I like the simple and minimal aesthetic of the brand, however they feel just as meh as they look. None of the products i've used including hair care, body wash, multipurpose cleaner, etc... They all jsut feel pretty basic!

Great line of products. I was introduced to them through a podcast. I already have so many subscriptions so I didn't join the membership but their salsa and popcorn is SOOOO GOOD! I truly would go back just to purchase those two again!

I wanted to love Public Goods -- the mission & aesthetic are right up my alley. A kitchen full of Public Goods products would fulfill anyone's The Home Edit fantasies. While a few of the products have become staples in my house (in particular I love their fluffy towels & grain/lentils), but I'm a bit too particular about many items in my home too really embrace the full range.

I like the concept of the brand but I don't feel like the products are high quality. The dishwashing pods weren't very effective, the water bottle scratched very easily and now looks very ugly. The rest of the products I've tried aren't super memorable.

I love the price point and quality of products. I have ordered a few pantry staples over time and have been satisfied with the quality, specially given the price. I gifted a friend the herb grow kit and it has delivered spectacularly!

Feedback

I worry about the packaging and shipping carbon footprint for regular grocery and pantry items.

Great concept. Love the idea of unbranded, minimal basics in the home. The products from Public Goods that I've tried have been great - mostly toiletries and home stuff. I haven't ordered from them in a while and know they've really expanded their products since then, so I need to get on that!

I've been a member of Public Goods since just after their launch and I couldn't be happier. The quality of the products are great, they are constantly expanding their product lines, and shipping times are usually pretty quick. I've had some issues accidentally signing up for a 2nd account and Customer Service was quick to reverse the transaction.

Feedback

The minimum for shipping can be a bit high at $45 (it was $25 when I first joined)

I love the brand's commitment to sustainability, reducing plastic waste, and scaling their product offerings in a judicious manner. They are continually working with their supply chain to achieve this. I signed up for lifetime membership through crowdfunding website 4-5 years ago, and have been very pleased with their household brands and transparency to clean ingredients. The products also do work well. We have been very pleased with the products.

Feedback

Continue to improve on supply chain to source more locally; CBD products are expensive that is why I have not bought them

I'd finally listened to enough podcasts to give Public Goods a try. Mostly find that I like their cleaning products the best (the giant dish soap refills are a constant at my house). Didn't care for the vegetable bullion and I'm waiting out the end of the dental floss. As others have said, they add new products quite frequently. They also recently added a "surplus" section if you're like me and you like a little discount on your discount. Their customer service is top notch and extremely responsive.

Feedback

Would love to see more pet products added.

I've been with them since backing on Kickstarter years ago. High quality products, they're consistently adding new lines, and it's affordable and sustainable. Almost everything I've tried of theirs is a winner, and I'm always looking forward to what they add next.

Feedback

Wish the free shipping limit was a little lower, but I get it - shipping costs money and I accept that.
