Buy one give one e-tailers we love
Posted on 18 December 2017
The One for One phenomenon has gained some serious traction in the fashion industry in the last 5 years. And even though the model has its skeptics, we think that a brand that supports people in need with shoes, spectacles or baby blankets is one to support.
Here’s four of our favourite buy-one-give-one retailers, from boutiques to mega brands.
1/ TOMS is the classic - really this company could probably lay claim to the model. They don’t just give shoes to people in need, they give sight, water, safe birth and bullying prevention services to people around the world, with every purchase made. Pretty damn cool if you ask us.
2/ One World Play Project - they make indestructible soccer balls for kids around the world, and their mission is to provide play to kids who are in dire situations like refugee camps and impoverished conditions. “For every ball you buy, we donate a second ball to organizations working with youth in disadvantaged communities worldwide. With your help, we’re bringing the transformative power of play to millions of children who need it most.” How good is that?!
3/ Warby Parker - the coolest online store for eyewear, made cooler by its buy one give one model, where it partners with ophthalmologists and teachers in developing countries to provide glasses to people in need. They’ve distributed over 3 million pairs of glasses through the programme to date. Now if only they did worldwide shipping!
4/ Baby Teresa - This boutique baby gear store donates a baby grow to families in need, for every baby grow you purchase. Bonus is, their designs are gorgeous!
