5. Shelly Cove Shirts
Shelly Cove sells clothing and uses the proceeds to save the 6 out of 7 turtle species in the world that are endangered. In addition with every order, you can track a turtle that has been rescued and receive updates about its condition and release. How cool is it to know you helped save that turtle leading up to its release? Find out more here.
6. WeWood Wooded Watches
WeWood creates all-natural, eco-friendly wooden watches that give back to the environment, rather than just taking. For every watch purchased, WeWood plants a tree to help prevent deforestation. In other words, they plant more trees than they cut down in an effort to better the environment. WeWood has planted over 600,000 trees since it first started in 2010. My personal favorite watch is this one, because of the sleek look to the clock face. Learn more here.

9. Love Your Melon
Love Your Melon sells knitted hats made from 100% cotton. The company has a goal of giving a hat to every child diagnosed with cancer in America. In addition, 50% of all net profits are donated to Love Your Melon’s partnered non-profit organizations. Consequently, Love Your Melon has donated roughly 7 million dollars to pediatric cancer research centers and over 190 thousand hats to children battling cancer. This is my personal favorite beanie because I think the little pom pom on top is super cute.
