New online retailer Free Spirit Brands aims to shift the shopping sphere to be more ethical and sustainable by providing curated products from better brands all in one place.
A ‘chic and unique’ shopping experience for the conscious consumer
After experiencing a host of medical conditions caused by working in an 9/11 environment with toxic chemical exposure and mercury poisoning related to dental amalgams, coupled with other health issues, Free Spirit Brands founder Ty Lopez knew she wanted to do her bit in the burgeoning eco-shopping space.
“These experiences have given me first hand knowledge of the importance of the products we consume and the environmental impacts around us, and on our bodies and our collective lives,” Lopez tells us.
The Living Green Universe by Free Spirit Brands is a social platform and marketplace of stylish responsible fashion, digital wearables, and innovative eco-products, connecting people from all over the globe to raise awareness and promote conscious consumption.
While the brand started back in 2014 with research and development for patent pending sustainable and wellness feminine care products, it has recently expanded to include a host of goods across fashion and beyond to have a greater positive impact on the world of online shopping. Let’s take a closer look.
How Free Spirit Brands does things differently
Dubbed “The Living Green Universe platform”, Lopez says this isn’t your conventional retailer. While it does have a shopping element, it is also a resource for sustainability education and news, brand ratings powered by Good On You, and forging a strong community both online and in person.

A crucial part of Good On You’s mission is to make ethical and sustainable shopping more accessible to millions of people worldwide. We partner with brands and retailers that match our morals and help them figure out how to uphold and enact the values we share. With our help, Free Spirit Brands aims to provide sustainability ratings across its listed fashion products, and support “Good” and “Great” brands you’ll love.
