PUBLIC GOODS

Beyond the fact that I am a total sucker for simple black and white branding, I am pumped to have a one stop shop for our household goods through Public Goods. I value efficiency above most things. I make lists for all of my to dos, meal plans, groceries, and anything else that has the potential to suck precious time out of my day. I get overwhelmed when I have to choose between products and then frustrated if I’m not happy with the end result.

Not only does Public Goods eliminate the stress of deliberation, their products are clean inside and out. They have carefully thought about the product materials as well as the packaging they are shipped in. They avoid using trees and instead have opted for bamboo and sugar cane. They don’t test their products on animals, plant a tree for every new member and don’t include harmful chemicals. I could go on and on.

To put it simply, the Public Goods experience functions a lot like Costco or Amazon. You buy a membership to have access to prices that don’t break the bank (even in American dollars), products that are aesthetically pleasing in any space and don’t hurt you or the planet. Shipping is free to Canada over orders of $100 and if you’re still not convinced you can do a free trial to check out the products before officially signing up.

Essentially the goal is to reduce the time spent deciding on a product, and so for each item there is only one option. My most recent order included items ranging from toilet paper and toothpaste to rosemary and agavé syrup. There were some shampoo and conditioner refills (because buying new bottles is unnecessary), tampons, laundry detergent pods and gluten free pasta, all of which were quick and simple selections.

Some items I have loved from orders so far:

1. AYATE WASHCLOTH & STRIP – I am terrible for exfoliating and so tried the washcloth first. I loved it so much that I bought one for my husband as well as the strip. The strip is awesome because it has handles making it easier to clean harder to reach areas like your back.

2. SUNSCREEN – think SPF 50, water resistant up to 80 minutes, vegan and safe for babies. With comparative pricing to other name brands (even with the conversion from CDN to USD) I am into it.

3. WET SIPES – what parent doesn’t need an infinite amount of wet wipes. $5 Canadian for 50 hypoallergenic bamboo wipes, need I say more.

In an effort to be fully transparent, I have always been somewhat wary of influencer culture and the reality of people promoting things with the sole purpose of financial gain. And so, I greatly appreciated that I was given an opportunity to try some of the Public Goods products and guarantee quality before committing to be an affiliate. I have been gifted the occasional box of goodies but the majority of the items I have were my own purchases!
