Organic Good Market plans to curate an in-person store (when it's safe to open) with USA made, safe and chemical-free products.
We will reply on third-party certification and verification sites such as USDA and NSF, Non-GMO verified, MADE-SAFE, EWG verified, Fair-trade and Cruelty-free.
We will carry Snack Safely and other products for those with dietary restrictions and certified Vegan products.
All packaging will be made from recycled materials, offer post-consumer recyclable packaging and include FSC certified packaging. No single-use plastics will ever be sold. We will partner with Terracycle and collect deposits on recyclable packaging which customers will be able to return for a credit.
We are planning to become B Corp Certified, a 1% for the Planet Business Member and join the American Sustainable Business Council, the Female Founder Collective, and the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) - we will also feature fellow members. We will carry products that are created by female, latinx and black-owned businesses.
All paper products will be tree-free. We will carry as many biodegradable products as we can. We will offer refills on many of the core products that we sell. Reusable shopping bags will be rented and sold. Customers are offered a 10¢ credit for each reusable bag that is filled at purchase. Subscription services will be available for repeat shopping.
Customers can expect workshops and educational talks, product demonstrations and samples, as well as informative emails and a well-thought out blog.
Consulting services will be available for families that want to convert their households to chemical and plastic-free with safe products for their entire family.
Every wood panel, light fixture, floor piece, countertop and chair will be available for purchase. The products we sell will become part of the fabric of our store and in turn, and if interested, you will be able to purchase their products directly through us.
The letters of the alphabet will correspond with the letters of the US states and the numbers of the week; we will highlight products by each state weekly, year-round. Members will save on products and be able to buy new products first, in turn for a modest monthly membership fee.
