Founder, Kristen Drapesa was inspired to started Ecohabitude after her mother’s battle with breast cancer. Her mission was to launch an online marketplace to connect shoppers with healthier beauty products and ethically-produced fashion. Ecohabitude began in New York as an e-commerce site for products in beauty and fashion, however, now it has expanded to many more product offerings such as eco-friendly children’s clothing, homewares, wedding gifts and edibles such as coffee and spices.
