As the world becomes increasingly conscious of the impact of consumerism on the planet, more and more people are looking for ways to make their shopping choices align with their values. Enter PAZ, an immersive online marketplace that offers a range of sustainable and ethical products.
Founded by Maria Russo, a writer, photographer, and Representative to the United Nations for Humanity Unified Int’l, PAZ partners with artisans, brands, and designers who create using slow, organic, regenerative, and bird-friendly processes. The platform features a variety of products including organic skincare, coffee, chocolate, accessories, home goods, and more.
“We are excited to share products created in harmony with nature and possess the art and design qualities of each unique ancestral history,” said Russo. “PAZ is a portal to the artistic creations of makers, growers, and designers. It illuminates the beauty that lies in intentional creation and provides a path to consumerism that is mindful of the sacredness and fragility of our planet.”
But PAZ is more than just an online marketplace. It is a platform that seeks to support local communities and preserve the environment. Russo was inspired to create PAZ after traveling the world and witnessing firsthand the impact of poverty and the climate crisis on communities. She believes that the choices we make as consumers can make a significant difference in the world.
“Women in developing nations suffer the most from the climate crisis,” said Russo. “As a Representative to the United Nations, I have learned the urgency of providing employment opportunities for women – with steady work comes food security, safety from sexual predators and sex traffickers, education for their children and opportunities to move into leadership roles within their community.”
PAZ offers a unique shopping experience where customers can shop for products that align with their values and support sustainable and ethical practices. Many of the home goods and accessories are sourced from partners that employ artisans in the developing world and guarantee fair and ethical working conditions. The clean skincare products are more than just luxurious facial oils, scrubs, and nourishing treatments. They are women-owned businesses dedicated to sustainable practices and providing organic, ethically sourced ingredients.
In Spanish, the word PAZ means “peace.” And that is precisely what this immersive marketplace seeks to create – a peaceful world where every purchase makes a positive impact. PAZ is a platform that supports the livelihoods of people who adopt a “do no harm” ethos towards humanity and the planet.
“We hope you’ll support this mission with your purchases and help in sharing the benefits of making conscious choices with your community,” said Russo. “We look forward to providing a platform for the consumer who wants to positively impact the world.”
