Spotlight | Brands That Give Back

As time goes on - brands and companies are becoming more socially responsible and giving back. We, as the consumer are now able to feel good about our purchases and not compromise on the quality of the piece that we are getting. There are quite a few brands that have successfully done this, one being Tom's "One for One Movement."

I was recently contacted by two brands that are hoping to spread the word on their collections and their missions!! I, for one, am always up for learning about new brands, so without further adieu...
Angela & Roi are a husband and wife duo that create a perfectly constructed handbag to match the individuality of a women and her many needs. They have created a "Donate by Color" campaign in which they have partnered with 11 non-profit organizations that get a portion of the purchase price. If you haven't figured it out yet - I have a slight obsession with purses and if by purchasing one I am also helping someone - well then, it's most certainly a win-win! 

Their minimal design with the classic flair has been showcased in Refinery29, Ladies Home Journal and Boston Globe- Fashion Edition. As the new kids on the block, I'm sure they are destined for great things...I mean we've all heard of Stella McCartney and her amazing handbag line - no leather - no problem!! 


Warby Parker is quickly gaining in on the market share of luxury eye and sunglass producers. Their company foundation is strong and pretty simple - for every pair of glasses sold - they donate a pair to someone in need through their non-profit sponsors! 
At the start of 2014 they launched their new Spring line...if you're like me then you don't wear prescription glasses - but secretly always want to because you like the look - well not to worry because you can get the frames without the prescription! They also offer a home try on - where you test out 5 frames for 5 days and it's 100% free - well unless you like one and then you buy that frame!! 

Have you heard of either of these brands before? When you shop - do you think about the company's mission at all? 
Disclosure: I was not gifted any products through this review. These are my own opinions.

P.S. Have you entered the giveaway yet?! 



Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! 

xoxo,
Biana
