Why this business was started
We decided to start this business because of the climate emergency going on. We as consumers are purchasing products that harm the environment. After looking to buy more eco-friendly products, we began to notice there was no online store to find all the products we needed in one spot. So then we chose to make our own store to help give ethical consumers a platform to shop.
The reason of selling this business
We love this business and see a lot of potential in it. The issue is, we are students and are both going off to college soon, and can't be running it along with completing masters level courses. We know the environment and the store will be in better hands if we just sell it for a cheap price. We only hope the future owners care for the environment!
What's involved in running this business
Activities involved in operating this business are running advertising campaigns, ordering from suppliers, fulfilling orders, running advertising campaigns, and managing social media platforms. While these are a lot of tasks they often take about 10 minutes to do each task well daily after the first week or so.

Why use Exchange?
Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores
Verified listing data
The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.
Secure messaging platform
You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.
Encrypted payment capture
Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.
Take time to inspect the business
Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.
Safe store transfer
When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
