CHANGING TIDES is our new name, formally SEEDS FOR KINDNESS. Same mission, same people!
With today's growing climate change concerns, we are working to change the tide and promote a new path, a path that promotes environmental sustainability through conscious gifting. Our products are made ethically and sustainably. We support vendors that promote community, recycling, and the conservation of our wildlife, wild places, resources, and clean air and water.
The items we carry are carefully chosen to offer unique style and high quality while using sustainable sources, removing materials from landfills, practicing fair trade, and making a positive impact in our world. Most of our manufacturers give back to meaningful causes, and we do as well, to our chosen organization.
Every creation we have tells a story; from its original materials to its current life, there is soul in every piece.
Shopping is donating! While you may be able to find eco-friendly gifts in many shops across the country, at Changing Tides you are also donating much needed funds to environmental groups.
We look forward to changing the tides with you.
What We Do
From flip-flops to circuit boards, we love the companies that keep our landfills and rivers free of debris, while making gorgeous art! Re-purposing flip-flops, discarded firehoses, leather scraps, computer parts, and more is one way we keep trash from entering the oceans and natural environment. Your purchase allows Changing Tides to help SeaLegacy and their conservation efforts.
Products that add to the health, wellbeing, and happiness of animals across the globe is part of our mission. We support wildlife as well as domestic animals, offering dogs and cats products that are safe and natural, and supporting groups that give back to rescue and wildlife protection organizations.
Using found objects and upcycled materials, our creative artists are dedicated to an earth-friendly process. Creativity, craftsmanship, and connection to the natural world is one way we can all help spread beauty to others around us. We support artists and companies that use ingenuity as well as give back to their communities, raise awareness, and empower people.
