Our Impact

Curious to know how meaningful our impact is? After three years of operation, we’re thrilled to share our second Impact Report. Discover all the ways we made a difference in 2021 for people and for the planet we call home.

In a world where the things we consume have begun to consume us.
And our lives are so filled with stuff that we’ve left little room for happiness.

GOODEE is hope.

We are a community of socially-conscious design enthusiasts who put "caring" for people, and the planet, at the center of everything we do.

Where the products we support, services we love, and ideas we champion reflect our unwavering pursuit of a happier and more sustainable future for all.

And while there is power in good design, we believe there is infinitely more in design for good.

It's why we wake up every day challenged to understand and improve the world around us; and it's why we rest at night encouraged by the positive impacts (big and small) we're making along the way.

After all, we believe consumers are the new curators. That quality provides clarity. And "less, but better" can only lead to a kinder, smarter, more beautiful world.

Welcome to a world of good people doing good things.

Welcome to GOODEE.

Our Story

GOODEE is a leading curated marketplace offering essential homewares and lifestyle products for better living. Our values are simple: we believe in good design, good people, and good impact. Driven by an unrelenting desire to co-create a world that’s smarter, kinder, and more beautiful, we built a platform centered around responsible brands and artisans producing timeless everyday objects and consumers looking to make a difference with their purchases. We believe conscious commerce has the power to transform the world and seek to empower both creators and consumers to create change by championing community, transparency, and sustainability.

Our Founders

In 2017, designers and entrepreneurs Byron and Dexter Peart embarked on a new mission. After founding the acclaimed brand WANT Les Essentiels in 2007, the twin brothers set out on a new venture to launch and develop meaningful brands dedicated to offering sustainable solutions for modern living. This time, however, the pair decided to work exclusively with artisans and products that make a positive social or environmental impact. GOODEE leads the way in curating a marketplace that brings together the values of good design, good people, and good purpose. With a creative and passionate team split between Montreal, New York, and Paris, Byron and Dexter act as creative directors for the global online platform — a unique destination built around storytelling and impactful products.

In Good Company

True to our values, we’re setting a good example by designing our own range of sustainably crafted GOODEE products. We also tirelessly seek out like-minded makers and doers who are using their vision to craft a more considered world, so we can bring them to you. From home decor to accessories, and home fragrances to personal care, each essential item in our collection is carefully selected and vetted by our in-house sustainability team for its thoughtful design and impact. A GOODEE stamp of approval means that every item we offer is transparently sourced, ethically made, and designed to last. Our brand partners report to us on their materials, supply chain, labor standards, ecological footprint, and business practices. Inspired by the UN’s sustainable development goals, we are uncompromising in our standards and that’s something we feel good about. And as you explore our products and brands — each telling its own authentic story — we know you’ll feel the GOODEE spirit, too.

We believe in the power of storytelling. By sharing the stories of the creators, the artisans, and the entrepreneurs who inspire us, we want to shine a light on the moving stories behind our products and amplify diverse voices with unique perspectives. As sharing thoughts can spark new ideas, we want to provide a welcoming space for reflection and meaningful conversations, and inspire positive action to make the world a more beautiful place. We believe that magic happens when your circle gets wider and your table gets longer. So have a seat and make yourself comfortable: You'll be in good company.

We're A Certified B Corp™

Certified B Corporations are companies that operate in ways that benefit people and the planet, and pass a rigorous assessment by the non-profit B Lab. By joining the B Corp community, we’ve become one of only 3500 companies worldwide that are leading the way in using business as a force for good. This certification shows that we’re transparent in how we work and take responsibility for our social and environmental impact (See Our Score). It’s our way of holding ourselves accountable for using business as a force for good. And while our B Corporation® Certification validates our mission and values, it only marks the beginning of our journey. Today, we’re excited to be a part of a global community of businesses striving for positive change and look forward to growing our impact in a meaningful way.

We Are Climate Neutral Certified

Everything we do has an impact on the planet. Being Climate Neutral Certified means that we’re taking responsibility for our environmental impact. Carbon offsets have been a starting point in our certification journey — they’ve offered an immediate way to mitigate our impact. But we’re not stopping there: Since our biggest environmental responsibility lies in the products we create, source, store, and ship, we’re also making changes in our supply chain to lessen our footprint and be a part of the global climate solution.

We Commit 1% For The Planet

A global movement co-created by renowned environmentalists Yvon Chouinard and Craig Matthews, 1% for the Planet inspires businesses and individuals to give back to the Earth in a way that’s impactful and long-lasting. Since we believe that taking care of our beautiful home planet is everyone's responsibility, including our own, it was only natural that we should join 1% for the Planet to deepen our commitment to a more sustainable future. As a proud member of 1% for the Planet, GOODEE now pledges to donate at least 1% of every sale to support environmental non-profit organizations. Watch this space to find out how we’ll be contributing.
