Ethical Holiday Shopping: One Purchase Can Help Change The World

As U2's Bono beautifully sings, "One life, but we're not the same. We get to carry each other." Thank goodness do-good companies are making it easier than ever for us to help save the world from water crises, hunger, poverty, and unemployment via ethical purchases: lovely wines, candles, bags, and more! Fact: If every Fortune 500 company gave just 1% of its revenue to charity, we could provide clean water to every person on earth and end homelessness in the U.S. In the meantime, you can be heroic by purchasing a case of ONEHOPE wine to provide one person with water for life; or by buying a limited-edition Karen Walker pouch to support one woman in Kenya who needs work. Click through for six of our favorite ethical picks perfect for the holidays. Get one for a loved one, and one for you too!
