1. Andina Belt ($62) by Pistil
Why we like it: The colorful embroidery will instantly elevate any ensemble from simple to stand-out. Even better, this belt was handwoven by Peruvian artisans, so not only is it totally unique, but the money will help support the community of the artisan who made it.
2. Teacher Organic Cotton Tank ($58) by Edun
Why we like it: This fun tank top is a great way to give any outfit a playful twist, whether you dress it up or down. Interestingly, the graphic was drawn by a Ugandan child who was asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
3. Jaclyn Mini Dress ($209) by Gypsy 05
Why we like it: This gorgeous dress is ripe and ready for summer, thanks to the silky silhouette and pretty print, which comes in three different color options. More importantly, the silk has been dyed using eco-friendly materials, so you will feel great inside and out!
4. Neck Plate ($162) by Mettle
Why we like it: A statement necklace certainly lives up to its name and this one is no different. We love how this necklace draws the eye, but we particularly love that it was made in Cambodia as part of a non-profit skills training project.
5. Printed Frida Tote ($25) by Mexican Bazaar
Why we like it: Apart from the fact that this cool tote bag is totally eye-catching and comes in four amazing colors—orange, pink, beige, and aqua—it was also made by Mexican artisans and buying it will help support the family of the artisan.
6. Earth Day Bangles ($50) by Rosena Sammi
Why we like it: Now that music festival season has officially kicked off, a pile of gorgeous bangles on your wrist will never go amiss. Plus, 30% of the proceeds from the sales of these bracelets will be donated to the Conservation Fund.
7. Woven Espadrilles ($76) by Soludos
Why we like it: These shoes are perfect for summer as they are so versatile—you can wear them on vacation, while shopping, just about anywhere. Plus, they are made from eco-friendly materials and come in an array of colors and prints. Why can say no?
