About Us

We're in business to make the world a better place for us, and future generations to come.

ABOUT COMMONPLACE

Fair wages, recycled goods, women's empowerment - these are just some of the topics that we're deeply passionate about here at Commonplace. We're striving to create a world where the standards that we hold our partners accountable for becomes commonplace in the industry.

Our goal as a social goods marketplace is to promote varying products tied to a social cause, making it easy for folks to incorporate social good efforts into everyday products that are being used.

With the world becoming increasingly interconnected, it's our responsibility to rethink issues ranging from sustainability to global poverty. By supporting conscious companies, we're hoping to accelerate the social good movement and take us towards accomplishing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our vision is to create a world that is sustainable and empowering - a world where companies are conscious of their production efforts, treatment of workers, and materials used.

All of our partners are deeply passionate about the cause they're rooting for.
