From Afghan Heritage Jewelry to Flat-Top Shades

 - Sep 22, 2011
When it comes to fashion and design, a small touch goes a long way -- and these socially aware accessories prove that you can say yes to the best even while staying true to your ethics. Whatever they may be.

From afghan heritage jewelry to flat-stop shades and peace pillows, this collection of socially aware accessories will have you rockin' out for a good cause. Some of theses social businesses, like Elvis & Kresse, emphaize side of environmental causes, while others, like Falling Whistles and One Mango Tree, focus on people through fair trade and community involvement.

Some might argue that there might come a day when all brands and companies -- no matter how big or small -- will have to adhere to the triple bottom line. Of course, our so-called global village is nowhere near that now, but these socially aware accessories are a start to creating more and more products with purpose.
