So, remember when I went back to work last year and basically became an absentee blogger for a little while? Well, one blog’s loss is humanity’s gain. Through my work at a nonprofit in Memphis, I’ve learned firsthand the value of giving back. We can all do a little – or a lot – to make the world a better place, and that begins with our everyday actions. Most of us won’t have a wing of a children’s hospital named after us, but we can drive the extra mile to the locally-owned grocery store or spare a few hours volunteering on a Saturday morning when we could have been sleeping.
Small gifts yield big rewards. And UncommonGoods gets that.
UncommonGoods is all about making the world a better place for its customers, its employees, and the planet. Since 1999, UncommonGoods has worked with its suppliers – artists and small manufacturers – to ensure their products are made in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner, and it ensures that its employees are paid a living wage and that all full-time and most part-time employees receive health benefits. What’s more, UncommonGoods will donate $1 to the charity you designate at checkout. They’re paying it forward.
Oh, and also, they stuff on the site is freakin’ awesome.
