Goodee’s Ethically Made Objects Make a Positive Impact on People and the Planet
Imagine shopping a trove of objects that are at once elegant and ethically made—no post-purchase consumer guilt necessary. That’s the concept behind Goodee, an online marketplace of homewares and clothing that make a positive impact on people and the planet. Founded by Montreal-based twins Byron and Dexter Peart—who famously kick-started the luxury outfitter Want Les Essentiels—the brand features products that embody a trifecta of virtues: It makes every effort to ensure that each piece is transparently sourced, socially conscious, and made to last.
Among its most popular offerings: undulating Pakurigo baskets handwoven by artisans in Ghana from locally sourced vetiver grass, vegan seaweed soap that cleverly uses coriander seeds and peppercorns as exfoliants, and the sought-after Goodee Hoodie, recently released in three new colors (dusty rose, Egyptian blue, and alabaster) and made from Egyptian cotton by the Canadian fashion and textile brand Kotn. There’s also a handsome German Douglas pine daybed from Danish B Corp Skagerak, topped with Kvadrat upholstery, and a Japanese windmill palm fiber “corner brush” designed to dust the undustable. Feel like decking the halls? Try these multihued Jipi Baubles tree ornaments, handmade from Jipijapa palm tree leaves by Colombian artisans in the Andes. For those on our gift lists, including the most discerning ones, we consider Goodee a safe bet.
