7 Day Countdown to the TOP Brands on Cluey

Did you know that at Cluey we have over 6,000 brands that you can search to discover their impacts to align your purchases with your values? Pretty cool, right? The only problem: sometimes you don’t have all the time in the world to just search and search, and sometimes you just want to know what are the best brands that you can feel good about supporting.

We’ve got you covered.

Of all the brands in our database, almost 9% of them score above a B- or higher for both people and planet impact ratings. We should also note, about the same amount of brands score a D or lower for people and planet impacts. We rounded up those 500+ brands into a “Top Brands List” broken down by category, and to build the excitement for publishing that top list, we are counting down the days! Each day, we’ll feature a top overall list. For example, today, we’re listing the top 7 cosmetic brands on Cluey.

But first, did you know that coffee beans are among the least ethically produced goods in the world? From forced and child labor concerns to environmental degradation, not to mention, coffee farmer receive less than 1% of revenue from every cup of coffee. This reality has plagued the big coffee brands like Nespresso and Starbucks in the past. That’s why, when we look for brands in this category, having a commitment to being fair trade is a must. You’ll notice, all six brands have various commitments to fair trade policies (certifications vary in this space.. stay tuned for a future blog post about it!) 

  1. Rockin’ Cat (“Fairtrade America” certified coffees)
  2. Amavida (part of the “Fair Trade Proof” member network)
  3. Larry’s Coffee (part of the “Fair Trade Proof” member network)
  4. Grounds for Change (“Fair for Life” certified)
  5. Just Coffee Co-op (part of the “Fair Trade Proof” member network)
  6. Conscious Coffees (sources from Co-op Coffees, a member of the “Fair Trade Proof” network, “Fairtrade International” certified, and a member of the “Fair Trade Federation”)
