Some people need to know where their dollars go when they purchase. We know this because we are some people. Whether it’s a company’s charitable efforts, their carbon footprint, or simply who they are, we want to know how our purchases affect the world around us. This is why SomeGoodBuys exists.
Inspired by John Krasinski’s Some Good News, we are the leading curator of good buys – products, services that you can feel good about buying. We are a community of conscious shoppers who value putting out good out in the world, starting with spending our money.
We provide a place where conscious shoppers can spend their money how they feel is best. We can’t tell what’s most important to you, but we can light a path that leads you towards your own GoodBuy.
Brooke Robinson – Founder
With inspiration from John Krasinski’s Some Good News, Brooke wanted to develop a hub for ‘feel good’ buys that differentiates brands from a sea of sameness. Some Good Buys was shaped with Brooke’s expertise from over a decade on the forefront of digital advertising along with her passion to build talented and innovative teams!
After launching her own consulting business in 2018, Brooke spearheaded the creation and expansion of AdParlor’s performance-marketing division. Prior to AdParlor, Brooke was instrumental in advancing Sun Life’s online ambitions, leading every aspect of the company’s first foray into social media before accelerating paid media efforts at GroupM and Publicis.
Brooke leans in on anything artistic with her taste music described as eclectic, including an intense love for Weird Al Yankovic, whom she has seen perform in concert five times to date.
