Products with a PURPOSE

We take pride in the products we stock and the brands we work with - many of which are also doing their part to make a difference. Here are just a few examples:

  • Tennessee-based Swiftwick sustainably manufactures 100% of their products here in the USA. 
  • Squirrel's Nut Butter is family-owned and the salve was created and perfected in the Stacy and Chris Thornley's Arizona home. The salve is all-natural. 
  • Moji is based in Lake Zurich, IL and all their products are also manufactured here in Illinois. Moji is proud to sponsor the Cancer Wellness Center based in Illinois. The center has locations in Northbrook, Grayslake, Park Ridge, and Libertyville. The Cancer Wellness Center was founded in 1989 to help people live better while living with cancer. 
  • Superfeet is 100% employee-owned and donates 1% of sales annually to charitable efforts focused on helping people get back on their feet.
  • Clif bakes their goods with clean renewable energy and uses environmentally-friendly packaging. They also created the Clif Bar Family Foundation and Seed Matters.
  • Family-owned Feetures sponsors Charlotte-based nonprofit "Let Me Run" and partners with Samaritan's Feet.
  • Gu started the Gu Gives program to support communities and the planet.
  • Boston-based Janji apparel was built to support clean water initiatives around the globe. 10% of Janji sales help fuel clean water projects in various countries.
  • Generation UCAN started out as two parents trying to help their son, Jonah, to find a nutritional solution that would address a disorder that required him to eat every two hours. The solution was a superstarch that releases smaller bits of energy over time. The benefits for endurance athletes were clear, and UCAN was born!
