About Us

Please also read this about how I got here

Thanks for stopping by! Like a lot of people, I have come to realize that our consumer purchases really do matter. They matter because what we buy, and where we buy from, can affect workers' health, their futures, our communities, and our environment.

Buying from sweatshops and from factories that don't provide safe working conditions means we help keep them in business. Buying too much plastic and materials that are bad for our environment means we contribute to the pollution that is endangering our planet. Buying solely from huge websites and big-box stores means we aren't supporting small businesses, keeping money out of our local economy, and money spent locally tends to stay in the community longer. And we aren't supporting the artisans that keep handmade traditions alive.

Center Goods is a place where you can feel good about your purchase. Find things you need, that are good for people and our planet. Simple as that. We make it easy for you to be a conscientious shopper.

At Center Goods you can find eco-friendly, plastic free, sustainable goods like bamboo toothbrushes, deodorant cream in glass jars, toothpaste tablets in a compostable wrapper, reusable straws, compostable bags, beeswax candles, and a lot more!

You can also use our refill station: bring in any container (or purchase one from us) to refill your hand soap, shampoo, lotion, laundry detergent, and more with our natural, non-toxic home and personal care products.

You just weigh the container first, then refill as little or as much as you want. Refills are a great way to cut your waste, especially your plastic waste!

We only carry non-toxic, natural products made by ethical companies. We care very much who is making it, how they are making it, and why they are making it.

We strive to be a local resource to help reduce waste, and a place where we can support each other as we work together as a community to reduce our waste, raise awareness, and create political will to ensure legislators fight for our environment.

Additionally, Center Goods supports important causes by donating to organizations who are making a difference in many ways, all over the world. That way, your purchase goes even further, and matters even more.

Thank you for caring! And please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, product suggestions, or feedback. I would love to hear from you.
