WHAT WE OFFER
The Good Common Sense Store is one of the first, and most complete sources of safe and healthy products in the known Universe! We’ve been offering “alternative” goods for over 30 years; products that work great, offer superb value and foster healthy living. Imagine the impact if we all switched to safe products that improve the quality of our lives without harming the environment! As consumers we hold the keys to the future. Positive change begins or ends with each purchase we make. The Good Common Sense Store is a great place to find the essential stuff you need to live well!
WHY WE DO THIS - OUR MISSION
Yes we try very hard to be "light-hearted", but when it comes our core mission, we are absolutely, unwaveringly (is that a word?) serious. As consumers, we have the power to bring about positive, responsible change. Using safe and healthy alternative products in our homes, offices and in the workplace is a great way to make a difference! However, our core premise is that "We, The People Of The Earth" should no longer consider this a voluntary choice, but rather an essential key to achieving and maintaining individual health and happiness. Our mission is to help you the essential stuff you need to live well. Living well is always a matter of choice! May you choose wellness and enjoy, in health and peace!
MOSTLY TAX FREE PURCHASING
Currently, most PURCHASES made at The Good Common Sense Store are TAX FREE - exceptions include goods shipped to the state of Texas and locations in California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington. Many other states are trying to get in on taxing sales placed on the internet by their residents, too. So more are surre to be added over time. Sorry!

Our goal is to offer great products at great prices! Often you can save even more when you buy TWO (2) or more of the same item. Extra discounts are shown on each page (2/12.00 means you get two for $6.00 each). When you update the quantity ordered at check-out you per item cost will update to reflect your quantity discount.
REFUND & RETURN POLICIES
Needless to say, your satisfaction is the only rule. You must be totally delighted with our service and our products. If not, just let us know and we’ll do whatever it takes to make you happy.
We’ll replace any defective item immediately or refund your entire purchase price, including shipping, whichever is more appropriate. Just let us know within seven (7) days of receiving your goods, if possible. Of course, damages caused during shipment are the responsibility of the carrier. When this happens we’ll help with the claim and make sure you receive replacement goods as quickly as possible.
Sometimes you might receive an order in perfect condition, but find you don't really need it after all. In this case, we are happy to issue you a full credit for the amount you paid for the item(s), less the cost of shipping, as soon as the order arrives back at our warehouse in perfect condition. It's a good idea to "insure" the item(s) when doing a return so you can claim any damages that may happen during transit. We can also send you a "pre-paid" return label and deduct the cost from your refund amount.
As a rule, The Good Common Sense Store doesn’t charge “re-stocking fees” on returns sent to our warehouse. Should you decide to return goods you may have ordered by mistake to another location, such as when items were drop-shipped direct to you by the manufacturer, any fees incurred will be deducted from the total credit issued once the return is received.

OUR PLEDGE TO ONE AND ALL
The Good Common Sense Store is a member of Green America. We support their goal of building a “marketplace based on social and environmental responsibility and a spirit of cooperation in the workplace.” Two percent (2%) of our adjusted gross income goes to non-profit environmental groups and organizations supporting animal and human rights.
Every item we offer is produced cruelty free. Our ingredients reflect an holistic philosophy of healing, strengthening and protecting. We personally test every product, just as we carefully scrutinize each and every company before offering their goods in the The Good Common Sense Store. This is the only way to be sure we are offering great products that really are good for the Earth and essential to living well.
We really want you to enjoy doing business with us. We continually strive for the highest level of excellence in both quality and service. We do our very best each day to lavish our customers with honesty, sincere respect and a happy sense of humor!
We live and work according to a strict code of ecological and social consciousness. This includes more than producing and using safe and healthy products in our homes, office and workplace. It also means recycling everything, as well as utilizing only efficient, non-polluting production methods and waste disposal systems.
Forgive us for waxing poetic, but the central force driving all this wondrous labor is our simple hope for a better tomorrow, always and forever. Yet we know this can only happen if everyone is willing to work tirelessly toward continuous improvement at every level.
When we fail to live up to any of these principles, please tell us so we can do better. Please reach out to us anytime and in anyway for additional information or just to bounce around ideas.
Thanks so very much for sharing your light with ours! We look forward to your growing trust and hopefully, your friendship. May you enjoy and prosper in “never-ending” health and peace!
