MacRae's Sustainable Goods provide both online and physical store shopping experiences.

Their eco-friendly and nature-aware approach is really inspiring. They even share an example mail body for you to send to any companies you like their product but lack some nature-friendly materials in their packaging.

As Bitti Gitti, we're honored to be partnering with Mac Rae's Sustainable Goods and hope you'll enjoy their collection as well.

Unique design objects

How did you start the MacRae's Sustainable Goods store?

I started MacRae's shortly after my son and I were doing a project for his second grade class on the garbage patches in the ocean. Hearing him ask me what people are doing about this made me feel like we could do something! To really make a difference a lot of people need to choose less plastic and my mission is to make that choice more convenient for the people in my community.

Can you tell us a remarkable story from a customer of yours?

MacRae's customers love the Bitti Gitti Wooden Sound System! I hear all the time about customers taking them to the beach and on picnics, which I love!

Online shopping or physical store visit? Which one is your suggestion?

We are pretty much exclusively a physical store (we deliver to a small local radius but do not ship). I want people to experience a thoughtful and uniquely chosen set of goods.

From your experience, does people buy more for themselves or for the loved ones?

MacRae's customers pretty equally purchase our products for themselves and for others. The Bitti Gitti sound system is definitely a popular gift but customers usually can't help but buy one for themselves as well!

Selection of the Wooden Sound Systems at MacRae's Sustainable Goods

How do you decide which products to sell in your store?

We thoroughly research everything we sell - it needs to contain safe ingredients, be affective and come to us without plastic shipping or packaging materials. We sometimes pick a product because it solves a problem we have experienced (like too much packaging!) and sometimes pick something because it is earth friendly and very cool (like the Bitti Gitti wooden sound system!).

If you could open another store in any city in the world(w/o any limitations), which city it would be and why?

If I could open another store anywhere in the world it would probably be London. My parents lived there while I was in college and I fell in love with the combination of English culture and melting pot of cultures from all over the world! I feel like Londoners would also be receptive to what we do here at MacRae's..
