Start With What Matters To You

One of the simplest ways you can make an impact today is by supporting brands that tackle the issues most important to you. 

Not sure where to start? We’ve created a way for you to easily discover the brands, people and products that best align with how you roll.

All the products featured on Stride are discovered, researched and vetted by our team to ensure that they deliver against eight core values chosen to contribute to UN Sustainable Development Goal 12: "Ensure sustainable production and consumption patterns", as well as goals: 5, 8, 13, 14 and 15.

Be it via their social or environmental processes, the materials they use (or avoid!), their transparency, or their positive social contribution... these brands deliver.

Small steps lead to giant strides. So start with what matters most to you...

ETHICAL

The ethical businesses featured on Stride work hard to ensure that the people who make their products are treated fairly and with respect, paid a working wage (at the very least) and are able to work in safe and hygienic conditions.⁠

So please get behind these brands and help put people before profit.⁠

SUSTAINABLE

Keen on having a planet to enjoy in your twilight years?

Well then, put your support behind this crew of passionate operators turning old-school production practices on their arse to ensure that they reduce (or completely eliminate) the negative impact that they have on the environment.

ARTISAN

For those who appreciate the skill, attention to detail and the wabi-sabi nature of pieces that are authentically designed and handcrafted by artisans.

Here you’ll find unique creations that take time, skill and passion to create.

MINIMAL WASTE

Trying to do your part to tackle the war on waste?

We’ve pulled together some minimal waste alternatives from brands focussed on doing their part to drastically reduce the amount of trash that ends up in landfills, incinerators, or the ocean.

VEGAN

No animals were harmed in the making or testing of these cruelty-free products.

So if you’re vegan or plant-based and lookingto ditch products associated with the use, exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals, these brands have got you covered.

UPCYCLED

Everything deserves a second chance. Let's hear it for the creative innovators who breathe new life into the pre-loved, the unwanted and the discarded.

Through the creative reuse and reimagining of waste and by-products, these brands add value and create products that give new meaning to old materials.

GIVES BACK

These brands recognise the importance of giving back.

Whether they reinvest or donate their profits to create positive change, have a direct social impact through their business practices, or are committed social enterprises, each of these brands has committed to supporting their communities, aligned charity organisations or environmental causes.

TRANSPARENT

Want to walk a mile in a company’s shoes before you hand over your wallet?

Cut through the BS. Opt for brands that are an open book when it comes to where, how and under what conditions their products are made.
