UncommonGoods, which is based in New York City, was founded in 1999. Some years later, in June of 2012, the social business was certified as a B Corporation.
The online catalog, retailer and marketplace offers quirky -- ahem, "uncommon" -- gifts for a variety of occasions. And maybe that's a present for yourself. Some of the products include baby clothing, fashion accessories, jewelry, leisure items such as cameras, books, games and children's crafts, office supplies and accessories for the home and garden.
What brings all of these products at UncommonGoods together is the B Corp's commitment to sustainability -- and not just environmental. They do seek out suppliers according to the text to which they have local, sustainable and fair trade items. A portion of sales also goes to a non-profit organization that you can choose through the 'Better to Give Program.'
