This online retailer specializes in – you guessed it! – yellow clothing, shoes, and accessories. The color scheme is not strictly for visual appeal, however; 10% of all sales are donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation who aim to find a cure for the hereditary disorder. With plenty of affordable and in-style items that are perfect to complete that summertime look, what’s not to love?!

We’ve all seen their trendy footwear at various retailers such as Urban Outfitters and Bloomingdales as well as all over Instagram. While you may be familiar with their promise that with every purchase of a pair of shoes, the brand will donate a second pair to a child in need. But, Toms does not stop giving there- eye care, safe birthing, providing water and bullying prevention are also donated through sales of their other products which include sunglasses and apparel.

Inspired by a 2010 trip to Costa Rica, two friends from SoCal combined forces with a pair of local bracelet makers they had met in the country to form Pura Vida. Today, their colorful and handcrafted items, which range from jewelry to beach blankets, provide jobs to artisans alongside partnering with over 174 charities worldwide. Currently, they are quoted to have raised close to 2 million dollars total towards these causes.
