One of our more recent additions to the shop, Beaumont Organic creates gorgeous women's clothing made of natural materials in the UK and Portugal. The Beaumont Organic Foundation has pledged to donate 1% of Beaumont Organic’s annual profits to helping the people and children on the island of Taveuni, in order to help make their lives a little better, day-to-day.

Only 2% of fashion workers make a wage that meets their basic needs, but if brands absorbed the cost of bringing workers to a living wage, it would likely only cost between 1-3% of the cost of the garment. When you put it that way, it doesn’t feel so insurmountable, and they believe that a radical shift can happen in the fashion industry if consumer demand pushes for it.

EllieFunDay created Handcrafted for Life, a non-profit organization that gives back to the training and development of marginalized communities to empower them with a fair-wage and dignified employment. A fair wage provides for both the artisans and their family; it also is an expression of respect for each woman as a global citizen. Additionally, their partners provide a safe haven for many who have suffered some form of domestic abuse, human trafficking or societal rejection. On-site clinics at the sewing units provide easy access to appropriate healthcare. Ongoing education in literacy, financial management and skills-training help the women become more self-sustaining.

Additionally, Favor donates to Scrap, a Portland-based arts charity that inspires creative reuse of materials. Tools and excess jewelry materials are donated so that they can offer educational programs and affordable art materials to the community.
Favor also offers charity matching for their employees every year and works to create a culture of giving.
