Brands like Tom's and Warby Parker have been following a "Do Good" approach for years now. With every purchase of a Tom's shoe or a Warby Parker pair of glasses, the companies distribute a pair to those in need in coutnries such as Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and India. Efforts such as these demonstrated an increase in productivity for students as well as a better clinical health status for many children since the use of shoes would protect them from minor illnesses. Recently, brands in the health and wellness space have been moving in the same direction. Here are a few that are making an impact:
S'well - S'well bottles are composed of non-leaching and non-toxic stainless steel allowing your beverages/liquids to be kept cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. Not only does the purchase of one S'well bottle help reduce the use of plastic bottles each year, but the brand also donates a portion from the proceeds of each and every bottle towards Water Aid. Also, for every limited edition S'well bottle sold, 10% goes towards brining nutrition, counseling, support and women's empowerment to those in need through the Keep A Child Alive organization.
Studio 360 NYC - Studio 360 is a relatively new boutique studio in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Manhattan, New York. It is the only studio in Manhattan dedicated exclusively to Cycling and Yoga not to mention one of the only studios that donates one dollar per student per class to a different monthly charity. Each month the charity changes! Who wouldn't want to sweat for a great cause?
Steve's PaleoGoods - Steve's PaleoGoods started off as a simple "PaleoKit" created from his very own kitchen! It's a combination of jerky, nuts, and berries with hopes that it would provide fuel to the kids he worked with as an healthier alternative to the school lunches in order to improve their nutrition. Soon enough, the kits become popular and Steve's Club became a national program. 15% of proceeds from sales of Steve’s PaleoGoods go to Steve's Club National Program – our 501c3 non-profit that brings fitness, nutrition guidance and mentorship to at-risk youth.
Suja - All of Suja’s juices are certified Organic, Non-GMO & Kosher and are processed using cold pressure (also known as High Pressure Processing or HPP) to kill harmful bacteria while preserving nutrition and taste. It is now one of the fastest growing cold-pressed beverage companies. When a Suja Elements bottle is purchased from our exclusive partner Whole Foods Market, 20 cents is donated to the specific cause associated with that flavor. This partnership hopes to bring greater awareness and assistance to the missions of important causes like New Eyes, Teens Turning Green and Citizens for GMO Labeling.
The partnership with charitable organizations or sales contributions towards different organizations demonstrates their efforts to achieve a healthier life for many worldwide.
