Samara & Co. is much more than just an online shopping site. For the consumer, it’s a place of exchange and discovery where quality is a priority. Only good local eco- responsible brands are represented there. But that wasn't enough. I was desperate to find a way to help a Canadian start-up that shared Samara & Co.’s values. It was probably the difficulties I encountered during my own start-up that made me want to facilitate the transition to the next one. I told myself that I’m certainly not the only one who wants to contribute to the development of Canadian companies. So I thought I’d give my clients a chance to participate. Each purchase earns them 1 vote. Every year, Samara & Co. will finance a Canadian company working in responsible consumption. This company will be chosen in a totally democratic way by the votes of Samara & Co.’s clients!
This is the story of Samara & Co. – a movement that is striving to be local, good for the planet and generous.
Ah yes, many people ask me, why the name Samara? It’s actually the fruit of the maple tree – those things commonly known as “helicopters.” They travel at the whim of the breezes in search of fertile ground, where they land and grow with determination. And what’s more, they’re super eco friendly! I think this symbolizes what Samara & Co. is all about.
Will you join the movement?
