Fashion For Cause

I had my Toms on the other day and a friend asked me why I loved those ugly shoes so much. At first I had no idea she was talking to me because honestly I don’t wear ugly clothes! I began to explain to her that they were so comfy and versatile. In my rant I forgot to mention the most important part: this company gives back to the world. How can you not fall in love with a brand that wants to make a difference in the lives of others. This is when I began my search for other companies and stores that uphold these same values. Check them out and get shopping! I picked out some of my favorite pieces, and remember no buyers remorse here, just think of all the people you’ll help!

“Let’s get right down to it: No human being should be owned by anyone, anywhere, for any reason- ever. It really is that simple.We are passionate about India- where some of the highest estimates of slavery and sex-trafficking anywhere in the world are reported. And while it may seem overwhelming, we are hopeful because we are seeing how safe, sustainable jobs are making a way for women to make their way out of the trade- and stay out. That’s why we say that Sudara goods are made from hope, and made for comfort.”

“We are a trade initiative, and we work to create employment opportunities for women struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty. With collectives based in Rwanda and the USA, we see firsthand that real change happens with the dignity of work and the freedom of being self-sufficient. Our Rwandan artisans earn 15 to 20 times the average wage in Sub Saharan Africa, and 100% of net proceeds are reinvested to train and employ more artisans in need.”

“In the Winter of 2008, a young man walked into the Democratic Republic of Congo. Five escaped child-soldiers told him that boys, too small to carry a gun, were being sent to the front lines, armed with only a whistle. Since that day, a coalition of young and old, rich and poor, have fought – side by side – toward a dream most would call impossible. PEACE in CONGO Make their weapon YOUR voice. Be a WHISTLEBLOWER for PEACE.”

“FEED’s mission is to create good products that help FEED the world. We do this through the sale of FEED bags, accessories, and apparel by building a set donation into the cost of each product. Thus the impact of each product, signified by a stenciled number, is understandable, tangible, and meaningful. We take great pride in using natural fabrics and artisan-made materials, along with fair-labor production, in creating all FEED products”
The Givve Collection
“Every item featured on Givve is already associated with a charity.  Therefore each time you buy something you lovve from Givve, together we enable more money being donated to charity.  The charity and/or cause supported by each product is clearly listed underneath the item so its clear how you can do more through your purchases. My dream is that we inspire shoppers to change from shopping to givving!”
