that I hope will also help create a strong community.
How does the site work for merchants?
We charge merchants a small percentage of sale just like other online marketplaces. We have no listing fees. We are also working with our shop owners to help them promote their products. We are starting to write articles on all of our shops to help the community get to know them better.
How does it feel to be launching Vegan Unite?
It’s exciting…thrilling really, but also stressful. I’ve been working on developing the concept and website for a long time now. It’s my baby and it’s finally going live. I almost can’t believe it.
Anything else you want to say?
Please bookmark us! I encourage anyone that lives the cruelty-free lifestyle and makes products to join our site as a merchant. Buy a Gift Certificate for yourself or a friend and shop all products on the site. Donate to us as we can always use the funds for site development and building a strong community.
