I don’t know about you, but I haven’t left my house much since mid-March. The only shopping I’ve really done is for groceries which has given me plenty of time to peruse the internet for some new places to check out. On the off chance you’re like me and have been spending way too much time online, I figured I’d share!
If you’re looking for a handmade gift or something to spoil yourself, check out Ten Thousand Villages.
They source handcrafted products from around the world like these lucky pigs (made in Chile) to support the local communities.
From the start, TOMS has always been about giving back. They started off by donating a pair of shoes for every pair purchased.
I’ve always been a shoe gal and they have some pretty fun designs. I haven’t bought a pair (yet) but I’m eyeing the cute floral ones for summer, and I’ve heard they rank pretty high for comfort, too!
If you’re looking for books, you can pick up some new reads or a few of your faves while supporting a bookstore that gives back, Better World Books. For every book purchased through their site they’ll donate one to someone in need. Plus, they also offer grants to fund literacy and educational nonprofits.
Have you found any new places to shop that give back to the causes or communities they serve? Let me know in the comments!
