What are you looking for?

To continuously make choices that meet our needs and taste and are sustainable can cost a lot of time. To make it easier, I'm looking for 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 that focuses on offering sustainable services or products and put the well-being of your employees first, then please apply below.

The directory is just the beginning. Trainings, workshops and talks by industry leaders will soon be added and offered to those who join the directory.

Put your money where your ❤️ is.

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

Highlights

ARCHETYPE POSTERS

Have you been looking for a fun and playful way to bring more clarity, joy and ease into your life? Archetypes are images we create in our unconscious. Many we know from story plots or films, like the hero, the villain, the princess and so on. But beyond the use in storytelling, archetypes have been used to get a better understanding of our unconscious ideas about certain aspects of our lives, which are otherwise difficult to reach. Learn more about the possibilities to work with archetypes for your personal development and get these beautiful archetype posters to decorate your home.

Scheibchens Garnträume

SCHEIBCHENS GARNTRÄUME

PAID ADVERTISEMENT
I offer sustainable and vegan knitting and crochet yarns and a few patterns as well. Being a passionate knitter myself, it occurred to me that there are not many hemp yarns available on the German market. So, I decided to found Scheibchens Garnträume to fill that void, but today you can also find other eco-friendly yarns in my shop.

Get listed in the Sustainable Business Directory

Thank you for your interest in the Sustainable Business Directory. There is no equivalent community-based directory out there. You may apply below if you'd like to get a Free or Premium Listing here.

The directory is the starting point to create a network for women*, non-binary people and allies, who run successful businesses and create solutions for the problems we are currently facing, the Generous Life Movement. We're always better, together!

    the idea

    How can I combine theory with practice? The individual with the collective? Self-care with care for the community?

    These questions are the foundation of my work as a coach because none of us exists in an empty space.

    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 at the moment in which we do need something.

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

    You want to buy something or are looking for a service, but don’t want to scroll through endless offers on Google, or other platforms, trying to find out who the people are you’d want to support most with your business?

    From now on, you can come here.

    I’m just starting to reach out and add the first businesses, so if you know of someone who should be listed here or would like to list your own business, reach out or apply above.

    The content here will be highly selective and curated.

    There are no formal requirements, but I have to 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 sustainable and joyful.

    For me, this 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.

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

    I believe that we can achieve so much more and enjoy and discover so much more if we support each other.

    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.

    Sign up for the free newsletter to be among the first to hear about that.

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

    Why get a gold listing?

    To be the Qui_ng (a mix of King & Queen) 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 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.

    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 amazing. Go you! ❤️

    There's only 6 Premium Listings available per category, and they will go to the first ones who apply and qualify as well.

    choose your listing

    Below, you can see the two different premium listing types.

    Gold Listings are limited to 50 per year, 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, 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 6 per subcategory, 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 be given to the first 6 applicants per subcategory who qualify. Premium Listings cost €199 for one full year.

    Mini Listings are free for the first year. If you'd like to join and get listed here, apply above.

    The year officially starts on April 1st, 2023. 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 February/March 2024, to see if you would like to renew your listing.

    This project is initiated and run by me, Verena, a solopreneur. I believe in community and I really 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. ❤️

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

    OUR WORLD NEEDS CHANGE.
    Our world needs you.
    In your full power.

    Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

    How can I benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

    Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

    Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

    But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become fiercely interdependent.

    If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life.

    On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
