Current Crush: Companies that Give Back

I am in LOVE with companies that give back, and whether it is worldwide or right in your backyard, what matters is that these fabulous companies are making a difference! Because they are making a difference, I try to make a conscious effort to support them because of the good they do! There are so many out there that a) there is no way I have enough time in the day to highlight all the great companies that do amazing things to impact our world and b) I didn't want to overwhelm you with too much info, so I will do some follow up posts with more of my favorites, because it was getting a little lengthy. You are welcome. :)


Toms is probably one of the more famous for its One for One charitable giving of a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of shoes purchased from them. So go purchase yourself a new pair of kicks knowing that its also doing good for someone else in the world. Plus, you can look forward to participating in One Day Without Shoes in 2013 as they raise awareness of the impact that a pair of shoes can have in the life of a child by going without shoes.

Some of my favorite TOMS:


People Water gives Drop for Drop. For every bottled water purchased from People Water, they will give an equivalent amount a clean drinking water to a person in need. Plus, they have some very neat opportunities, like becoming an ambassador, hosting an event, and interning. AND they have awesome t-shirts that tug at your heartstrings with slogans like, "We are not asking you to change anything except the world", and "Unsafe water kills more people every year than all forms of violence including war".

Tide Official Site
Tide sponsors an amazing program called the Loads of Hope Program. It's a program designed to help families affected by disasters. They show up to disaster sites, set up remote laundromats and wash, dry and fold clothes for families affected by the disasters. How cool is that? And I guarantee it is so appreciated by the people to provide such a basic need, so they can focus on grieving, and rebuilding without having to worry about clean clothes. Best of all you can show your support by purchasing a vintage t-shirt, here. 

Each year Burt's Bees partners up with 40+ organizations whose initiatives they support, often volunteering in communities and neighborhoods. They love to work with Habitat for Humanity and take on projects that beautify and uplift such as the Sunken Gardens Revitalization Project they participated in recently. They also have a non-profit organization, The Greater Good Foundation that supports grass roots organizations working to eliminate the causes of social and environmental problems. How can you take part in the good they are doing? 10% of online orders of Burt's Bees products are donated to these fantastic causes!
