Basic Goods is committed to sustainability, inclusion and transparency. Each brand we choose to work with and each product we curate is carefully chosen to ensure it is healthy for you and for the planet. The criteria we look at are:
Each product must meet a minimum for 4 of these and as we continue to improve the website we will include a checklist on each product listing showing you exactly which of these the item meets. As we grow, so will this list.
Every order is packaged for shipping with materials that are recyclable or biodegradable. Please remember to reuse and recycle!
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:
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.
Keep an eye on this space! We have lots of exciting projects in the works and we'll post updates as they're live and in action!
