Our social and environmental commitment

Our social and environmental commitment - banner

We are committed to reducing our impact on the planet, and helping you choose products that directly respond to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, creating social and environmental impact.  


At Good Things we're inspired to seek out products that take action on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

We choose goods made from recycled and sustainable materials and avoid virgin plastic wherever possible, instead opting for natural materials like responsibly sourced wood, cotton and paper. Check out our growing plastic-free collection.

We stock hundreds of ethical and sustainable goods. On each product page you'll find details about what a product's made from, how it's made and its origin. If you have any more questions please get in contact and we'd be happy to help.

Our social and environmental commitment - products


We send all our orders in recyclable and reusable packaging. The packaging varies depending on the order but almost all the packaging we use is made from recycled materials. This includes kraft paper tape, newspaper offcuts and recycled paper for cards, labels and stickers. We are very aware that reusing is far better than using new materials so where we can we reuse packaging sent to us, and we encourage you to do the same!

Carbon neutral delivery

While we're trying to reduce our impact as much as possible, moving goods is an unavoidable part of what we do! We're working on some exciting green delivery options (sign up for our newsletter to stay posted!) and for now we offer carbon neutral delivery by supporting groundbreaking technologies that remove carbon for a minimum of 1,000 years.

Supporting charities doing good things

We also pledge 20% of any surplus to charities doing Good Things too! Find out more about how we've been taking action on climate change by protecting precious forests in Ecuador, Mexico, Belize, Brazil and Argentina in partnership with the World Land Trust.
