Good Deals on Good Buys

November 28, 2014

So here we are. The biggest shopping day of the year.

All weekend, big box retailers will be looking to you to cash in on the backs of workers and the earth. Instead of waiting in line overnight to spend money at businesses that don’t share your values of economic and environmental justice, consider the Good Buy's hundreds of handpicked gift ideas that are sweatshop-free, union- or cooperative-made, and environmentally sustainable.

Your purchases are packed and shipped by union staff in Cambridge, Mass., not faceless robots or underpaid workers in an offshore warehouse. We practice principled operations, purchases, and processes every day, putting our social justice values into action and helping shape a new economy that utilizes solidarity and cooperation — not exploitation.

How’s that for a holiday miracle? You can celebrate the spirit of the season and honor those you love with by giving ethically sourced gifts! And these feel-good gifts go a step further: net proceeds support human rights programs around the world.
