Fashion is one of the most destructive industries in the world. The manufacture of fabric-based fashion items uses so much water when some parts of the world really need water. The water crisis was an important discussion during the World Economic Forum this year. According to the forum, 25% of the world’s population is on the brink of facing a water crisis. Fashion is one of the most destructive industries in the world. The manufacture of fabric-based fashion items uses so much water when some parts of the world really need water. The water crisis was an important discussion during the World Economic Forum this year. According to the forum, 25% of the world’s population is on the brink of facing a water crisis. On another aspect of fashion, the use of leather has been widely criticized among environmentalists. Leather comes from the skin of cattle and other similar animals. However, high-end fashion houses have also taken to using the skin of exotic animals of their luxurious collection. This prompts the rise of poaching as people scramble for ways to earn money. The tanning process employed in the manufacture of leather is also not an eco-friendly practice because of the use of chemicals that add to the world’s carbon footprint. However, there are some companies that try to make good out of a bad situation. Here are three companies that use their platform to spread good news and support great visions. GreaterGood The company encourages you to “shop to give.” GreaterGood started in 1999 with the intention of earning money in order to be able to help different charitable organizations. The company’s goals range from providing meals to the less-fortunate people to bringing formula to malnourished children and supporting breast cancer research. It supports over 130 charities. The brand sells clothing, toys, jewelry, and other accessories. One of its bestsellers is the Pawsitively Beautiful Handbag. If the name of the bag isn’t a giveaway yet, buying this gorgeous item means helping animals too. Buying the bag will be able to help feed over 200 shelter animals. The design also features a lace-cut paw print to add to its cuteness. Manakin Dance This brand is also about animal protection, among others. Manakin Dance is concerned about the environment, particularly on specific issues of climate change, animal trafficking, and habitat destruction. The company donates 10% of its profit to the World Wildlife Fund in the hopes of battling these environmental problems. The collection of bags from the brand is quite simple. It is just a canvas tote with an environment-friendly message. There are two types of totes and three designs. One design carries the brand’s signature animal, the blue manakin doing the manakin dance. Another design carries the statement: I can make a difference. Another bag carries the message “Go green” encircled with leaves. You can use these bags for the beach or for groceries. FEED The name itself will tell you that the company was created to do good rather than to create fashion. It just so happened that the products manufactured from the brand are also quite beautiful. The main goal of the brand—if it is not already obvious—is to feed the children around the world. The company has already provided more than 111 million meals to the children in need around the world. But let’s talk about FEED products. One of its most-loved designs is the Harriet Tote, which is a soft leather bag that is made of genuine semi-vegetable tanned leather. Buying this product means you have also helped feed 100 children. The Eleanor Crossbody Bag will feed 75 children. It is also made with semi-vegetable tanned leather. Its collection of duffels provides between 50 and 75 meals. While FEED bags are the most popular products from the brand, the company also manufactures other items like jewelry and accessories, T-shirts, scarves, and love potion candles. It also has a collection of artisanal products.
