Our Story

We’re David and Janine, co-founders and co-CEOs of cerqular.

Set to revolutionize your shopping experience. We realized shopping needed a change as conscious consumers. Finding sustainable and transparent brands was a constant struggle.

We're Janine and David, the co-founders and co-CEOs of Cerqular, dedicated to transforming your shopping experience. Drawing from our own experiences and insights, we recognized the necessity for a fresh perspective on the way people navigate the world of retail.

Finding sustainable and transparent brands was a constant struggle for us. We noticed that many eco-friendly brands lacked clarity, while principled brands faced challenges in gaining visibility. It became evident that something needed to be done to support workers, creators, communities, and the environment.

Driven by our deep passion for a healthier future, we brought Cerqular to life. We firmly believe that access to sustainable products should be easy, transparent, and inclusive for everyone. Drawing from our diverse industry experience around the world, we witnessed a shared desire for a better world—a world where products benefit the planet and people! However, access to such products often remained an obstacle. That's why we want to empower you to make informed decisions that align with what matters most to you, whether it's supporting people, the planet, or your community! After all, sustainability can mean so much to each of us.

"Join us on this incredible journey of conscious consumerism. Together, we will shape a future where shopping becomes a force for good—a world where every purchase makes a meaningful difference!"

David Friedrichs, Co-CEO
