Our conscious minds are becoming more aware of the effects our actions, and purchases, have on the wider world. Brands are becoming increasingly informed of this problem too, and are actively looking for sustainable solutions. Here at The Hut, we have picked out our favourite guilt-free, eco friendly brands that embrace sustainability through their products, brand ethics and business practices. Being able to buy quality products knowing your purchase is not harming the environment, but helping it, is a much happier and guilt-free thought.

TOMS

Giving back to disadvantaged communities is not only embedded within TOMS daily operations, but is the core reason for the set up of the brand. Founder Blake Mycoskie witnessed first hand the terrible hardship experienced by many children when travelling in Argentina. Wanting to help, he set up TOMS, a shoe company that gave back one pair of shoes, to a disadvantaged child, with every purchase made; they called it ‘One for One’.

This initiative has spread throughout the growing brand, including eyewear. With every pair of eyewear purchased, TOMS will fund and aid the sight of a child in need of glasses, medical treatment and even surgery.
