Happy Labor Day

September 04, 2016

Some say Labor Day weekend means the end of the summer, the chance for one last day at the beach or a final summer cookout with family and friends. But remember, the true meaning behind this holiday is its dedication to the achievements of American workers. We’ve got lots to celebrate this holiday weekend, but we can never take the well-being of our workers for granted.

To be sure, the global economy is complex,  but we believe everyone deserves a living wage and a sustainable livelihood. Your purchases from the Good Buy have always supported UUSC human rights programs that advance workers’ rights in the restaurant and agricultural industries.
Want to show even more love for the earth and its workers? Shopping ethically with The Good Buy means buying sustainable and ethically sourced products that directly benefit local artisans and producers, here in the U.S. and around the globe. Help build a more equitable world with a few of our favorites below.

  • USA-Made Collection
    Celebrate American ingenuity and small-businesses, whose workers are the real engines of the economy. And these goods have a shorter distance to travel to your door, so chalk up another win for the environment.
  • Equal Exchange
    Join a movement to support small-scale farmers! One of our oldest fair trade partners, demonstrating the power of bringing farmers and consumers together to build a more equitable, democratic, and sustainable world. Choose the world's best chocolate, coffee, and snacks!
  • Ethical Eats
    Browse other delicious treats made by worker-owned, local producers, many of whom are small cooperatives in danger of being replaced by multi-national corporations who have little regard for workers' rights.
