Welcome to 10 Things, where we ask our favorite creatives and tastemakers to share what brings joy to their lives (because it might enhance yours, too).Twins Byron and Dexter Peart founded the eco-conscious, artisan-championing online shop Goodee in 2019. Based out of Montreal, they aim to “work exclusively with artisans and products that make a strong social or environmental impact” through the brand’s own designs as well as curated ethical goods sourced from makers around the globe. Here, they share the 10 things that make them happy, from Domino‘s Summer issue.
