I am so excited to introduce you all to a new company today.  You are going to love them:

2nd Story Goods

I had the privilege of meeting Kathy, the founder of 2nd Story Goods, at a conference over a year ago.  She is a wonderful woman, with a heart of gold, working hard in Haiti  to make the her corner of the world a more beautiful place.  Here is the DL on 2nd Story Goods ~

What is 2nd Story Goods? :

2nd Story Goods is a community of impassioned women and men striving to create beautiful products and sustainable incomes for our families. Watch the video on their homepage to get see all the details!

What do they do? :

They work in the town of Jubilee, Haiti to nurture the growth and development of an inspiring group of artisans and entrepreneurs.

What is the meaning behind the name 2nd Story Goods:

The name 2nd Story Goods was inspired by the idea that they take human lives and raw materials and create new stories with them.  As you look through their store you will see that the materials they use are all recycled, this  gives those resources a second story and enables the artisans to create an income thus building lives of self-sufficiency.

Who are the artisans? :

2ndSGThis is Benson, a journal maker, teacher, and entrepreneur, who is transforming the town of Jubilee through his business.  You can read more about him here AND you can win one of his journals in the giveaway at the end of the page!!!!!

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
