We acknowledge and honor in gratitude and deep solidarity the Indigenous people past, present & future of the lands we exist on today. Cyclical Roots exists on unceded Wabanaki lands.

We are devoted to ethical, anti-oppressive business practices that advocate for intersectional justice and collective healing. We redistribute a portion of our profits to these movements, which you can learn more about below.

We acknowledge that forwarding funds is not the whole solution, but an important part of the whole efforts to rebalance equity in the midst of imperialism.

We advocate for;

  • our planet Earth
  • women, queerfolk, & all who are marginalized by their perceived, actual or raised gender
  • all individuals and communities marginalized by gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, ability, and religion
  • menstrual equity
  • reproductive choice
  • bodily autonomy, literacy and empowerment
  • empowered & accessible self-knowledge in line with collective healing movements
  • anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism and anti-fascism
  • & more
