We know if you are a purpose-driven vendor or producer, you love your work, and you are committed to making a positive impact. You work long days, often nights, and too many weekends in an effort to bring your vision to the world. Why? Because you believe in the positive impact you can make.
First off, Kudos to you. At guudguuds, we know that it takes vision and lots of dedicated work to create, launch and grow a small business.
As a creator of ethically and sustainably sourced goods, you’ve put your heart into making high-quality products that reflect the change we’d all love to see in the world. You have done the legwork to find resourceful ways to give back to the causes you care about most. The only challenge is you’re struggling to get your products into the hands of your customers.
That’s where guudguuds comes in. gg created an impact marketplace designed to connect ethical vendors like you to conscious customers searching for great products that do good.
At gg, we are more than another eCommerce website. We’re on a mission to create real, lasting change by building a community of like-minded do-guuders through online shopping, brand promotion, inspiring storytelling, and gamification. gg is a rich environment where entrepreneurs, intentional shoppers, and thoughtful community members can come together to have fun, share and empower each other.
So, if you are an inspired entrepreneur, we wanted to share 10 really good reasons to sell your ethical and sustainable products on guudguuds.
1. Reach Your Target Audience
One of the hardest parts of any business endeavor is getting the word about your goods out to the right people. The gg platform is geared towards attracting individuals who are already interested in making a difference. These are conscious consumers who are looking for products like yours. They are shoppers who already have their list of favorite sustainable brands, and they are looking for more. Since gg only includes the best of the best, our shoppers and community members know they can trust the gg curated and recommended brands.
2. We’ll Bring The Clicks
SM, SEO, and FB ads are marketing strategies that can add up. You might not have the resources to market your products and promote your business the way you would like to, but our team of savvy strategists brings new customers to our site every day; we are attracting a critical mass of consumers eager to browse and buy. As a guudguuds vendor, you bring the ethical products and inspiring stories, and we’ll bring the clicks and customers.
3. Tell Your Story
Why you care, what you care about, why you started a business is your unique story and your most valuable asset. At gg, we share your story and what makes your products and business so impactful in your words – not ours. We believe that good storytelling is the secret ingredient to success, so we make sure our vendors are equipped with tools and resources to help them get their message heard.

Trust us, at guudguuds, you’re never in it alone. Our wildly creative guudguuds team is dedicated to helping you get known and attract business. We offer a wide spectrum of support services, including a Vendor Concierge, strategy consultation calls, and more. When you succeed, we all succeed.
