When you buy from a company, you are essentially investing in their cause. For many companies, this is expanding their corporation and benefiting their CEOs. But some businesses are different. New organizations are springing up all over the place, pledging to donate profits to planting trees, saving the oceans, or giving to any other cause you can think of. The next time you are looking to buy something, research your options. What causes do you care about? How can you help? Consider charitable companies like these so that your purchases can have positive benefits:

  • Tentree-

Tentree plants ten trees in a deforested area or third world country for every product sold. So far, they have planted 12,433,810 trees. You can find their products in outdoor stores across the country, in Lexington, and online. Part of their mission is to “Inspire our generation to adopt a socially and environmentally responsible lifestyle.,”
