Online shopping is always super fun, so you might as well be supporting a cause while doing so! There are hundred of companies out there that have missions to contribute something greater to society and to support a number of causes. Here are some of the adorable companies I have come across that spread great messages and support important groups.
If you are looking for some cute summer jewelry and accessories, and also want to support a cause of your choice, Pura Vida is the place to shop. Pura Vida is famous for their beautiful colorful string bracelets as well as their metal wave design of rings and bracelets. The company started in efforts to support impoverished bracelet artisans in Costa Rica, and has since expanded to support small artisans around the world. Not only do you get to support the makers of the products, but Pura Vida has also partnered with over 100 other charities. There are unique bracelets you can purchase that range from causes such as Saving the Dolphins to Diabetes, to Down Syndrome Awareness. Anyone can find a cause they’d like to contribute to while purchasing their adorable items.

This amazing brand was started by two college students looking to donate hats to kids suffering from childhood cancer. As the company has grown, they now are able to donate 50% of their profit to support the cause including research and other resources for childhood cancer. Another cool aspect about the company is that you can write a letter to a “Superhero” suffering from cancer right from their website. Most popularly, the company sells a wide variety of cute and comfortable beanies with their logo on it, but they also sell other items such as caps, headbands, pillows, blankets and candles. Childhood cancer is a devastating issue that plagues our society and by purchasing these high-quality products you could make a difference in a child’s life.

Sunglasses are a summer essential, so why not help those in need while you are buying yours! Diff Eyewear has the most beautiful and unique sunglasses I have ever seen, and for much cheaper than designer sunglasses. Not to mention that several big names have collections with the brand such as Demi Lovato, and Jesse James Decker. The best part however, is that Diff has a buy one, give one program in that every time a pair of Diff sunglasses is purchased, a pair of reading glasses is donated to someone in need. The company partners with several charities in order to do this and also works to support Ugandan artisans who hand-make sunglasses pouches that are sold on the website. What a cool company!

This clothing brand is one I have been seeing continuously coming up in my Instagram and YouTube feed, so I decided to check it out and I was NOT disappointed. Grey Bandit has a small array of beautiful clothing that changes for the season. The pieces are unique and trendy, and decently affordable as well. Perhaps the best part of this brand is the message that they stand for. The founders are advocators of mental health and they state that they aim to reduce the stigma of mental illnesses through this brand. They even have a collection of pieces called the Care Collection from which 20% of the proceeds are donated to The National Alliance on Mental Illness as well as The Kind Campaign. Not only can you buy cute trendy summer pieces from their site, but you can support a cause that such a huge portion of our population suffers from.

Who doesn’t love some thick, comfy and fun socks? Fazl Socks has the cutest patterned socks, each style with their own names standing for things such as Family, Peace, Comfort and more. The socks are handmade in the Himalayas by women who benefit greatly from the ability to work, and are able to receive fair wages for their amazing talent. Along with supporting these women, 50% of the profit from the products goes to supporting orphaned children in India. Their socks would be the perfect thoughtful gift for anyone you know!
Next time you go to fill up your cart on your favorite clothing website, consider looking into shopping at a company that you know is putting in the extra effort to positively contribute to society!
