TOMS SHOES: Toms is a leader when it comes to do-gooding and they’ve inspired other companies to follow suit. Whenever you purchase a pair of Toms, they donate a pair to a child in need. The brand has expanded to eyewear and is now providing treatment to the visually impaired with each pair of glasses sold. BEAUTY PRODUCTS: Tons of beauty brands are giving back. Lise Watier‘s Sparkle of Hope Lip Gloss is a gorgeous translucent shimmer that goes over any lip color to add a beautiful shimmer. Philosophy and LUSH are also doing their job: For example, 100% of proceeds from Lush’s Charity Pot Hand & Body Lotion are donated to grassroots charities.
