Eco boutiques are a way of bringing ethically and sustainably made goods to the consumer public. At Shift Eco Boutique we require that the products in the store are crafted from recycled, upcycled, repurposed and sustainably grown materials, including organic cotton, using fair trade and fair labor practices. Shift carries clothing, accessories, gifts, home goods, furniture and products for baby made from eco-friendly materials using eco-friendly processes. At Shift we believe that you can buy fashionable wardrobe staples and stylish home essentials without doing harm to people or the environment.
The boutique was opened in early winter 2009 by Amanda Converse and Amy Dufault, along with Justine Coppenrath who were all passionate about bringing this concept to Cape Cod. Since opening, the success of the boutique has resulted from lots of hard work, really fun events, collaborations with local businesses, transparency with customers (nobody can leave looking bad in Shift clothes) and most importantly, a good eye for beautiful clothing. Amy has since moved on to become the full-time fashion editor of EcoSalon.com, while Amanda and Justine remain dedicated to providing the local and online community with a great shopping experience.
Shift is proud to be a locally owned store on Cape Cod with many local friends and partners. Shift is also proud to be a part of a global community trying to educate people about eco-fashion and environmental causes.
