Give. Better. Gifts.

What’s the big idea?

There’s no shortage of options in this world when it comes to buying gifts. Many people would argue that there are too many. So why on earth would we introduce another one? Why should anyone shop with One Good Thing?

Well, for a start. we promise that for everything you buy, something good will happen in the world. Your gift may mean that a tree gets planted, it may mean that harmful plastic is removed from the oceans, or it may have been made by a survivor of human trafficking, but it will make a real difference.

Our partners are each carefully selected for a few factors: First and foremost it has to be a good quality, well designed and well-made product that someone would be proud to own regardless of any other factor. Secondly, it needs to show a direct and tanglble impact and aim to solve a visible problem

And lastly it should be awesome.

We Sell Gifts That Give 3 Times…

  1. You feel good about buying a gift that really matters
  2. They feel good about receiving something with meaning
  3. It genuinely makes a difference to causes around the world that need your support

 

That doesn’t often happen with panic-bought gift vouchers…

We Aren’t A Charity.

We’re all for charities but we aren’t one. We are a for-profit social enterprise supporting other social enterprises across the world. Our belief is that this model offers an effective solution for many of the issues we see in the world today and can solve problems that charity alone cannot address.

Article 22 – Transformation Story – Loss to Gain

Inspired By A Rude Awakening

We don’t live in a tent or walk the world barefoot, we sometimes buy things that we don’t technically need and we don’t drive solar powered cars. We aren’t eco-warriors.

We didn’t start this business to preach, We started it because we got scared:

One of our co-founders; Bridgett was diagnosed with cancer in early 2016 shortly after giving birth. It was a scary time but everyone came through the other side with a realization that time is not guaranteed and that if you have an idea, you might as well go for it. Perhaps it was time to do things a little differently.

The idea was simple enough; to support innovative, sustainable social enterprises around the world, give them a platform to expand their reach. To help them grow and to ultimately support their causes by making it easy for people to find all these great eco-friendly and socially conscious gifts that are out there. The only question was, would anyone go for it?

Well, only you can answer that…
