How One of My Favorite Ethical E-Tailers Just Got Even More Awesome (And More Eco, Too!)

December 2, 2016

 

You may have heard me talk about Bead & Reel before, but if you’re not familiar, let me give you the lowdown. They are an ethical e-tailer (e-commerce retailer) that carries 100% vegan fashion items. Further to being fully vegan, everything that Bead & Reel carries fits one or more of the following ethical categories:

  • Fair Trade
  • Made in America
  • Organic
  • Recycled
  • Up-cycled
  • Zero Waste
  • Female Founded
  • Gives Back

So, needless to say, they’re pretty freakin’ awesome. I always manage to find unique, fashionable, timeless pieces while still keeping in line with my ethical buying standards. They also use recycled/recyclable packaging to ship our the orders which obviously made me one happy eco girl upon opening up my first package!

Bead & Reel’s Newest Addition 

Just when I thought they couldn’t get any cooler, Bead & Reel now has added an entire secondhand portion of their online shop called RESCUED. You can find secondhand items such as dresses, tops, pants, bags, shoes, and accessories; basically, anything you could possibly need in your wardrobe. The best part? These aren’t just any secondhand items, these are items that fit Bead & Reel’s ethical criteria mentioned above, in addition to being secondhand. As we already know, shopping pre-loved is always a sustainable choice since we are extending the life of garments and keeping them out of landfills. Now, shopping ethical pieces secondhand is probably the most eco-friendly and conscious way to shop that is currently available to us right now. Bead & Reel just took it to a whole new level of sustainability, and I LOVE it. We, as ethical consumers, really needed something like this. As far as I know, there are no other secondhand shops/apps/sites that solely focus on conscious fashion. Thank you Bead & Reel for filling that void! Already see something you love? Feel free to use code ASHLEY20 for 20% off your purchase at Bead & Reel!

Have some ethical pieces to sell?

The new RESCUED collection is not only a blessing for the eco chick looking for pieces to add to her closet, it’s awesome for those that might be looking to let go of some conscious pieces, too! I know personally that when it comes time for me to part with pieces of my thoughtful wardrobe, I don’t want them ending up in any ol’ secondhand shop. I visualize them in a home that appreciates and understands the ethical practices that went into making them just as much as I! The RESCUED collection is our perfect remedy to this; our conscious pieces now have the opportunity to live with another thoughtful consumer that will love its organic and ethically produced fibers just as much as we did for so long!

If you’re interested in selling, you can read all of the steps and guidelines on how to sell here. Bead & Reel has some strict buying standards for the RESCUED collection, so make sure you read through carefully. Most importantly: fully vegan pieces only and no fast fashion! 🙂

The payout percentage is 25% of the selling price for direct paypal deposit or 50% of the selling price for store credit to Bead & Reel. Pretty good deal if you ask me! Full details here.

 

Affiliate Notes: This piece is in no way sponsored and I was not asked by Bead & Reel to feature them or their new Rescued Collection. However, there are affiliate links throughout. This means that if you end up making a purchase a small referral commission will flow through to me. Read my full promise to you here.

    This company recently started showing up in my radar and I’m just now checking it out. Love love LOVE that they have added a “rescued” section of all ethical/ eco-friendly brands. Pretty sure they’re the first ones to really do this. And ANOTHER major props that everything is vegan!

      Hi Nichole!
      Sorry that I’m just seeing this now – it got caught up in my spam comment filter for some reason. But YES totally agreed, I think they are the first ones to do ethical brand thrifting! So exciting 🙂
      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment <3
      Lots of vegan love,

    Thank you for sharing – I’m always on the hunt for more sustainable fashion brand since deciding to quit fast-fashion last year! It’s excellent that there are more and more popping up!
