For the past several years, we set for ourselves an ambitious goal of educating consumers how to look for better, ethical alternatives to the things they buy, and why it matters. When we began, the market was at a crossroads: it seemed likely that big corporations such as Amazon would swallow up all the local shops rooted in community values and fair wages. UUSC created The Good Buy to bolster the conscious consumer movement and began partnering with small producers and artisans. We slowly saw the market rebound and the movement grow—committed to supporting local, sustainable, and durable goods, made with loving attention to the environment and with respect for the workers who produced the products. We were happy to be on the forefront of calling attention to the true price we pay for convenience and helping consumers to think more deeply about what sustainable living truly means. Now there are more choices out there than ever, and we hope you will take advantage of the increased availability to live out your values for environmental and economic justice. Thank you for being on this journey with us.
