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:
Above: The stainless steel Barebones Large Scissors (left, $28) make precision cuts and can be used with or without gloves, while the Small Scissors (right, $26) are small enough for the tiniest of spaces and stems. Both have an ambidextrous grip.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.
