    Fashion That Makes a Difference

    We all love to shop, and the great news is that all types of awesome companies exist that allow you to give back to people in need. Fair trade products ensure that the people making them are treated fairly and properly compensated for their work. The items are often a little pricier than what you might find in discount stores, but they’re well worth it when considering the lives you can change. The companies below exist with the mission to help people around the world through fashion!

    TOMS – This is probably the most well known brand of its kind. With every product purchased, the company provides one for a person in need, whether it is shoes or glasses. TOMS has given more than 100 million pairs of new shoes to children in need and helped restore sight to more than 200,000 people. While at one point TOMS was mostly for hipsters, their shoes have become increasingly versatile, cute and sturdy over the years. They have expanded their product line to clothes and accessories as well.

    International Princess Project – These loungewear trousers, called Punjammies, are made with hope by women in India who have escaped human trafficking. The organization invests in the freedom and dignity of these women and girls who are working to forge a new life for themselves and their children. Many of the women come from former lives as slaves working in India’s infamous red light district and brothels. They have escaped and are allowed to live and work in the sewing centers and support their families. Each pair of Punjammies is named after a woman who stitched the product. The pants and tops are incredibly comfortable and lightweight, and have the most amazingly intricate patterns.

    31 Bits – This jewelry company was founded by five friends who were juniors in college. After traveling to Uganda, they realized that many of the women there grew up during wartime and had no resources or income, but were making incredibly creative and beautiful jewelry out of old magazine boxes. The girls began selling the jewelry in America, streamlined the process and turned it into an entire fashion line sold in major retail stores across the globe. Initially popular with college-age girls, 31 Bits now has a large variety of accessories that include casual, high fashion and even wedding wear.

    Krochet Kids – Believe it or not, this organization began with three high school boys who learned to crochet their own winter wear for snow sports and started selling it to classmates. After traveling to several developing nations on mission trips, the guys realized they could teach the skill to impoverished people in Uganda and Peru, and turn it into their livelihood. The beanies, scarves, socks, bags and more are super comfy and stylish. Every product is even hand-signed by the person who made it.

    Sevenly – Every week, Sevenly’s followers team up to help bring funding and awareness to great causes. They commission the creation of “cause art” that celebrates the work of charitable partners all over the world. Every week a new charity is featured and $7 from every purchase goes toward the cause. Sevenly has a wide variety of products and brands and the artwork is constantly changing. The win-win concept has helped millions of people and raised millions of dollars.
