Designed by Nicole Whitted for Junior High, this set of magnets features 75 words and 19 blanks for making statements, writing poems or leaving messages. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Junior High exists as a publication, podcast, physical space (that they hope to reopen soon) and online store that strives to support, celebrate and serve marginalized artists. They’re able to amplify the work of women, queer and nonbinary artists and artists of color through crowdfunding, donations, sponsors and memberships (and, when possible, events and exhibitions). All their expenses are transparently listed online for those hoping to make a donation or purchase.
From Brooklyn-based Judi Rosen, this T-shirt makes a very clear statement with art by OKS (aka Oksana Todorova). All profits from sales are donated to the Bronx’s The Friendly Fridge BX and Harlem’s The Barrio Fridge—two organizations that work to reduce food waste and feed NYC communities. This shirt is crafted from fabric that’s been sustainably milled and sewn in California, and has been designed and printed in New York.
Sanitation Foundation, the official non-profit of the NYC Department of Sanitation, aims to clean up the city and make it more sustainable. The foundation benefits from each sale of Neighborhood Spot’s 100% cotton NY Clean Up long-sleeve shirt. Each shirt reads “New York, Let’s Clean Up, New York” above a cheerful illustration of someone doing exactly that.
With 20% of the proceeds from its sale donated to the Central Emergency Response Fund (a humanitarian unit established by the United Nations), this Nothing Lasts Forever/CORONA Soap by artist Nir Hod works double duty. The NYC-based artist collaborated with Prospect on the limited edition product, which is intended to create a simple, “magic moment” that users can appreciate every day.
Handcrafted from porcelain, Dutch designer Elke van den Berg’s mint-green watering pot is not just beautiful to look at, but is also ultimately functional. Dishwasher-safe, with a glistening inner-glaze that contrasts its matte outside, the pot features a slim nozzle—making it ideal for watering smaller, indoor plants. And if you’re a notorious plant-killer: it makes for a lovely vase. Price is in Euros.
Inspired by the Dada art movement, Dada Daily purveys everything from home accessories to guilt-free snacks—always intending to challenge the status quo and revel in a little opulence. The brand’s Vegan Milk Chocolate Elderberry Boob Truffles are also free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars. Creamy, decadent and playful, they come in a beautifully designed box of six. Additionally, each purchase results in a donation to the Carriage House Birth scholarship fund.
The sale of every one of Mello’s products results in 10% of the proceeds going to the Last Prisoner Project, an important non-profit organization focusing on bringing justice to the cannabis industry by working to free people who are incarcerated for drug offenses—many of which are actually legal now. A user-friendly edible, these sea salted caramels include 15mg of active CBD sourced in Colorado. Not only a tasty sweet treat, they also aim to provide benefit that include pain and anxiety relief, as well as help with sleep. Each box contains 20 caramels.
All profits from the sale of these statement-making earrings go to Space For Giants, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the vast landscapes that elephants depend on for survival. These earrings feature genuine freshwater pearls and gold uneven orbs that appear almost liquid. Each pair is handmade in Leigh Miller’s Los Angeles studio.
With a portion of the proceeds going to the National Parks Conservation Association, each sale of this sweet Smilin’ Sun Grandpa Hat results in a little more protection for America’s 421 recognized National Parks. Made from 100% cotton twill (and secured with a leather and metal buckle system), the five-panel denim cap features a large, fuzzy sun patch. It’s also embroidered with Parks Project on the side. Further, the cap comes in one size and should fit most adults.
Faherty’s slim, cozy Canyon Overshirt features their signature Mesa Skyline jacquard pattern in durable, brushed-out organic cotton. It’s an article for layering in cooler weather—with added functionality through two chest pockets. As the pattern draws inspiration from Indigenous art and weavings, Faherty donates 10% of sales from this product to the Lakota Way Healing Center. The brand’s ultimate goal is to have 100% of their “Indigenous-inspired prints” created by Indigenous designers, too—something they’re actively working toward.
With 100% of net proceeds donated to Every Mother Counts—a non-profit dedicated to making reproductive health, pregnancy and childbirth safer for women all over the world—this denim tote features a take on the French motto, “Liberté, égalité, fraternité.” Replacing “fraternité” with “maternité,” the design playfully takes on an important cause. The sturdy denim fabric means this tote (which features short and long carry straps) is robust enough for groceries, books, baby gear or anything that needs to be lugged around.
Born from a partnership with Pittsburgh-based organization First Mile, Puma’s Erupt Trail running sneakers employ yarns made from plastic pollution collected in Taiwan, Honduras and Haiti. This silhouette is the first from this sustainable collection, but it’s also a continuation of a refresh of the Puma brand that commenced a few years back. Referencing design-forward footwear both past and present, this iteration offers high-performing tread and support systems and plenty of stylish finishing touches.
Made using just three ingredients—aloe, South American soap bark extract and coconut-based cleanser—this dishwashing block from Well Earth Goods is designed to reduce plastic and packaging waste in the kitchen. The soap is crafted to cut through grease and grime, as well as sanitize food-stained surfaces. It can also be used on stains in fabrics (from apparel to carpets) and thanks to the infused aloe, it’s gentle on skin.
Part of Patagonia’s Worn Wear collection, this denim bag is crafted in the USA from reclaimed, post-consumer organic cotton canvas and denim. Big enough for a grocery, beach or weekend trip, it features reinforced straps to make carrying your gear easy and comfortable. The interior is lined with post-consumer polyester fabric and postindustrial recycled Supplex® nylon. And, because each piece of fabric is reclaimed, every bag is unique.
Using colored lenses crafted by the ZEISS Vision Science Lab in Tübingen, luxury eyewear maker Morgenthal Frederics’ ChromoClear glasses offer science-backed relief from everyday eye stressors. This particular hue, dubbed Focus, may improve concentration and reaction time with continuous wear, and boost productivity and the speed of reading in situational use cases. The frame, made from a tortoise patterned compostable acetate, is available in three shapes.
Made from pulped eucalyptus and beech and bioreactor-grown algae, Vollebak’s aptly named Plant and Algae T-shirt can be composted and all fabrics and inks are produced from sustainable plantations that are FSC- and PEFC-certified. The supple blend of lyocell from trees and linen from plants proves soft and comfortable, and the algae-made ink won’t run or bleed—or pollute waterways. The brand affirms, if composted, this garment will be worm food in 12 weeks.
