Fashion for the Better: Brands that Give Back!

This past week, sheBOOM celebrated #GivingTuesday by profiling companies that give back.

The coming week will focus on fashion and beauty and the women who launch businesses in this highly-competitive category. What better way to bridge the two topics than to profile some of the brands that help women look good AND make the world a better place?

This season, as you’re accessorizing yourself for parties or gifting colleagues & friends…

Browse these amazing women-founded brands with a purpose:

  • Urban Zen by Donna Karan sells handcrafted furniture, accessories, and apparel made by artisans. The store supports the Urban Zen Foundation that helps support the lives of at-risk youth to connect with their mind, body, and soul through yoga and other health and wellness efforts.
  • Same Sky jewelry founded by Francine Lefrak believes all women under the same sky should be treated with fair pay and should receive the education they need, and each piece of jewelry you purchase helps achieve this fairness.
  • FEED founded by Lauren Bush has provided over 95 million meals to hungry children around the world.

Ethical fashion brands have been around for a while. Here’s a great overview of some of them. And sheBOOM always looks to Sharon Rowe and Lindsay Ellen Brown (who we recently profiled) as being the style-setters in green chic.
