Hipcycle

http://hipcycle.com

Our goal here at Hipcycle is to offer upcycled products that are as attractive, durable, and otherwise as desirable as traditional equivalent products (if not more so). We also strive to offer products that are priced about the same as regular high-quality products. We don’t feel that just because something is a “green” product that is means you have to make a choice between helping the environment and getting what you want.

Krochet Kids intl.

http://www.krochetkids.org

Krochet Kids intl. has continued to grow and evolve in ways we never imagined since we earned our non-profit status in January 2008.  Today, over 150 people in Uganda and Peru are working, receiving education, and being mentored toward a brighter future.  The products created abroad have been well received here at home and the collaboration of our staff and beneficiaries around the globe has created a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment. The beneficiaries of our program are all women. This is due to their unique role as mothers and heads of households. By giving this group of ladies a stable income they are able to provide for many others beyond themselves.

Twins For Peace

http://www.twinsforpeace.com

Initially, we developed a one for one model: for each pair of TWINS sold, we donated a pair of shoes to a child in need. We produced the donated pair of children’s shoes in the Donation Project country to help the local economy and avoid displacing workers. 

In partnership with SOS ...Enfant, we now donate medical supplies, school tuition, books and supplies to children living in impoverished countries. 
Each time a sneaker is purchased another pair is donated to a child in need.
