It is the season of giving and there’s no better way to spread love & kindness. Shop for a good cause this holiday and put a smile on someone’s face. Amidst our 'Box of Joy' movement to help the less fortunate children, we recommend 5 social enterprises that gives back to society for every purchase you make.
Trove of Gaia
Trove of Gaia retails a wide variety of sustainable daily essentials from bath & beauty products to kitchen & dining essentials. They aim to make zero-waste transitions and supports the World Wildlife Fund For Nature. With every purchase, a portion of their monthly sales proceeds will go to this organisation for wilderness preservation.
Furthermore, in the month of December, they will commit $1 to every purchase to One Tree Planted, an eco-charity that plants trees around the world to push for reforestation, and plant a tree under your name.
