Our Mission

Create a welcoming, trusted and transformational marketplace in an environment of conscious commerce.

Why is making responsible consumer choices such a challenge?

You’ve made a choice. Empowering yourself to pay attention to who you support is important. So, you look for products and services from socially responsible businesses.

Seems straightforward enough, but the reality proves otherwise.

There’s no one place you can trust to satisfy all your needs or align with your values

Traditionally, all the “things” you need have been separated from the “services” that make your life better. And, that meant you had to run all over the place to find the right mix of professionals, classes and products.

And, it's surprisingly difficult to shop according to your values. Whether you’re vegetarian or just health-minded, care about sustainability, animal-welfare, organics or any number of deeply held values, it can be challenging to determine which products uphold your beliefs and which fall short.

But what if it could be different?

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to wave a magic wand and sort everything you want to buy according to the values you hold dear?

Wouldn’t life be easier if there was a single location where you could support conscious based businesses that value people, and sustainability, over profit?

We've got you covered

Our values-based shopping options gives you access to hundreds of filters to find exactly what you're looking for. And, it’s not just about products, but local services, too.

Every time you click “buy now” you purchase products and services that align with what’s most important to you and you support a socially responsible business. With each purchase, review or rating, you participate in creating a like-minded community.

Our Founder

Meet Jim, our visionary founder. He envisioned Mindful Market as a way to make it easier for all of us to live the lives we dream of, whether as conscious consumers or socially responsible business owners.

Mindful Market is my dream come true

I'm Jim Kupczk, founder of Mindful Market

For my entire life, I’ve always looked for ways to improve my health and well-being.

It was second nature to look for ways to improve my health. I have also always looked for ways to support small businesses have my best interests at heart.

Wellness is a journey

What I discovered is that wellness is less a final destination than it is an ongoing journey, full of new discoveries and deeply fulfilling moments of transformation.

Following the path to wellbeing and supporting socially responsible businesses can be stressful

Life gets in the way and we simply do not have time to research conscious businesses dedicated to the values that matter to us most. We find ourselves entangled in endless internet searches of multiple e-commerce sites in an attempt to find what we are looking for AND ensure the business is socially responsible and values people over profit.

But what if it could be different?

In 2010, I started imagining how my experience of travelling the path of total well-being could be different. Better.

I had a vision of a new type of marketplace, where I could find everything that I need for my well-being from heart-centered businesses who truly care about me.

The pain of a small business owner

Around the same time that I was longing for a one-stop shop filled with heart-centered business owners, I also became a small business owner.

On my path to optimizing my mind, body and spirit, I discovered I had a natural ability to help people balance and heal themselves through energy healing. Further, I had created the Energy T, a shirt infused with healing energy. I had so many positive responses from friends who wore the shirt that I wanted to get it into the hands of as many people as possible.

Ecommerce wellness platforms were non-existent

But finding the right ecommerce platform proved frustrating. It was too easy to get lost in the crowd and no one catered specifically to wellness and spiritually-oriented business owners and service providers.

I knew I needed to find my people

I was also facing the stigma attached to anything spiritual. In my personal life, I knew how transformative a community of like-minded people could be in this regard, but I wasn’t finding it in the business world.

My goals converged

I imagined a world where the journey to total well-being was easy and affordable. I imagined a platform where small socially responsible business owners could make the world a better place and where their gifts wouldn’t go unnoticed. I imagined a community where we could all take the journey together and help each other thrive.

So I created Mindful Market.

Join us. This is a place where more is possible.
