Goldune facilitates sustainable exchanges
Living sustainably, or at least, more sustainably, is hard to do. Composting in New York simply won’t happen (my trash was way too smelly). Even though I know there are tons of other trades to do, I kinda feel like I need someone to organize everything for me, to make my shopping experience more sustainable. easy. It’s there that Goldune Between.
Think of Goldune as the Food52 store for sustainable products. They have everything I could possibly want in one place, including things that I didn’t even know were sustainable. For example, instead of using plastic food storage, I love their little pods, perfect for snacking on the go or just popping into the fridge for later.
They also sell cuter versions of some of our favorite reusable swaps. For example, their reusable tea towels having fun fruit designs that have always spruced up my kitchen (while largely getting rid of the single-use paper napkins I choose to use). They also sell Beeswax food packaging, another great way to transport and store food as opposed to single use plastic bags or wrappers. These have a fun design that you’ll want to use over and over again.
Maybe my favorite part of the site is their “New in sustainability ” column. Instead of exchanges that might be more difficult to achieve, they offer an array of suggestions that are good for the planet but won’t make your life harder and harder. I’m talking about plastic free sponges, tree-less toilet paper, even biodegradable silk peaks.
In short, Goldune’s mission seems to be that sustainability doesn’t have to be a burden – instead, swaps can be easy, fun, and even design-worthy. Shopping on their site definitely makes me forget that I’m even trying to be sustainable – I just want to be thanks to the way they organized it.
