Step 2: Get to know your member portal
This is where you'll find all the information you need on your customers, referrals, commissions, as well as tools like files and images.
Step 3: Start growing your network
You can get started by emailing close contacts right away. When you're ready to start sharing with your wider community, come back and move through all the steps.
Send an email
The first and easiest thing to do is use our intro email to share product and environmental information with your network
Hosting a party is a great way to share information about reducing single-use-plastic packaging. Scroll down for more about parties
Host a party
Social media is a powerful tool to build your network. As a member, you have a unique coupon to share with your customers
Think about neighborhood businesses and non-profits who want to reduce single-use plastics
Send out that first email
Make a list of friends and family who will be excited about increasing their sustainability at home (and also think about who might not be excited but who might need a nudge towards living more sustainably). Send an email using our easy template.
You've read through our information slides but if you get a question you can't answer, email or chat with us so we can get you the information you need
Host a party
After the last few years, we're all looking to make personal connections, hang out together, chat, share a drink. You are a leader and people want to hear what you have to say. Gather a group of friends, family, and neighbors
Step 4: Start selling!
The more you put in, the more you get out. Here are some tips on how to make the program a success.
Here are some of the things we've learned about selling Common Good products over the last 10 years:

- Don't assume people know much about sustainability

- New parents and homeowners are open to trying something new
- Keep it short and sweet
- Showing and feeling are better than telling
- Know the facts
