Sustainable Business Directory

Shopping consciously is easy now

The Sustainable Business Directory presents businesses hand-selected for excellent products and services, sustainable production, employee and animal welfare. All businesses listed here are run by women*, non-binary people and allies, and they are based all around the world.

You can apply to get your business listed here, or simply enjoy this new shopping experience. What are you looking for today?

What are you looking for, today?

Researching all options and making the best choices which meet our needs and taste AND are sustainable can cost a lot of time.

To make it easier, the Sustainable Business Directory brings together the 1000 best service providers, entrepreneurs and companies when it comes to combining business and sustainability.

I believe that it should be easy to make the best choices for us, our friends and families, animal welfare, employee well-being and our planet.

Welcome to this new shopping experience!

If you know a business that should be listed here, tell them about this.

If you run a business which focuses on offering sustainable services or products and put the well-being of your employees first, then please apply here.

The directory is just the beginning - we're building a real supportive network here, for all interested and working to make this world a better place. Trainings, workshops and talks by industry leaders will soon be added and offered to those who join the directory.

Not running your own sustainable business yet?
Then support those who do, and put your money where your ❤️ is.

There is no other community-based directory like this out there.

Get listed in the Sustainable Business Directory

Thank you for your interest in the Sustainable Business Directory. It is about to become a stable institution for all those who want to make better choices for themselves, their loved ones and our planet. The Sustainable Business Directory brings together the 1000 best service providers, entrepreneurs and companies when it comes to combining business and sustainability.

There is no other community-based directory like this out there.

So, you’ve come here at the perfect time to get your listing, as spaces are limited to 1000 listings in the first year.

50 of those 1000 listings will be GOLD listings, 200 PREMIUM listings and 750 MINI listings. You can use the form below to apply to get a MINI, PREMIUM or GOLD listing.

The directory is just the beginning – we’re building a real supportive network here, for all interested and working to make this world a better place. Trainings, workshops and talks by industry leaders will soon be added and offered to those who join the directory.

    the idea

    • How can I combine theory with practice?
    • How can I be an individual within the collective?
    • How can I care for myself and my family, and be of service to my community & the whole world?
    • How can I live a conscious and self-determined joyful, successful, expansive and loving life?

    These questions are the foundation of my work as a spiritual teacher, self-actualization coach & conscious entrepreneur because none of us exists in a vacuum.

    Whatever we do, we need each other.

    The better we feel about ourselves, the more we can have a positive effect on those around us.

    Equally, the better the people around us feel, the easier it is for ourselves to be at ease with them.

    Everyone I know and work with wants to make the best choices, when it comes to how they live their lives, and that includes what and where they shop.

    But often there’s simply not enough time to do the research in the moment in which we do need something.

    To solve this problem, I’ve created the first Sustainable Business Directory for businesses and services run by women*, non-binary people and allies.

    If you would like to buy something or are looking for a service, but don’t want to scroll through endless offers you find through search engines, or on other platforms, trying to evaluate which are the people you’d want to support most with your business – from now on, you can come here.

    The businesses listed here are all innovative in their own ways and contribute to a better world with unique ideas & ambitions. What they all have in common is the intention to create change, and to take our fate into our own hands by creating the innovations and changes we need – because we can and it’s much more fun to do it together!

    There are no formal requirements for a listing, but I trust the people listed here, that they are running their businesses to create excellent products and services and put a lot of love into what they do and that they are working to make our lives on this planet more sustainable, peaceful and joyful.

    For me, running the Sustainable Business Directory is my way of indulging in what I love: beautiful and sustainable products induced and created with love and care, and to share this passion with you and all those who come here.

    I also see this as a chance to support people who are brave enough to step up for what they believe is right, and to meet them here.

    The Sustainable Business Directory, together with a podcast to highlight some of the business owners presented here, is a beginning.

    Once it’s all set up and running, those involved will also be invited to trainings, workshops and talks with industry leaders, so that we can really make the most of the connections here.

    The content you find here is consciously selected and very well curated – because all of our time and efforts matter.

    Sign up for the free newsletter to stay in touch and keep up to date with the Sustainable Business Directory.

    Let’s grow, and play, and enjoy all the beauty in this world, together!

    Why get a gold listing?

    To be the qui_ng of your field.

    So that people looking for what you have to offer see your product first.

    Because you are really proud of what you have created and want to share it with the world by showing off the beauty you’ve created with a big picture!

    And, if you need one more: Because you want to talk about what you do and why, and inspire even more people on the Podcast and in a written interview with me.

    There’s only 1 Gold Listing available per category, and only 50 altogether. The Gold Listing will go to the first of each category to apply and qualify. Is that you?

    PS: The podcast & interview also work really well as a beautiful reference you can use for your own promotion.

    Why get a premium listing?

    For the same reasons that you would want to get a GOLD listing, but the GOLD Listing for your category has already been taken. 🙂

    Or because you can’t afford a GOLD listing just yet. If that’s the case, I’m confident that if you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll get there sooner than you think.

    We’re all on our own timeline, and your work is outstanding. Go you! ❤️

    There’s only 200 PREMIUM listings available, and they will go to the first ones who apply and qualify as well.

    PS: The written interview I’ll publish for you also works really well as a beautiful reference you can use for your own promotion.

    choose your listing

    Below, you can see the different listing types.

    GOLD listings are limited to 50 per year, and include a photo feature on the directory + category page, as well as an interview in writing to be published on the website and promoted on Social Media, and a podcast/video interview. GOLD listings will be given to the first 50 approved applicants. GOLD listings cost €499 for one full year.

    PREMIUM listings are limited to 200, and include a photo feature on the directory page, as well as an interview in writing to be published on the website and promoted on Social Media. Premium Listings will also be given to the first applicants who qualify. Premium Listings cost €199 for one full year.

    Mini Listings are free for now. If you’d like to join and get listed here, apply above.

    The year officially starts on November 1st, 2024. If you sign up now, you’ll get the months until then completely for free. There’s no automatic renewal, you will be contacted again in August or September 2025, to see if you would like to renew your listing.

    This project is initiated and run by me, Verena.

    I believe in community and I sincerely appreciate the work that you do and that you are finding new ways to make our world a better place to live in for all. Thank you. ❤️

    Clarity - Confidence - Connection

    In the CREATRIX School we bring clarity, confidence and connection into every area of our lives - and we look at a different topic each month.

    This month is all about our families, and thinking about what we want and need here. Are you close to your biological family? Why (not)? Do you have a chosen family? Would you like to create one? What matters to you when it comes to family?

    It's fun, it's exciting, and it is surely also challenging, as we have to become honest with ourselves and start imagining new possibilities.

    What would your ideal family situation look like? Let's find out.
