the products, the partners, the impact
warm weather is here to stay, and we're getting skin and psyche ready for summer's glowing debut!
INSPIRE Body Butter ::: GLOW for a cause
Imagine coming home from a long day out in the sun, you've just taken a nice shower... and your skin is feeling like it needs some hydration to get re-balanced. Massaging a little of this luxurious body butter (scented with florals and citrus) is the perfect remedy as you relax and unwind after a fun day full of sunshine.
IMPACT: 5% of profits from all orders go to non-profits (you choose at checkout). We designated The Gathering Place, a drop-in refuge in Denver, CO for those experiencing poverty and homelessness.
Skin care tip: Dab a little body butter on areas that feel the most dry. With richly moisturizing ingredients of coconut and jojoba, a little bit of this body butter goes a long way!
Table Runner ::: Della
Della's aesthetic is chic and simple prints with gorgeous colors. The table runner we selected for you has a beautiful pattern of teal and white vines – a perfect splash of color to add to your home or spruce up a picnic table at the park!
IMPACT: Della's heart is completely devoted to serving the people of Hohoe, Ghana. Beyond providing jobs and compensation, Della also provides resources to the community in education, money management training, and literacy classes.
Stylist tip: This table runner is perfect on tables that seat 4-6 max. Looks most amazing on darker neutral surfaces. Don't forget to add a vase full of fresh flowers in the middle!
Etched Notch Ring ::: Tribe Alive
A touch of gold to complement your outfit to the beach, a summer wedding, or a simple BBQ party is all you need to add a little dazzle to your glowing look. Handmade in Honduras, this adjustable ring is the perfect complement to any outfit for all your summer festivities!
IMPACT: Blending design, fashion, and social responsibility is the passion of Tribe Alive. The Tribe Alive team is focused on alleviating poverty in developing countries by equipping artisans with the training and tools to apply to their work and sustain independently.
Stylist tip: Try pairing this ring with other pieces in your look that have cool summer colors like teal and fuchsia.
Green Tea Face Mist ::: Ashley Asti
Summery sunshine is a beautiful thing! But if you feel you may have received just a smidge too much and need a skin refreshment, this face mist is a superb remedy to sooth and nourish skin that has soaked up lots of sun.
IMPACT: In addition to creating products that are good for you and made with pure ingredients, Ashley Asti is also about doing good. Ashley Asti supports Exhale to Inhale, an organization in New York City that provides trauma-informed yoga for survivors of abuse.
Skin care tip: Keep this refreshing, hydrating mist on hand for especially extra hot days and spritz as needed. It also works great as a facial toner or post-shave soothe.
Chocolate-Coated Coconut SquareBar ::: Square Organics
We love chocolate over here. And when it's combined with something healthy, that's just the icing on the cake! A protein bar that's basically a square of delicious, moist coconut coated in chocolate... who can say no to that? Bonus: it's dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and vegan.
IMPACT: Square Organics partners with another organization we adore, Not For Sale, and contributes quarterly to their work to end trafficking.
Tip from Esther: As much as you may be tempted to go beyond it, try to just eat one at a time.
