I love supporting fair trade companies, purchasing products – everything from clothing to home goods to bath and beauty – that are from ethical brands or sources. I love shopping small and local, and I especially love purchasing from brands that are Made in the USA.
The more research I have done, I’ve realized how hard it is to find a solid, comprehensive list of companies, brands, businesses, etc. that are fair trade, ethically made, sustainably made, and / or made in the USA. It shouldn’t have to be difficult to shop this way!
So, I wanted to create a directory of businesses and brands that meet those standards! Thus, this directory was born. It is always going to be a work in progress as some brands may need to be removed from the list and some brands may need to be added!

We began 31 Bits with a simple idea: To give artisans dignified job opportunities by making products that women would buy. Sounds simple, but it took passion, grit, and most of all customers like you who have followed along since the beginning.
