I’m not a fashion blogger- although I try to share some fashion posts and pictures. This is one that I wanted to post for a long time and kept putting it on the back burner. I originally wrote it for a Step Up article and wanted to share it here also with a few tweeks. So without further ado, here is my post on shopping that gives back.
Sevenly is like the holy grail of shops that give back. They donate 7% of the products you buy to several different charities. It offers all kinds of handmade items that are ethically made and socially conscious like shirts, mugs, jewelry and tons more. They work with charities that support military families, teachers and more!
Bracelets that change lives?! I’m in! 10% of the proceeds are given to CASA for children. TGB has an abundant of cute and special bracelets for you to choose from and they do custom orders that might be named after you-brb going to make a bracelet and hope they name it after me!
They just rolled out their November surprise box! There’s nothing more than a good mail day and this box ensures it! Not only are their shirts seriously awesome (and pretty much everywhere), but they give 10% of their net profits to save the elephants. Besides adorable shirts, they they sell water bottles, accessories, jackets, intimates and bottoms.
A GIANT wind gust just shook the house and I’m reminded that I’m lucky enough to be sheltered from it. Others aren’t quite so blessed. Since
we are heading into the colder months we’re in the colder months, this company is the place to go! Their mission is that when you buy a hat, pair of gloves or a scarf they give a warm item to someone in need. BONUS: their products are made in the USA.
I’m slightly obsessed with them. The original pocket tees? So effing cute! Serengetees started with 2 college kids collecting fabric from all over the world. They started making t-shirts in their dorm room, now they boast shirts, headwear, accessories, bags and home goods. Not only do they support the people who make the fabrics by buying them by the truckload, they also donate 10% to other causes.
I’m a giant bookworm (I’m finally ahead of schedule with my book reading goal!) so I’m pretty much lusting over everything there. A portion of their proceeds go to literacy programs and book donations to communities in need. They sell t-shirts, accessories, home and office even baby clothes! P.S. I needed this pin like yesterday.
If you’ve seen this post and this tweet you know that I’m a total dog lover so this site warmed my heart. Sometimes I can’t stand to go to shelters because I want to adopt all the animals there. Best Friends Animal Society strives toward providing animals a safe, loving and forever home. Each purchase helps them fund their campaign.
What I love about Amazon Smiles is that you pick the charity you would like to donate to within your regular Amazon purchase (come on, you know you’re always shopping there).
What sites/stores have you discovered while shopping that gives back?
