Good Stuff is not just a subscription service, but also a social network of Canadian change-makers. We are striving to become a brand leader in socially- and environmentally-conscious living by working with partner charities to give back and reinvest our profits to do even more good.– Vanessa
Ethically-sourced products can be hard to come by these days. In our consumerist world, businesses are often designed to drive bigger and bigger profits, which tends to happen at the expense of people and the planet. This practice has significant negative impacts on our world and the people in it.
Though I understood this from a young age, I continued to purchase from large, name brand companies. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to purchase from smaller, more socially-conscious businesses, but rather that I simply didn’t know about them. Many of these brands lack the expensive marketing and production budgets of their bigger competitors, and struggle to make themselves known in the incredibly competitive world of e-commerce.
Thankfully, there is now a brand that will do the investigative work for us. Good Stuff Box is a quarterly subscription service that features environmentally- and socially-responsible lifestyle products from companies operating in Canada. Good Stuff is following in the footsteps of other social purpose businesses which measure their success not only on profit, but also on their commitment to community, society, and the environment. This is often referred to as the ‘triple bottom line’ approach, with the three measures of success being people, the planet, and profit.

The products included in Good Stuff boxes are ethically- and sustainably-produced through fair business practices and with high environmental standards in mind.
Each product will have a purpose and an impact beyond its obvious, immediate value. For example, the packet of tea might support a local food bank, the scarf might be made of recycled materials by members of a women’s cooperative, the salt might be hand-harvested from pristine Canadian waters, supporting the local ecology and economy.
All of the products are extremely high quality, are made with great care and attention to detail, and have a vibrant story behind them.– Vanessa
Subscribing to The Good Stuff Box is an opportunity to change the world starting from your home, creating a ripple effect that stretches far beyond that single purchase. We are all capable of making a difference, starting with the smallest of steps.
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”– Robert F. Kennedy
I want to show my customers that these companies exist, that they are doing great work, and that purchasing everyday products and gifts can have a positive impact, if you choose the right products from the right companies.
Good Stuff is just that… a box of nothing but good products from good brands doing good work to tackle major social and environmental issues. Good is just what we do. You could say it’s in our name.– Vanessa
