We’re back with the fourth installment of Darling High Fives! In case you’ve missed our previous rounds, High Fives are our way of shouting out the many, many awesome brands we come across as a, “Hi. We see you. We think you’re pretty great and we want everyone to know about you, too!”
Below are five brands that aim to funnel different aspects of life — including weddings, motherhood, even that time of the month — into world-changing goodness. We could all use more of that, yeah? Read on and don’t forget, if you’d like to see a company listed here, then get it on our radar by adding to the comment section or tagging #DarlingHighFives on social!
The Good Beginning Wedding Registry
We can’t help but say “I do” if someone were to ask if we love what this wedding registry stands for. Founded by Los Angeles-based wedding planner Beth Helmstetter after she traveled to Haiti with her church, The Good Beginning has captured the attention of CNBC, Forbes and The New York Times.
And it’s no surprise, seeing as how the company makes it easy for couples to curate wedding registries while choosing over 300 charities that can benefit from it in the process. What better way to give back than in the name of love?
Misha & Puff
What’s better than a brand that makes safe clothing for your loved ones in order to provide a living for their loved ones? Think pastel popcorn sweaters, beach jackets and bonnets made with 100% Peruvian cotton and are hand-dyed with sustainable dyes. Each garment from Misha & Puff is made with the utmost care by female knitters in Peru, who are ether working from home or at a knitting center that supplies meals and daycare. With every stitch and every purchase motherhood is progressed, for both the customer and creator.
Wild + Free
Wild + Free is bringing childlike joy and bliss to the homeschooling community. While educating their children, this growing community of moms provides resources to make it easy to teach the curriculum of life, encouraging kids to learn from their surroundings in nature, from human connection and in noticing the little things.
This online shop is all about providing mothers with access to sustainable products that are healthy for their little ones and the earth they are growing up in. Consider this your one stop, ethical shop for toys, clothes and food accessories. Now that is something we don’t mind one “bitte!”
Periods are a fact of life, but for women and girls without healthy menstrual necessities, a period can also mean a barrier to success. In pursuit of “empowering the period,” WomenStrong International educates women in countries like Ghana, Haiti, India, Kenya and parts of the United States on period and birth health, menstrual pads and gaining access to “basic facilities” like school toilets.
