Brand & Marketing Claims Standards 

 

We represent transparency, authenticity, & sustainability. To build trust and increase transparency, all Purposemart sellers must comply with our standards and share our values & principles.

We will continually evolve our vetting procedures to ensure that we give our community members the most realistic picture of the high-quality brands and products available.

Transparency 

We expect transparency! The number one challenge that consumers face when it comes to sustainable brands is the lack of trust. You must be extremely clear about your ethics, marketing claims, and how exactly you are making an impact. State the percentages and clear explanations for all environmental claims and social impact claims. Be ready to provide documentation and other supporting information to collaborate your claims.  

Ethically Made 

Make your products in a way that is kind to people, animals, and the planet. Your workers are being paid a fair wage and have a safe working environment. No child or forced labor is used and you adopt fair trade practices.   

Sustainability claims

Products with sustainability claims must be made with low impact, long life cycle, and sustainable materials. Be specific about your ingredients and process. Board terms like Eco-friendly, Non-toxic, Natural, Chemical-free, Green, etc. without any supporting information are meaningless. Organic, vegan, and biobased products must be certified by an accreditable third-party organization. 

Social Impact claims

Brands with social claims must accurately and explicitly describe their impact on people and communities. Keep it easy and simple to understand. 

What is your social impact? Who is benefiting from your action? How does it benefit them? It’s important to measure your social impact so you can accurately tell the story of the change you are making.
