Because Every Step Matters!
This isn’t just our slogan, it’s our commitment. It’s what grounded people was founded on and we stand behind our promise. No discounts will be applied to our products as we do not believe in forced buying, lots of companies will send non-stop emails trying to convince people to purchase products based on the fact that they’re on sale. We believe that one’s decision should not be swayed by anything other than the fact they stand united with the same morals as the company they choose to support. That’s why we pay premium wages to the small group of artisans who produce our products and use ethically source materials for our production. We care about the environment and the people who produce our products and hope that you share the same enthusiasm for sustainability as grounded people.
Grounded People's core principles are based on the ethical treatment of all living beings. Taking sustainable actions to work with mother nature instead of against her. All of their production from start to finish is 100% vegan and is based in Vancouver, British Columbia on the west-coast of Canada. The idea for grounded people came to fruition when the co-founder and CEO was traveling abroad and experienced the negative impacts of the fashion industry first hand.
