Uncommon Goods is a privately-owned retailer that features unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. They run all their operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, including their warehouse where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage! So cool! They make it their mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand. Most of the products they carry are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of their entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials! That's what I'm talking about! At the core of their company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is their responsibility to use their business to impact the world in a positive way. Also, as an independently-owned business, they have the freedom to support causes they believe in and positively impact the world. With every purchase, they will donate $1 to your choice of their not-for-profit partner organizations! Since they started their Better to Give program 15 years ago, they have donated over $1,000,000 dollars to charities around the world! Holy moly, this company is so much aligned with my beliefs and purpose in life, and is exactly what I strive for in my own business. This is how a company should be!
So here are 5 Cool Christmas Gifts that they offer!
I got it for my brother Ben, who is a guitar player in a Johnny Cash Tribute Band. They travel all over the United States, and even to a couple different countries, and have quite a following. They even got to meet Johnny Cash's sister!
Anyways, my brother collects hotel key-cards from all the hotels they stay at, and he will trace a pick onto it, and then cut it out, to make his own unique pick! So when I saw this pick punch, it was literally perfect for him!
