42 One-for-One Gifts

From Cause-Conscious Clothing to Festive Charity Shoes

— December 10, 2011 — Social Good
This Social Business top list of one-for-one gifts suggests that this holiday season you can get more bang for your buck -- socially and environmentally, that is.

Some companies featured here have been covered multiple times on both Trend Hunter and Social Business like TOMS, Out of Print and United by Blue. United by Blue, which recently released their collegiate winter collection, is a social business tackling waste and access to clean water through their cause-concious clothing. This year alone United by Blue removed over 82,000 pounds of trash at over 60 cleanups with the help of over 1,000 volunteers.

This top list of one-for-one gifts spans everything from one-for-one boating tees, festive charity shoes, English lit t-shirts, arty one-for-one condoms to pre-natal vitamins and prom-specific sneakers.

Conspicuous consumption has taken a turn toward the social in which a purchase can actually have meaning and an impact for other people in the world whether it's through tackling health, environment, education or poverty issues.
