Our Products & Pricing

All of our products have been thoughtfully selected and intentionally curated to offer you an assortment of truly special items across a variety of lifestyle categories. Our goal is to offer products for a conscious home and sustainable lifestyle that are both beautiful and practical, that serve a purpose and allow you to live a little lighter.

Because we are a small shop, working with mostly other small, independent makers and ethical businesses that are forced to compete in a less sustainable mass market, mark-up is quite low compared to mass produced versions of similar products. This makes it challenging for us to offer deep discounts and frequent promotions. We do our best to pass on great value, and offer savings whenever possible, but the discount may be smaller than what you're used to seeing at larger retailers.

Our Packaging

All our packaging has been carefully sourced and selected to be as gentle on the environment as possible. We reuse boxes and packing materials that we receive from our suppliers as much as we can, and any packing materials we purchase such as kraft paper, tissue paper and notecards, are all made from recycled materials and can be recycled again.

Our packing peanuts are made from corn starch, are 100% biodegradable and will fully dissolve in water. Even our labels & packing tape are made from recycled materials and printed with plant-based inks, making every single element of the packaging as earth-friendly as possible.

Our Partnerships

Pōedik Inc. is a proud business member of 1% for the Planet which is a global organization that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive. As business members, Pōedik contributes at least 1% of our annual sales to various environmental causes working towards a better future for our planet.

Our Principles & Core Values

Since the very beginning, and before we made any assortment or business decisions, we identified a list of 10 Sustainability Values that were core to our business and fundamental when making any of our purchase decisions. To make it easier for you to identify the sustainability values in each of our products we have created icons to represent each one. You'll be able to see the icons that apply to a specific item on each of the product pages.

Our Philosophy

We believe in having a strong set of values that help guide us towards making the right decisions for our customers and the planet. We also believe that living sustainably should be beautiful, approachable, accessible and inclusive. With that in mind, we aim to create a destination of high quality, elevated essentials, and build connection with our community through inspiration and conscious simplicity.
