All Good connects communities by sharing returned goods with local charities and families
All Good, a registered 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization, started with the idea that we can do better, together. Building bridges within our communities and solving important problems, like eliminating waste in our society, benefits everyone. All Good’s team understands that technology can be a double-edged sword. While it can alienate, it can also facilitate. For us, things like data, automation and information systems are awesome enablers that we’re harnessing to provide a philanthropic distribution process for returned goods.
All Good works with commercial distribution centers to help customize and improve their reverse logistics waste streams. Put plainly, when a customer returns a product, the company decides whether or not to send it back through the supply chain for resale, store it or dispose of it. All Good sees this as an amazing opportunity. We use data to increase the efficiency of this process, so that local charities can benefit from unused goods, while distribution centers can save on waste disposal costs. Eliminating environmental waste is a win-win for all.
To kick off the formation of All Good, we’ve invited students at Loomis Chaffee prep school to participate in a design thinking exercise and overall research project. These young, bright minds are helping us strategize the best ways that All Good can offer returned goods to underserved communities while sustaining itself as a not-for-profit organization.

Daniel works as a Senior Operations Manager at PwC where he spends his days optimizing workflows, in pursuit of everyone and everything working together. Reading about the vast amount of waste in online retail, he became interested in experimenting with how we might bring greater efficiency to the donation process while improving community engagement.
This “experiment” has led to the formation of All Good where he’s leading the charge to demonstrate how a small group of people can come together to enact social change. We intend to spread the “all good” philosophy by leading by example and sharing stories that demonstrate the ripple effects of kindness.Read more
