As my friends already know…I love shopping. Its an addiction really. I do A LOT of shopping (sorry honey). I do most of it online, because then I can stay home in my pajamas and live that “messy hair, don’t care,” life. Am I right ladies?? So one of my New Years resolutions was to make more socially conscious purchases…and so far I have discovered some amazing companies that really do some amazing work worldwide and right here in our communities. I do my best to buy local and make sure my hard earned dollar is spreading the love to small businesses and people who are working to make the world a better place. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Forever 21 and Target as much as the next shopping obsessed female and definitely indulge in their endless products and I bear no shame in doing so. However, I sleep a little better at night knowing that some of my money isn’t simply being dumped into a CEO’s pocket and furthering a black hole of corporate world domination. Anywhooooo….here are some examples of companies and products that give back in some manner!
Both of these scarves are hand made by DebrosseNYC, an online textiles shop where proceeds from each purpose got to Haitian orphans.
Here are some links to more shops to check out for more socially conscious goods!
