But one thing you can hold on to is the fact that there are brands out there doing good for the world, and using your purchases to make it a better place. Check out some of our favorite fashion and beauty brands that are using their products for positive change.

I’ll never forget when I was in my first year of undergrad and all of a sudden everyone was wearing these super cute and comfy slip-ons. Since 2006, TOMS has expanded so far beyond those trademark slip-ons and has helped over 60 million children with a new pair of shoes. In addition to giving shoes, the company has also helped over 400,000 people restore their eyesight with new glasses, helped provide over 355,000 weeks of clean water in six countries, and safe birth services for over 25,000 mothers.

Another artisan-driven company, FEED does exactly what its name says—feed those in need. Each product it makes is stamped with a number on it, representing how many school meals were provided from that purchase. Since launching, the company has supplied over 100 million meals to schools around the world and here in America.

You’ll never guess how much of its proceeds this brand donates…90 percent! This sustainable contemporary womenswear company is based out of London and is changing the way charitable brands give back. It supports a variety of causes and also invites buyers to vote for which cause they want to support by providing a unique code on the garment they purchased.

By now, you’ve definitely heard of the revolutionary “period panties” that have taken over social media. But not only are you solving one of women’s greatest monthly annoyances, but you’re helping women around the world. Through grassroots activism, Thinx is fighting for better access to puberty education, and reliable, safe access to menstrual hygiene products for those in need.

Sisters Body is a small-batch bath and body line created by (you guessed it) three sisters. Not only are the products non-toxic (thanks to help from their biochemist and physician father), but the company also donates 40 percent of the profits to organizations that support women’s health.
