Unfortunately, green design has been considered very unsexy for far too long. Luckily, according to B Lab Co-Founder Jay Coen Gilbert, we are moving toward a stakeholder capitalism, where business is not only concerned about creating value for shareholders, but also concerned about creating value for society, the workforce, the community and the environment.

As Earth Day celebrates its 45th anniversary this year, it’s hard to believe that the concept of “going green” is still relatively new. While we’ve come a long way as individuals to evaluate our environmental impact, the countless designs that we interact with on a daily basis have, too.

Erin Rose Gardner's work speaks to a sort of modern prohibition that’s happening now, the war on pot. “The modern prohibition movement is part of the current conversation,” said Erin. “It seems like we may be at the beginning of the end with individual states voting for legalization. I find it interesting to think about how political policies shift social norms.”

In 2010, Joe Demin bought a Mlabri hammock while traveling in Thailand. He was so smitten by the hammock, that he took a 600-mile detour into the jungle to meet the tribe. He then quit his job and devoted himself to amping up sales so that more of the Mlabri could work without seasonal slowdowns (when they’d have to return to slash-and-burn farming). He and his girlfriend Rachel Connors created a company to accomplish that.

To expand the market for the Mlabri hammocks, the duo has worked with organizations like the Unreasonable Institute and Kiva, which, like UncommonGoods, is a B Corp.

A Positive Impact: In the Workplace, In the World
Introduction

UncommonGoods (www.uncommongoods.com) is an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices.

We carry thousands of cool gifts for men, women, and kids. You’ll find the best present ideas, from fun jewelry and accessories to creative home decor, personalized gifts, and kitchen items.

At UncommonGoods, we believe that creativity and the expression of individuality represent two great human treasures. We have set out to create a business that makes uncommon goods accessible to everyone.

Founded in August 1999, UncommonGoods is privately held and headquartered in New York City.

We prominently display the names and stories of our featured artists throughout our website and our catalog. We offer a wide variety of handmade, upcycled, and recycled goods and are committed to the environment (our print catalogs are printed on recycled paper--30% post consumer waste--and all our merchandise is produced without harm to animals). 

Through our Better to Give Program we donate a portion of each order to your choice of non-profit organizations: American Forests; Women for Women International; Reach Out and Read; and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).
