Happy Summer! We hope it’s off to a great start!
I’ve found that since we started this venture last year, I’ve become much more aware of spotting “brands that care” in my daily routine. You can find them at the mainstream grocery stores, coffee shops, boutiques, and even the big box stores. For example, at the grocery store, Newman’s Own (salsa, pizza, cookies, etc.) has been a leader in using their brand to raise money for charity. There’s also King Arthur Flour that fights hunger, and Endangered Species chocolate bars that support conservation efforts and give you delicious guilt-free indulgence! At Starbucks, their Ethos bottled water and the This Bar Saves Lives snacks are easy, on-the-go choices.
Whenever possible, I certainly try to support those companies, even if it means spending a tiny bit more. It’s so exciting when you realize that an already awesome food or product is super-duper awesome because of its mission. We’re a bit biased, of course, to the jewelry and accessories we offer, but there is a growing list of amazing companies that allow you to “shop with purpose” across categories.
We are continually impressed with the social impact that our current partner brands are making. Here are a few of their recent updates:
Follow, like, share, and shop to support the brands that stand for something greater than profits. In a world bogged down with negative news, those companies’ and individuals’ good deeds can help restore faith in humanity. And as more consumers get behind socially-conscious product lines, the shopping landscape and positive impact on the world will only get better and better!
