Double-whammy Earth Day shopping!
These two companies are not only donating money and resources to Earth-friendly causes, BUT their entire collections are green (and I don’t mean the color).
Matt & Nat–our favorite eco-friendly and vegan (meaning that don’t use any animal byproducts in the making of their bags) company is donating $21 from every purchase of their limited edition Ikat bags to benefit Charity:Water (which is a non-profit organization that brings clean and sade drinking water to people in developing countries).
And why $21 you ask? It parallels with Matt & Nat’s longtime practice of using an average of 21 recycled water bottles to create each socially responsible peice in the line.
So, just to break it down: for every 1 bag sold, 1 person will be provided with drinking water. Simply amazing!
And you’ll need a fabulous pair of (eco-friendly) shoes to go with that bag, right?
Well, Naya shoes has teamed up with Nordstrom to celebrate Earth Day by planting 5,000 trees in support of Plant-It 2020, a US non-profit organization founded by John Denver. The companies will plant a tree for every pair of Naya shoes purchased at Nordstrom from April 15, 2011 – May 3, 2011.
