ConsiderBeyond Professional Community
Q. How did ConsiderBeyond start? 

Our founder, Esther, has over a decade of professional experience in sustainability management and ESG (environmental, social and governance) data analysis. In recent years, she noticed the surge of consumers that increasingly seek brands and products that conform with their ethics and values. While more brands and companies are taking initiatives to be responsible and bring positive impact to our society and the environment, ConsiderBeyond was born as a global platform to connect conscious consumers worldwide and conscious brands, and vice versa. Conscious consumerism is rising regardless of generation or demographic, and we see this major shift as an opportunity to better serve and connect with our community. ConsiderBeyond app is still at BETA stage and was born in May 2021.

Q. How can my brand get on the ConsiderBeyond app?  

If you believe your brand is conscious, socially and environmentally responsible, please let us know. We would love to hear from you. You can contact us via our app (Profile page), message us on Instagram, email us at hi@considerbeyond.com, submit the form on the landing page of our website, or fill in the form below - however you wish to contact us. Leave us your email address and brand website, and we will contact you within 14 days to learn more about your brand. Your brand will go through our evaluation process to be added to the ConsiderBeyond app. We welcome brands from all over the world!

Q. What is the definition of 'conscious’ brands for ConsiderBeyond?

There are numerous definitions and standards in this space. At ConsiderBeyond, we define 'conscious,' 'impact,' and 'sustainable' brands as consumer-focused companies that put extra effort to address environmental and/or social challenges through their services and products. These brands are purpose-driven and committed to bringing positive changes through their products, services, and business models. It is not our intention to criticize or call out brands that are doing more harm than good. Rather, we’d wish to use that time and effort to highlight the brands that are doing good.

Q. How do you evaluate a brand?

When evaluating and selecting brands, we use our unique ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) assessment tool. Each brand will fall under at least one of the value and attribute categories on the ConsiderBeyond app. As human beings, we are not perfect, and neither are brands. It is hard to be a ‘perfect’ conscious brand since all things are evolving. We collect all relevant data and information from sources that we believe to be reliable. Our data sources are: 1. certifications, accreditations, and other standards systems, 2. brand websites, and 3. credible third-party sources. Our information should not be construed as investment advice or seen as marketing material. We do our best to aggregate, evaluate and process all data from sources that we believe to be reliable; however, we make no representation as to the completeness or accuracy of the information and data. However, we do our best to do thorough research before introducing any brand on our platform.

Q. Why does ConsiderBeyond show the 3rd party certifications brands have?

Most brands featured in ConsiderBeyond are verified by third-party verification systems such as B Corp, Climate Neutral Certified, 1% for the Planet, EWG Verified, Better Cotton Initiative, Global Recycled Standard, Carbon Trust, and more. We respect what these organizations are doing to guide brands to thrive further in regards to sustainability. We use verifications from credible third-party agencies to identify consumer brands that meet high social and environmental standards. These verifications help us analyze and verify brands further. We currently cover 40 sustainability-related certifications, and the list can be seen on our app (Profile page). Each brand often has multiple verifications. You can tap the verification image on our app to get information on what the verification stands for. To learn more, please visit the Verifications section on our app (Profile page). We received positive feedback that this feature provides a passive learning tool for our users.

Q. What are the Values and Attributes?

There are 5 values (Responsible Business, Animal Welfare, Empower Others, Environment Protection, Healthy Living) and we present relevant attributes for each brand listed in our app. Each brand often has multiple attributes that fit under its values. We plan on improving the search function by attributes. If you wish to add new attributes to any of the brands, let us know at hi@considerbeyond.com.

Q. How do I recommend a brand?

Every day our users help us improve ConsiderBeyond by recommending brands that are currently not on our app yet. If you know a conscious brand that you love, like, or know, and wish to recommend to others, let us know! We will research and evaluate. However, we receive a lot of recommended brands, so please be patient with us. Please feel free to use the ‘recommend a brand’ button on our app (Home feed or Profile page). You can also email us at hi@considerbeyond.com, or simply fill in the below form.

Q. How do I use the ConsiderBeyond app to discover brands best-suited for me?

We ask the values and attributes you care about at the signup stage. This is to recommend brands and contents that are aligned with your selected values and attributes so that it is easier for you to discover brands that you may like. If you allow location sharing on your phone, we provide relevant information about shipping availability from brands to your current location.

Q. How can I see relevant brands where I am located?

We currently showcase brands originating from 22 countries! To browse brands by country, please check out the Local Brand section on our app (Home feed). To browse brands that ship to your location, turn on the “Shipping To” button on the results page. It will automatically show you the brands that ship to your country.

Q. How can I recommend a location (restaurant, cafe, etc.)?

If you wish to recommend a place or a location in your area, we would love to hear from you. This can be an offline store of a sustainable brand, vegan restaurant, fair-trade cafes, and the list can go on! Do not hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your recommendations and feedback.
