10 Products That Help You Give Back
Donate to a good cause while you shop! Check out these unique home and kitchen gifts that give back.
FEED Wood Salad Servers
Do you want to purchase chic home decor items while simultaneously donating to end childhood hunger? The FEED brand will help you do just that. Through their partnership with West Elm, you can purchase several items like these beautiful wood salad servers ($29). With each purchase, FEED donates 20 meals to those in need.
Lucky Iron Fish
Need more iron in your diet? Plop The Lucky Iron Fish ($30) in the pot next time you make soup or another saucy meal. It’s made from specially formulated iron that, when boiled, releases into your food without changing the taste. And since iron deficiency—which can lead to anemia, weakness, impaired cognitive ability, increased risk of illness and more—is a global issue, the fish also gives back. With each purchase of a Lucky Iron Fish, a second fish is donated to communities where iron deficiency is a problem.
Celfless Celfie Vases
These adorable blush pink vases ($29) are perfect for displaying flowers, holding makeup brushes or simply styling a shelf. They’re from the Love + Hope Collection by High Fashion Home. And if you purchase a set, 40% of the sale will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to support its mission to find cures and save children’s lives.
One Hope Wine
One Hope wine was founded by eight friends who wanted to help people change the world while also creating a product that people could enjoy. They pair different wines with a variety of non-profit organizations, and each purchase helps support a different cause. Buying this bottle of chardonnay ($25), for example, helps fund clinical trials to find the cure for breast cancer. Next, learn how to properly store that wine.
Hand in Hand Bar Soap
Bill Glaab and Courtney Apple—the founders of Hand in Hand—stumbled upon an article stating 5 million children die each year from water-related illnesses. They also discovered that 45% of these deaths could be prevented with simple hand washing. They knew they had to find a way to help and were inspired to create Hand in Hand. For every bar of soap purchased ($6), one bar of soap and one month of clean water are donated to a child in need. P.S. Here’s how to wash your hands the right way.
Faucet Face Water Bottles
Faucet Face sells glass and stainless steel water bottles (from $12) in an effort to decrease plastic consumption and help the environment. Through its 1 for 100 program, Faucet Face donates 2.5% of all sales to the clean drinking water charity, Third Millennium Awakening (TMA). Plus, for each sale of five or more bottles, Faucet Face donates a clean water filter to a family in need in India.
Created Co. Mugs
Created Co. was started by two high school friends that always wanted to go into business together, create a community around their product and change the world for the better. When you purchase one of their quality-crafted mugs, like this black angle drip mug ($16), a portion of profits are donated to help fund clean water wells.
WAKA Coffee (from $12) is not your mom’s instant coffee. The founder, David, set out to make a high-quality and delicious-tasting instant coffee that keeps you energized throughout the day. WAKA Coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans and comes in a recyclable box. Ready to give it a taste test? Four percent of your purchase and all other WAKA Coffee proceeds are donated towards projects that help bring clean drinking water to 26 countries around the world.
