7 Gifts That Also Support a Good Cause
Whether it's a Giving Tuesday splurge for yourself or a holiday present for someone that multi-tasks with a little social good, it's always a great time to buy something with charity built-in — especially after such a challenging year.
From vegan Cariuma sneakers that that support rainforest preservation, to Farmacy skincare that donates meals to families in need, to a very eco-friendly footwear that returns 48 liters of clean water back to the earth, and more, these presents give back, big time.
Several of the brands we’ve noted here have teamed up with charities to donate a portion of their proceeds. And while shopping isn't always the most socially conscious activity you can partake in, with this list, you can get in some good retail — while doing good the world over. Call it a holiday miracle.
