Inspired by the good work that Shop with Meaning is doing, we’ve decided to feature some brands that are doing their part to change the world in a more sustainable way:

  • Warby Parker – Disrupting eyewear and spreading awareness.
  • Sseko Designs – Breaking the cycle of poverty for women.
  • Elegantees – Restoring women rescued from sex trafficking.
  • Oliberté – Empowering locals to make their own living.
  • 31 Bits – Using fashion and design to empower people to rise above poverty.
  • A Better Chicago – Funding the best social enterprises in the city.”
