Erthie is passionate about helping to build thriving and sustainable communities around the world. Erthie.com's mission is to build an online marketplace dedicated to fair, ethical, and sustainable products. As a mission-driven Benefit Corporation, Erthie makes community impact by;
- Rewarding Ethical Organizations; offering a flat 2% commission fee model to Non-Profit and Fair Trade organizations (the lowest fee structure available online!).
- Donating a Portion of Profits; Erthie has committed to donating a portion of our profits to community and environmental causes.
- Providing Interactive Educational Materials Online (for Free!); quality educational information about natural and sustainable products is an important part of any thriving community. Erthie believes that building this education portal helps consumers make the right choices for them and their families.
- Promoting Erthie Non-Profits' Volunteer Opportunities; In addition to Erthie's corporate volunteerism, we're creating tools that allow Erthie's non-profits (such as many fair trade shops) to share their local volunteer opportunities!
