Top 45 Social Good Trends in February

From Hunger-Fighting Apps to Low-Cost Lighting Solutions

— February 22, 2015 — Social Good
These February 2015 social good trends range from hunger-fighting apps to low-cost lighting solutions that provide electricity to kids living in third world countries. Marrying style with social responsibility, fashions and home accessories are becoming more charitable as designers join forces with recognized organizations.

From charitable shoelace lamps to fund-raising temporary tattoos, consumers are becoming more socially responsible while making a purchase that is both authentic and hand-crafted. In addition to independent designers and brands, more established brands like KFC and Pizza Hut are also taking part in this marketing shift and are contributing to world hunger relief efforts.

In addition to charitable home accessories, fashion and food campaigns, these February 2015 social good trends also include socially conscious apps that help connected individuals do their part for others in need.
