What is Evil Free?

Nobody wants to buy from companies that misbehave, but it’s hard to avoid them.

Especially when a few control nearly all the brands you love.

100% ethical companies are like unicorns. They’re make-believe.

But we can do better than cheap plastic stuff from countries where “1984” is a how-to guide, not a cautionary tale.

That’s where we come in.

Evil Free means eco-friendly, cruelty-free, ethical and innovative.

In other words, products and experiences that enrich you and the world around you.

You may not be able to save the world right now. But you have the power to make an impact every day.

“Don’t Buy Evil is for anyone trying to leave the world better than they found it.”

We have a simple philosophy: spend money on good people.

We believe in voting with your wallet (or purse!)

Don’t Buy Evil rewards companies with a social conscience by showcasing them on our site.

We curate high-quality, sustainable, locally-sourced items and experiences you can feel good about buying.

This takes effort, but it’s quicker than listing which companies to avoid.

And it’s worth it.

No one can buy a listing on our site. We vet every company with this method.

It’s simple. Avoid naughty companies, and you make the world a better place.

How We Choose Our Products and Experiences

  1. Locally-Sourced The shipping industry is one of the most polluting in the world. Buying goods locally not only helps small-businesses, but also the environment.
  2. Environmentally-Friendly Developed countries have strong pollution-control regulations. We focus on products created with sustainable methods and materials.
  3. Ethically-Manufactured Child and sweatshop labor are notorious for keeping people poor and limiting their opportunities. This leads to a cycle of dependence on non-renewable industries. We can break this cycle by buying from ethical companies.
  4. High-Quality and Innovative Products that withstand daily use can provide value for life. Being innovative and fun to use are a plus. We look for independently-verified items with minimum 4-star ratings.
  5. Created by Small to Medium Sized Businesses We are a small group and prefer small businesses that treat employees like human-beings, not cogs.
