This year I’ve noticed a shift among my friends and family when it comes to gift giving. Everyone is wanting to give better, more thoughtful gifts purchased from stand up companies. So with Christmas just days away, I wanted to tell you about one my favorite places to find those gifts. UncommonGoods is an online marketplace that connects artists and makers of sustainable, handmade products from around the world with individuals looking for truly uncommon goods.
UncommonGoods is independently owned, which gives them the freedom to support causes they believe in and impact the world in a positive way. With every purchase you make, they donate $1 to the non-profit of YOUR choice. They are a B Corporation. That means they use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. UncommonGoods CEO Dave Bolotsky is passionate about the role of business in implementing a fair minimum wage. They run all operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal. The lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage.
There’s a little something for everyone–find curiosities for the home, anything and everything for the ladies in your life, or something personalized for your favorite newlyweds. Each product features a picture and story about the maker so you know who your goods are coming from. Here are a few of my favorites . . .
