Holiday Gifts that Give

 Lush Charity Pot: A moisturizer that donates 100% of proceeds to environmental charities? Ummmm. Yeah. I’m on board with that. For sure. Straight from their website: “With every purchase of Charity Pot, we donate 100% of the price (minus the taxes) to small grassroots organizations working in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights.”

Grounds and Hounds Coffee: Did you say coffee? Oh, we did. And this one helps the pups, so, sure, we’ll have a cup.

“Ground & Hounds Coffee Co. makes and sells quality fair trade and organic, specialty coffees. To give back, 20% of the company’s sales help support animal rescue initiatives and organizations that provide a second chance for dogs in need.

The Locket Sisters: This is us! We donate 25% of all proceeds to a different charity each month. Ordering a locket is simple: Choose a locket style, upload your photo, and we get to work making it. Be sure to order your locket by Monday, Dec. 10th to get it in time for Christmas.

B.A.R.E Soaps: I feel like it seems really obvious right now that all of the gifts we’re telling you about are ones that we want for ourselves. Am I okay with that? Yeah. Totes. And these soaps look so amazing. Plus, they give you updates on where 20% of proceeds are going so you can actually keep up with your do-good-deeds-while-shopping lifestyle. Cool, right?

3seams: Ok, so we know the women who run this organization and we can verify that this company is so driven by their mission. Their mission is to fight poverty and human trafficking through affordable fashion. They’re always at pop-ups, flying across oceans to meet with their partners, and share the goods that the women make. We personally love their earrings and printed pants.

Flowers for Dreams: Our sister, Stacy, told us about this company based in Chicago and Milwaukee.  In fact, we were so inspired by their work that we decided to donate 25% of our own proceeds to charity. But this company is all about the flowers. And they’re so so so pretty. The only catch is ya gotta be in Mke or Chi to get them. Who do you know there?!

State Bags : SWOOOOON! We’re so in love with these GORG bags. But their mission? That’s what really gets us.

“STATE was created to address the immediate needs of local children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances.

For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success – to a local child in need; but our commitment goes beyond simply a material donation.

STATE Bags is proud to be a Benefit Corporation, accompanied by fellow companies creating public significance by having a material, positive impact on society.

The STATE Mission: To make beautiful, well-made, inclusively cool product while using the power of business to give back and shift narratives around social injustices.”

So good, right?
