A New Look For SiS
The Swiss Impact Store has always been more than just a sustainable marketplace. Instead, it has strived to provide a sense of community among like-minded people. It is a platform where responsible individuals can come together and share ideas for leading a fulfilling and sustainable lifestyle.
But the goal is not achievable overnight. It took months of perseverance and growth to finally succeed.
A website is the face of a brand. And when a brand is continuously improving, it only makes sense if the website does so too. So, presenting the reimagined and redesigned face of SiS – its brand new website, swissimpactstore.com.
“We are thrilled to finally unveil our new website to the public by the end of January 2023. We have worked hard to make it more intuitive and easier to navigate while still maintaining all of the valuable content and resources our users have come to expect from us.”
(Damla Aksu – Founder, Swiss Impact Store)
The revamped, state-of-the-art website represents its brand with its à la mode design and latest technology. The key updates include the following:
- An all-round seamless shopping experience
- Sleek and modern design
- Improved user interface
- Lightning-fast transactions
- Mobile phone compatibility
- Better manageability for sellers (products, stock, and orders)
How it all started?
Damla Aksu founded the Swiss Impact Store in 2021 as a small digital storefront in Lausanne with just a handful of eco-friendly products. Her aim was to promote sustainable living and make it accessible for all.
Despite the difficulties of starting a business, Damla was motivated by the belief that the retail industry’s environmental impact could be reduced through education and action.
At the beginning, it was only she who worked tirelessly to source and curate the best selection of sustainable products. But as the platform gained recognition, the demand for eco-friendly goods grew. It became clear that Damla needed help if she wanted to keep giving her customers exemplary service.
So, she brought in two new members to the team who shared the same beliefs as her. Today, just a couple of years later, the dedicated team of three is proud to offer a collection of 500+ sustainable products that help their customers live responsibly.
SiS is constantly seeking out new and innovative ways to make sustainable living accessible and affordable to all. The brand has come a long way since it first started, and its team is grateful for the support of its loyal customers.
