2015 Fan Favorite Conscious Companies You Need To Know Now

These days it feels like we move through holidays faster than we can swipe left on Tender.  Can you believe Christmas is about to pass and the 2016 is almost here? I feel like just yesterday, it was Black Friday.

I definitely won’t miss being bombarded with holiday ads and deals from every company and their mother. Annoying brand promo ads aside, I really like the holidays.. and not just for the gifts! Okay, actually it kinda is. I am a huge fan of gift giving. 3 Thirty gives back all year to charity by donating 30% of the profit from the apparel we sell. But during the holiday season in November and December we get to see a boost in giving from all ends of the world… and we love it. While Christmas morning is right around the corner, I want to inspire you all to keep the true spirit of giving in mind while you shop and as we move forward into 2016. To help you do that, look to conscious brands who have got the “spirit of giving” down.

What I mean by “conscious brands” is a company’s who sells products or services that also support a charitable cause or gives back to their community OR the company products are ethically made, eco-friendly  and/or cruelty free … Talk about good vibes and good karma!

Conscious companies are starting to pop-up everywhere, and gain more exposure (which is difficult with so many big name brands dominating the scene). There is definitely a movement going on – across the world- where people really give a shit about their environment and the people in it and want to purchase stuff from companies who give a shit too.

3 Thirty is about spreading good vibes and living a rad, conscious life so we asked our followers to nominate their favorite conscious brands and here is what they came up with:
