Carry Courage create handmade eco-conscious bags to help make a positive impact on the planet. They care about Earth and want to make it a better place for the next generations. They do this by using cork fabric because it is the only tree that benefits from the removal of its bark. By harvesting the cork , the tree actually absorbs more toxins and reduces greenhouse gases. So when you purchase a bag from them you are not only looking good, but you are also helping the planet. Seems like a win-win scenario!
Goodbeads is a woman owned jewelry company that was created when the founder wanted to combine her love of jewelry with her degree in wildlife and fisheries biology. She wanted to create pieces that you can look good wearing but also feel good about supporting. For every piece that you order, $5 is donated to nonprofits that are studying and find ways to preserve our planet. They take it one step further and ship using recycled packages that are also compostable too.
