I've got the basics on dropshipping, but finding ethical suppliers has been one of the most difficult things ever.
I even thought of starting with Aliexpress and Alibaba, but they're not reliable platforms since they allow some sketchy sellers in.
Truth be told, I love many of the products mainly because of how esthetically pleasing they are. But the price has a lot to do with it as well, I could get more profit this way. That's why so many dropship store owners seek these two alternatives at first.
My goal is to be ethical, so I really need to think carefully and source products that fit my brand's ideals. So, having this goal in mind:
- Is seeking ethical, eco-friendly products (and excluding the ones that aren't) in non-ethical platforms like Aliexpress and Alibaba still ethical?
- are there platforms that exclusively sell ethical products?
The second option would be my preference but I haven't found one like that yet - I tried a few but they're still paid, as well as any supplier directory. Is there anyone here that has dealt with these kinds of things to inform me?
