*UncommonGoods reached out to me and provided me with a few free products in exchange for my honest review of their products and services. While my items were paid for, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*
If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time, or follow me on instagram, or just know who I am, you will know a few things about me:
- I am a teacher and teach social studies. More specifically, government, economics, and history of the Holocaust.
- I am also knows as the crazy cat lady, and lastly
- My toothbrush is never near a toilet (GERMS!!!) Ok- we may have never discussed this but you should know this.
When UncommonGoods reached out to me and I went on their website I immediately fell in love. They offer creative and exciting merchandise and work with suppliers - from artists to small manufacturers - to make their products in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner. As I was looking though each item there is a blurb about each individual artist.
They feature products that contain recycled components and have not sold products containing leather, feathers or fur - their goal is to sell no product that harms humans or animals. YAY!!!!
They also created the Better to Give Program in 2001, which allows you to select a non-profit organization to receive a $1 donation from us at checkout with no charge from the customer.
Ever since listening to Hamilton:The Musical I have become obsessed with the history behind the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. When I saw these on the site I knew these glasses had to be mine! I found these under the Geek Gift section, and yes, I would think that describes me perfectly. You can find other Geek gifts here, and these exact cups here. I have the perfect spot on my desk for these beauties!..
|Mommy, these are now mine.|
The last thing I ordered from UncommonGods was a phone sanitizer. With the sweat from running, germs from being around students or other people, I can only imagine how dirty my phone is. I once watched a special on TV and it told me the particles from the toilet when flushed can fly up to 25 feet, and ever since them I have never kept my toothbrush out or near a toilet. If we go away for a weekend I make sure to always keep it in my toiletry bad. Once at work my toilet fell into the toilet and the first thing I did was run back to my room and took alcohol wipes and wiped it up (Note: I had NOT gone to the bathroom yet. When I saw the phone sanitizer I knew it had to be mine. When Behn has to go to the bathroom, the phone is always in there with him.

I love their anniversary stuff. Being just 3 months away from our 1 year anniversary I almost purchased a sign for our bedroom since we just painted it.
When I was done placing my order I loved that I was able to chose what charity I wanted the company to donate to. The website is user friendly and I am sure that you can find gifts or anyone for any price range
Have you found any cool sites lately you think I should try out?
