e-commerce & Entrepreneurship
Modavanti.com is the destination for conscious commerce. Modavanti was founded as a response to the degradation of the environment and the worker, accelerated by the fast-fashion culture worldwide. For the past decade, experts have been forecasting and identifying trends towards sustainable fashion and socially-conscious consumerism. Modavanti has emerged as the one-stop shop for the socially-conscious fashionista.
Modavanti approaches both the fashion industry and the sustainable fashion movement as a constructive voice for social entrepreneurship, including Modavanti’s commitment to a Triple Bottom Line. Modavanti defines this principle through its core values of People, Planet and Profit, and thus, in addition to ethically-sourced and eco-friendly product, a percentage of each purchase goes towards Modavanti’s charity partners: other players in the movement.
Curating over 150 brands, Modavanti's mission it to make it easy to shop responsibly - taking into consideration social good, the environment and ethical labor - without compromising on aesthetics and quality design. Modavanti currently offers women's, men's, beauty and lifestyle products from all over the world.
