Now Coveting: Purposefully Made Goods for the Garden from Goodee

April 29, 2021

This just in: Goodee—a Black-owned business, certified B-Corp, and our go-to source for eco-minded, ethically made, cheerful wares for the home—is venturing out of doors with a new collection of purposefully made goods for the garden.

The online marketplace, founded by twin brothers Dexter and Byron Peart, is committed to environmental and social change, fair trade, transparent sourcing, waste reduction, and conscious living. We’re longtime fans of their “good design meets good purpose” ethos—and the hand-crafted wares they offer by makers and artisans around the globe. Now, their collection of well-designed, responsibly crafted gardening essentials follows suit, with organic cotton aprons; good-looking, made-to-last tools; and artisan-made baskets and planters.

Take a look at what we’re coveting for our gardens:

The Gardening Tool Set (\$90) from certified B-Corp Barebones includes a spade, a cultivator, a square hoe, and a pair of shears, all made from durable, made-to-last walnut and stainless steel.

The Hori Hori Ultimate & Sheath (\$55), also by Barebones, is a handy all-in-one tool for camping, gardening, and outdoor explorations. Inspired by traditional Japanese gardening knives, it includes a double-edged stainless-steel blade, a flat base that doubles as a hammer, and a hook blade for opening bottles and comes with a waxed-canvas sheath.

Among Goodee’s new candles is the Sweet Sunflower Candle by Kobo (\$\28), made with eco-friendly soybean wax and a cotton wick. Best of all? It comes in biodegradable seed-studded packaging that can be planted in the garden.

A must for potting and working out of doors: The Creative and Garden Apron (\$54) by The Organic Company is made from organic, hardy cotton canvas and features five pockets for keeping tools handy. It’s available in dark green, clay, and black (shown).

Above: We like the colorful, intricately woven Baba Tree Market Basket (left, $100), shown here in orange, ideal for harvesting produce from the garden or trips to the market. It’s made by skilled artisans in Ghana, where fair-trade company Baba Tree is invested in the local artisan community. The hand-thrown terracotta Edge Pot Ø15 by Danish brand Skagerak (right, $65) is inspired by ancient Greek-Egyptian craftsmanship.
Tools at the ready in the Creative and Garden Apron, shown here in dark green.
