The Good Food Guild showcases goods designed with a consideration of product life cycle and made with transparency in the supply and manufacturing chain.
The Good Food Guild relies on the expertise of the goods community to develop, revise and set standards for the category. As textile sourcing and manufacturing practices evolve, so do our standards. Read on to learn what those standards are and meet the designers and artists of the Good Food Guild.
In order to join the Good Food Guild, goods companies must meet the following standards for at least 50% of their product line:
- Made in the USA or US territories.
- Made with a balanced objective of local, organic and highest quality.
- Made with respect for workers, offering a safe environment with fair compensation.
- Made with transparency in the supply and manufacturing chain.*
- Made without toxins or harmful chemicals.
- Designed with the following goals in mind:
- Reducing, repurposing, or recycling of materials.
- Consideration of product life cycle
*That is, an earnest attempt is made to verify the origin and production methods. If made with textiles that are not grown domestically on a commercial scale, a farm-direct or certified organic source is sought out and documentation of this search, including notes on calling distributors, is provided.
