Give Twice : Tommy Hilfiger - Zac & Zoe - Cheeky Monkey
Why give once when you can give twice with our latest gift finds that give back to worthy causes...
Cheeky Monkey has created a number of cute charm necklaces in the shapes of endangered and threatened animals with a portion of proceeds benefiting animal charities. The little Seal pendent, $250., for instance supports the efforts of The Humane Society of the United States to stop the Canadian seal hunt. Pieces are sold at Bloomingdales.
Tommy Hilfiger has teamed up with Dress for Success to produce a limited edition classic silk scarf and necktie, both $30, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the cause to helping women become economically independent. Find them in select stores and online. As seen in Elle.
Tommy Hilfiger has also created a limited edition series of tote bags with photographer Jeremy Blake to benefit Free Arts NYC. $120. As seen in Elle.
Zoe & Zac are coming to Payless shoe stores and they're bringing some green with them. Using tagua nuts, recycled rubber and other natural materials the Zoe & Zac collection also comes with the bonus of donating $1 from each pair sold to the Nature Conservancy's Plant A Billion Trees Campaign. All are $30 and under at Payless stores and online at Payless.com.
Forever 21 has teamed up with American Forests and Global Releaf to create a new Go Green Tote, $1.75, with each bag you buy (and give?) they will plant a tree.
From 04/21/09 through 04/22/09 Gilt Groupe will be donating a portion of the profits from certain designers such as Loomstate and Stella McCartney to the Audubon Society and Conservation International.
