We're in business to make the world a better place for us, and future generations to come.
Women's empowerment, sustainably made, non toxic - these are just some of the topics that we're deeply passionate about here at ourCommonplace. We're striving to create a world where the standards that we hold our partners accountable for becomes commonplace in the industry.
Our goal as a social goods marketplace is to promote varying products tied to a social cause, making it easy for folks to incorporate social good efforts into everyday products that are being used.
With the world becoming increasingly interconnected, it's our responsibility to rethink issues ranging from sustainability to global poverty. By supporting conscious companies, we're hoping to accelerate the social good movement and take us towards accomplishing UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Our vision is to create a world that is sustainable and empowering - a world where companies are conscious of their production efforts, treatment of workers, and materials used.
6 STANDARDS WE KEEP CLOSE
We love our partners and the world that they’re creating. To us, ethicality is just the baseline. In order to ensure that we’re stepping into a better world collectively, we curate ethical brands that are BIPOC-owned, Toxic Free, and Cruelty Free. Most importantly, we hold our partners accountable to at least 2 of these 6 standards and ensure that they are consistently striving for sustainability practices.
MEET OUR FOUNDER SUNNY WU
Growing up as a 1st generation Taiwanese American, Sunny has always strayed from what was expected and immersed herself in activities that she was truly passionate about. During her teenage years, that meant art, fashion, dance, and oddly, all things business related. Publications that she frequents include Vogue Business, Forbes, and Time Magazine.
Someone once said to Sunny to keep tabs on where her mind wanders during quiet moments, and that’s where she should explore opportunities of work. That, for her, ultimately became ourCommonplace, as it fell at the intersection of all of her passion points. She encourages everyone to find their “why” as it inspires clarity and meaning, while making life all the more exciting :)
