Inclusion + Diversity

Equally important is our commitment to inclusion. Basic Goods wants to make sure that inclusion isn't just a performative catchword. We're taking actions to ensure that we're embracing diversity AND using our platform to empower by:

    • inclusive--suitable for all genders and skin types

    • created by BIPOC owned brands
    • created by LGBTQ+ owned brands

Taking 15% Pledge to commit a minimum of 15% of shelf space to Black-owned businesses.

Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, shop, and online presence where BIPOC are seen, heard, and valued.

Collaborating with BIPOC artists, writers, creators, activists, etc and compensate fairly, credit their work, and help grow their audience.

Empowering BIPOC by using our platform to:
    • amplify marginalized voices
