Good news: Here are housewares that do plenty of good for the world.
We’ve been following Goodee for the better part of a year, from the time Fan heard a talk by the founders—Canadian twin brothers Byron and Dexter Peart (formerly of WANT Les Essentiels)—to when Julie met up with the duo for a peek into their pop-up at the Whitney Museum in New York earlier this winter. The online marketplace offers a curated collection of home goods and stories from around the globe, and we love the bright, well-made, good-looking wares, made by artisans and creators all over the world. But there’s something else we love about Goodee’s colorful offerings: Behind each responsibly crafted object is a commitment to fair trade, eco-conscious practices, and ethical making.
The common thread among all of the blankets and baskets, wallpaper and tableware curated by Goodee? Good design and good purpose. The B Corp-certified online marketplace empowers makers and consumers alike to foster environmental, social, and community change through this global platform that champions fair treatment of workers, upcycling, and waste reduction. Goodee is also a new member of 1 Percent for the Planet and pledges to donate at least one percent of each sale to support nonprofits focused on environmental causes.
“A Goodee stamp of approval means that every item we offer is ethically made and transparently sourced,” the website says. It’s the kind of forward-thinking, purposeful, beautiful design we’re firmly behind.
