Live By is currently accepting applications from environmentally conscious and ethically-driven brands.
Simply provide us with the key information about your brand, your products, and your values and we’ll create a dedicated brand page just for you. You sign off on your shop page before it goes live.
Conscientious buyers browse and search on Live By to find the best planet-friendly products and brands who care about the issues and causes that count. We’ll introduce buyers to your products, letting them know exactly how your brand is working towards making an impact for the better.
We don’t do up-front fees. We only get paid when you do. Our revenue model is based upon commissions, meaning there’s no risk or hidden costs for you – in a nutshell, you only pay when you sell.

Live By assesses a brand’s environmental and social impact so that users can determine which products are better based upon a combination of empirical data and their own values.
To do this, we need to understand in detail how a brand operates. The application form is what we use to determine the weighted measure of a brand’s environmental efforts, thereby determining whether a brand meets our minimum criteria threshold.
We’re looking for the world’s best brands that are working to mitigate their environmental impact through initiatives and actions.
In order to be considered, a brand must make tangible and quantifiable efforts to mitigate their environmental impact. This could take many forms, such as implementing a waste reduction program, utilizing circular design, avoiding the use of animal by-products or minimizing water usage. Brands should be working across multiple causes, ideally addressing the full spectrum of their impact on humans, people and planet.
We also ask that a brand has a pre-existing affiliate program in place.
Tip: if you’re committed to doing GOOD through your brand and you’re taking actionable steps to make the world a better place, chances are we’re going to be besties 😉
This depends on how much you know about the company itself. If you’re knowledgeable about most aspects of the business then this questionnaire should take about 25-30 minutes to complete.
Answers are saved as you go, so you can return to the questionnaire at a later date, as long as you haven’t cleared your browser’s cookies.
We use scientifically-backed metrics to determine environmental impact, which means that we quantify the extent to which a brand is causing environmental harm and only feature the products of those that are actively minimizing their negative impact.
To do this, we require oversight into various aspects of a brand’s operations and product manufacturing, supply chain transparency and employment policies.
After you submit your application form a member of our Transparency Team will review your answers. They will contact you if they require any further information. We aim to process applications within 1-2 weeks.
If your brand passes our criteria threshold we’ll be in touch with next steps to onboard your brand and get your products onto the Live By platform.
If your brand does not currently meet our criteria threshold you’re welcome to reapply after 3 months have passed – we’re happy to offer advice on what areas can be improved!
We’re as strict about what goes into our newsletter as you are about what goes onto your skin
