UncommonGoods | Sustainable Living

Manufacturing standardization in general has taken a step away from sustainability and fair trade initiatives, BUT a U.S. based brand has a surfaced with an UNCOMMON way of doing business.  UncommonGoods’ specializes in unique gifts and creative finds with an emphasis on sustainability, quality customer service, and online retailing innovation.

Recieving their B-Corporation certification in June of 2012 – you can see on paper that UncommonGoods is committed to doing good through their operations.  Their intuitive interface gives consumers the ability to interact with a quality online brand that offers a variety of products that are creatively designed, high quality, and affordable.

In the video above, The Stump Collection is reviewed.  From the ideas to how the product is manufactured – you’ll see and feel the inspiration that UncommonGoods strives to find in each of its manufacturers.  They’ve also launched a program called “Better to Give”, where customers can give UncommonGoods the opportunity to contribute to a non-profit organization each a customer shops with them.

UncommonGoods operates on standards that all businesses should follow, and that consumers should support.  UncommonGoods’ business functions around social and environmental responsibility and has become a change agent for the online retail world.  Check out their goods and various initiatives at www.uncommongoods.com , and be sure to review their B-Corporation Impact Report at www.bcorporation.net/uncommongoods.
