To give you easy online tools to heal the world and
help people, animals, and the planet.
At the GreaterGood Shop, every purchase gives back to a
worthy cause, at no extra cost to you! Each of our
cause-related websites partners with non-profits
and provides support through many
different easy actions.
A portion of the purchase price of each item you buy
goes to your choice of these important causes...
We believe that no good action
is too small, and want to provide
you with simple tools to heal the
world. Since 1999, your online
actions have given $40 million to
charities around the world!
We prefer to sell products with
meaning, products which help
improve the world by their use or
manufacture. We give preference to
sustainable products, connected to
the issues we work on.
We believe that providing markets
for fairly traded products made by
marginalized people (especially rural
women artisans) is the best way to
reduce intergenerational poverty.
We believe that great products with
meaning are found world-wide and
want to sell items from every region,
promoting mutual respect and
understanding between all people.
Our business principles prevent us from purchasing prod-
ucts made by child labor or produced in
unsafe or coercive work environments.
We will not purchase products where the persons
involved in the production were not paid
a fair market wage.
We will not buy products that harm people or animals in
their use or manufacture. This includes products tested on
animals, or sourced from
wild or endangered animals.
We will not purchase jewelry or other items with
hazardous toxic material content, and will
test all incoming orders for lead so we can
completely comply with all regulations.
We will not purchase imitations of copyrighted
designs where the copyright holder has
not been paid a royalty.
GreaterGood and NOVICA have been working together for over 15
years toward the shared goal of reducing intergenerational poverty
worldwide. NOVICA was one of the first advertisers and
supporters of The Hunger Site and Ecologyfund. Currently,
GreaterGood and NOVICA are among the largest importers and
resellers of fairly-traded artisan products. The artisan sector is the
second largest employer in the developing world, and through
artisan activity communities can find jobs, sustain ancient
traditions, foster sustainable development, and at its zenith can
promote rehabilitation, reconciliation, healing, and empowerment.
Shop.GreaterGood.com is a unique collaboration between
GreaterGood and NOVICA. Creating this site gives GreaterGood
customers access to more than 3500 additional artisan products.
It also allows us to sell products on new channels, so GreaterGood
can sell more items, raise more money for charity, and have a
greater impact on people, animals, and our planet.
We are very excited about the new Shop.GreaterGood.com site,
and we hope that our customers find it a great place to shop
thoughtfully and do good at the same time.
Welcome! And deep thanks to our friends and partners at NOVICA
for making this possible.
