Whoever manages the Shopify app store, it would be awesome to see a collection of apps that enable merchants to be socially responsible. I know there are some apps out there that already work in this space, and it would be awesome to see them all grouped together!
Thanks for reaching out and for this suggestion to have a collection of socially responsible apps listed in our App Store. I have forwarded this to our Apps team. If we move forward with your suggestion we will add this to our changelog or announcements page.
You mentioned acknowledging some apps that already are socially responsible, do you have a list of apps that I could pass along to our team? That would be so helpful for us to keep in mind and understand what you’re looking for specifically.
Thanks and chat soon,
Thanks for the quick reply and examples, @ianherri. I have passed these examples to our Apps team for you.
Looking forward to seeing your app! If you have anymore suggestions or other apps that come up, please feel free to post them here and I'll be happy to forward them to our Apps team.
Moving your message outside of the original thread so that more users can see your question and help
Some loose subcategories: accessibility & languages, charities & donations, environmental & carbon offsets, policy(ies), ethical sourcing
I thought there was a collection for accessibility & carbon offsets before but I can't find it so must be imagining it /shrug.
Accessibility is no where to be found under store design which is suuuuuuper bad and weird as a standalone issue https://apps.shopify.com/categories/store-design
Policy is currently used Store management for 'Policy and security measures' in https://apps.shopify.com/categories/store-management
@PaulNewton, thanks for bringing that up. While we don't have a dedicated social responsibility category in our App Store, if you do search, "social responsibility" in the App Store, you will find a list of apps that are related to social responsibility.
Thanks again for the app suggestions, everyone! Moving forward, if any posts with suggestions are added, they will be given a "Like" to indicate that we've acknowledged them and have forwarded them to our apps team. Your suggestions help us make our App Store and Shopify better for everyone, so please keep them coming.
Check out the 1:Tree App by TreeEra. This app is free to download, and allows merchants to plant 1 tree for $1 per order! The tree will go towards offsetting the carbon emissions from packaging and shipping.
