Now Introducing…Give Back Box!

September 14, 2016

Peanut butter and jelly, bed and breakfast, Hall and Oates. Partnerships like these bring beautiful things to society.

Through Give Back Box, you can leave your donations for pick-up at your doorstep using an easily downloadable, printable, pre-paid shipping label. When you reuse your boxes to send donated clothes, books, accessories, and household items to Goodwill, you support its mission to help people find work and strengthen their families. Give Back Box also promotes a healthier environment while reusing boxes and keeping them out of landfills (including those shipped with love from us here in Brooklyn and others you just happen to have on hand).

You can schedule pick up from your doorstep, eliminating the (we’ve-all-been-there) problem of a well-meaning donation bag sitting at your doorway or in your trunk for days, weeks, or months. Here is how:

For the vegetarians among us, barbecues can be tricky. There aren’t always enough non-meat options. That’s why UncommonGoods has called upon its community of creators, bakers, and bloggers. We asked: “What’s your favorite vegetarian barbecue recipe?” This is what you all came up with.
