About Green Gooding
Green Gooding is a Brooklyn-based circular economy business driving customers to rent refurbished equipment (cooking, cleaning) instead of buying them. It's an opportunity for people to save money, avoid storing equipment and try new things. People can rent the equipment online or in-store through a QR code.
After months of research and networking, the first pilot was launched in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in July 2022.. The model rapidly grew from 3 types of appliances to over 15 types and reached over 100 customers in early 2023. In March Green Gooding was nominated as a 2023 NYC Circularity Champion by Barnard College, Columbia Climate School, and Manhattan Borough President, Mark Levine.
