The Comarché is the online marketplace for a sustainable life. We’re an online community of sustainable brands and game changers within their respective fields of operation. That being fashion, design, lifestyle or beauty. At The Comarché we want to inspire to and reduce barriers for a more sustainable life.
When we say that we’re a community, we mean it. When shopping on our platform, you are in fact supporting an independent, sustainable brand. We represent a network of sustainable brands and present all of their products in one place – right here on thecomarche.com.
Visual appeal and sustainable resonance
At The Comarché, we are in love with beautiful products and solutions made by people with a passion for their craft and work, and with a mission to do what they love without sacrificing neither the earth, human rights, animals nor the nature surrounding us. By carefully balancing visual appeal and sustainable resonance, we’ve handpicked brands that live up to this criteria within the following five categories: Fashion, Home, Beauty, Lifestyle & Kids.
Meet the founders
With three distinctly different backgrounds, the three founders behind The Comarché came together with one joint hope: Enabling sustainable brands to truly break through and make it possible for the informed consumer to make the better choice when shopping online.

Meet the founders
Marie Engberg // Co-Founder, Head of Everything Sustainable
Marie has more than 15 years of experience with sustainability, communication and design. Marie started her career in the fashion and design industry. However, after a couple of years in New York where she worked on Barack Obama's re-election campaign in 2012, she was inspired to make a significant change.
Marie has since then dedicated herself to sustainability both as consultant and advisor as well as self-employed, with her brand YUME that Marie founded in 2017. Alongside independently forming her own brand, Marie has also helped clients of the design, hotel and hospitality field to integrate sustainability into their value chain through a sustainability focused concept development. Marie is a coveted advisor, public speaker, and moderator for events and activities where sustainability is central.
