Future Kind

FutureKind  was birthed from a dream to showcase the kind of goods that look good, and do good. FutureKind searches the world for the people, products and companies who’re onto a good thing: whose goal is distributing value that is not only fiscal, but social. Our goal is to advocate and provide access to the market with their ideas, and encourage an economy bent on exercising social good. Germaine is a designer passionate about branding and sustainability. She was constantly dissatisfied with mainstream products without traceability or accountability. Wanting to purchase well-designed, socially responsible products, she imagined the kind of store that she wanted to shop in. A store that pursued social goals and great design at its heart. She began developing a store that would bring these worlds together. A few years later,FutureKind was born. Our greater vision is to establish a collaborative platform between Non Government Organisations, fair trade producer groups, and designers throughout the world to develop new products for a mainstream market. We hope to create sustainable channels for trade development, and in so doing, help to create the kind of future we all dream about.
