Hey friends, I’m super excited for this post because I’m spotlighting 5 fabulous brands that are socially responsible in some way, shape or form. I originally wanted to compile a ginormous list for y’all, but that would’ve been the longest post ever so I decided to break it down. This is the first of many to come so please keep an eye out. I don’t ask you guys to share my content all that often, but this is something I hope you share with your friends and family. Let’s do all that we can to keep brands like this in business!
If you’re a fan of colorful jewelry, you’ll fall head over heels in love with Pura Vida – think next level arm swag that’ll elevate your casual outfits tenfold. Founders Griffin and Paul hire artisans all around the world – from Costa Rica to India – to make beautiful jewelry, and now 650+ people have steady income in great working environments thanks to the support of PV customers.
Each bauble is handcrafted so you’re getting a unique piece each and every time. As if that weren’t incentive enough, they also have charity collections where you can support specific causes like Anxiety Disorder Awareness, Billion Baby Turtles, Boarding 4 Breast Cancer, and more.
It’s no secret that I love Elegantees. I’ve been an avid supporter for years, and I’m so happy to see them grow. They sell really great clothing that will last decades – think classic basics that every woman needs in their wardrobe.
3. Society B
Think of Society B as a charitable marketplace. They launched back in 2015, and their goal was to combine cause with commerce. On top of offering fair trade goods and products from brands that are socially responsible, they donate 10% of their profits to reputable charities to make as much impact as possible. They carry everything from apparel to baby gifts so there’s something for everyone.
4. Warby Parker
I feel like everyone and their mom knows about Warby Parker, but I still wanted to include them on this roundup because their eyewear’s amazing and their cause is bomb. For every pair sold, they give a free one to someone in need – they’ve donated over 4 millions glasses to date, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon.
If you’re worried about purchasing eyewear online, don’t fret. They offer free shipping and returns, and they let you try on frames at home for free so you’ll be buying something you love.
Animal (and coffee) lovers unite! I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love G&H. First of all, their coffee is SO good – I love that it’s fair trade and organic, and honestly, that’s reason enough for anyone to purchase their coffee, but on top of that, they donate 20% of their profits to rescue initiatives and organizations. Hence the name, Grounds and Hounds. Do yourself a favor and try getting your caffeine fix from G&H – you can come thank me later. PS. they sell beans, ground coffee, AND pods!
