Asch picked up Public Goods about three months ago, but with each month we have picked up more and more of their goods because, well, they’re great.
Public Goods’ mission is to make high-quality and healthy products that remain affordable. They understand that every purchase we make as consumers has an impact on our environment, our natural resources and the standards companies set for labor, manufacturing and distribution.
Public Goods is transparent about the products they create so they can offer a clear picture of their environmental impact. PG is moving away from single-use plastics and paper products. Currently, their bottles are made from sugarcane and made to be reused. Additionally, their paper products are tree-free and a majority of the products are biodegradable and compostable. They partnered up with Eden Reforestation Projects to offset carbon with every order placed by planting a tree.
Their business model is designed to maintain manufacturing costs without increasing the cost to customers. Most brands will contract manufacturers to create their products, apply their branding to it and increase the price by up to 10 times what it cost to make the product.
You can find a variety of Public Goods products throughout Asch, from Sunscreen in the Home division to flour and lemonade mix in the Market.
