Loomstate for Target is offering designer styles for clearance prices. 100% organic fiber, “beautifully designed, affordable and naturally alluring clothing” that is environmentally friendly and from organic and sustainable products.

Brazilets. You make a wish on one of these brightly-colored fabric bracelets and wear it until it falls off.  AND….when you buy one of these, a portion of the proceeds is donated to PlantABillion.com, a nature conservancy project with an impressive goal: to plant one billion new trees in the Brazilian rainforest. (They even have a blog!)

Tom’s Shoes. For every pair of comfy-chic shoes you purchase, Tom’s donates one pair to a child in need. Even enter to win a Shoe Drop Tour in Argentina and experience firsthand the act of giving.
