Welcome to Simple Good | Long Island's First Zero Waste Lifestyle Shop
At Simple Good, we put people and planet above profits and carefully curate zero waste goods that are ethically made, plastic free, cruelty-free and organic. We help you live more sustainably by offering an ever expanding Refillery, where you can bring your own container and fill it with non toxic self care and cleaning essentials like laundry detergent, all purpose cleaner, face toner and much more.
Giving back is so important to us. Most of the small, family owned brands you'll find at Simple Good donate a portion of their profits to a number of social causes. In 2021, we co-founded the LI Center for Environmental Activism (LICEA). If you are local, you can join us for FREE classes and workshops on composting, recycling, going zero waste and so much more!
We strive to leave nothing behind. This means that in most cases our products come package free, or, with minimal, recyclable and compostable packaging. We provide non toxic alternatives to common self care and home goods that are still highly effective, but are without any unnecessary throw-away plastic packaging or toxic ingredients.
At Simple Good, we are much more than a retail store. Shopping with us means you can trust that the products have been made ethically and are fair trade. Our friendly staff is well educated on the benefits of our products. We are more than happy to answer your questions and provide suggestions on where you can begin your journey to a more sustainable home. Our customers typically start by swapping out a disposable product for a reusable product, and then continue to make more eco friendly swaps at their own pace.
Simple Good is a judgement free zone! We all started this journey slowly and try our best, but do not lead a perfect zero waste lifestyle. We often quote the words of Zero Waste Chef Anne-Marie Bonneau:
"We don't need a handful of people practicing zero waste perfectly. We need millions doing it imperfectly."
In 2021 we expanded into the shop next door, for a combined 2000 square feet of good vibes! We've added hand made, small batch artisan goods and sustainable apparel with a very Bohemian, modern aesthetic!
Simple Good is located in the idyllic Chandler Square in Port Jefferson, New York, right across the street from Port Jeff Harbor.
Make Love, Not Waste
