Sustainable Shopping: Eco-Conscious Everyday Goods from a Family-Owned SF Company

ardent do good sponge set

In a time when everyone is searching for sustainable products that are just as effective as their chemical-filled counterparts, we admire Ardent, a family-owned business from the San Francisco Bay Area. Their goods range from homemade soap to water bottles and bags, with the shared feature of non-toxic and natural materials. As Ardent puts it, they sell “elevated everyday goods you can feel good about using.”

Ardent practices what they preach in terms of running a sustainable company. They reuse all of their shipping peanuts from bulk supply shipments and encourage customers to reuse theirs as well. On their website, Ardent has a blog where they explain aspects of clean living, showing how their commitment to promoting ethical homeware goes beyond selling their lovely natural products.

Here are a few of our favorite items.

Solid Dish Soap from Ardent
