Our next Instagram Challenge theme is COMMUNITY. There’s no guidebook to show us what a community is supposed to look like. It’s a concept that holds a special meaning to everyone and, with modern technology, it can live virtually anywhere. Here at UncommonGoods, we know we wouldn’t be anywhere without our passionate and diverse community. When we think of our community, we picture our neighbors in Brooklyn, our inspiring artist family, our fellow B Corps partners, our team, and, most importantly, we think of you. Whether it’s breaking bread with your blood relatives, or watching Community with your closest companions, we want to see what this concept means to all of you! While sharing your photos, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstaFun to be in the running for a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the creative entries we’ve received so far and scroll down to view inspiration from UncommonGoods’ community. (Check out #InsideUG to see more team photos!)

Instagram Challenge | So long, Summer | UncommonGoods | #UGInstaFun

The next Instagram Challenge theme is SO LONG, SUMMER! Fall officially starts September 23, which means we have about one week to soak up the last bits of the most carefree season. Though we were ready to trade in the sticky heat by the time Labor Day rolled around, we know that we’ll be longing for ripe tomatoes and sun-kissed skin by the first snowfall. Join us in giving summer a proper goodbye by sharing your favorite moments of the season! While sharing your sunny shots, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstaFun to be in the running for a $50 gift card. Visit here to see the entries we’ve received so far.

Have a great rest of the summer!

Instagram Challenge: BACK TO SCHOOL

September 1, 2015

Instagram Challenge | Back to School | UncommonGoods

The next Instagram Challenge theme is BACK TO SCHOOL. The end of summer vacation usually accompanies a deep sigh heard ’round the world for students. But instead of feeling like we’ve reached a dead end in the year, there’s something special about September that always signals fresh beginnings. Even if you’re decades past your high school graduation, there’s no denying that there’s a familiar shift of energy this time of year; a feeling that there are endless possibilities ahead.  Whether it’s your organized collection of school supplies (#ThingsOrganizedNeatly), your favorite new lunch-to-go, or your child’s creative academic crafts, we want to see how you’re kicking off the school year! While sharing your scholastic shots, be sure to use the hashtag #UGInstaFun to be in the running for a $50 gift card! Visit here to see the entries we’ve received so far.

Have a great school year, everyone!
