5 Cute Brands That Also Help The Environment

1. Happy Earth

This brand is one of my favorite. It's extremely affordable ($25 for tees) and donates half of its proceeds to various causes. Not only are no harmful dyes or animal-based products used, but the packaging it comes in is 100% recyclable. Part of their message is being "determined to stop climate change, deforestation, and ocean pollution." It's a great buy and their shirts and beanies are really comfy.

2. Ten Tree

Their message is in their name, they plant 10 trees for every purchase! So far they've planted over 25 million trees and the number goes up along with their purchases. Their purpose is to "revitalize our environment and inspire." They use coconut made buttons instead of plastic, hemp products, cork, organic cotton, recycled polyester, and other sustainable materials. Although they aren't the cheapest brand ($30-45 for tees), it's reasonably priced considering how many trees they plant for a single purchase and the quality of the product itself.

3. The Parks Apparel

The Parks Apparel works on protecting land conservations. They've currently protected over 17 million square yards of land for endangered wildlife in order to combat extinction. Their goal is to "to create a collective consciousness of outdoor appreciation and awareness." They encourage promotion, leadership, and involvement in their cause. Their tee-shirts range from $30-40 and give off an Indie Bo-Ho vibe.

4. Serengetee

Serengetee was founded in 2012 and uses fabrics from in Africa, Asia, and Central America in fair trade. They support "artisans, their families, and ancient fabric-making traditions" from around the world. They give back 10% of profits to communities around the world that are struggling. They take fabrics from artisans and sew them in Los Angeles to support products made in America while also helping those in need. Their tees go for around $35-40 and range from all sorts of different color options.

5. Sand Cloud

https://www.instagram.com/serengetee/

This brand donates 10% of all profits are donated to marine life. Given the word "sand" in the name, this brand is beachy with light colors for the blankets and towels. They support the Marine Conservation Institute, The Surfrider Foundation, The Pacific Marine Mammal Center, San Diego Coastkeeper, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, and Ocean Connectors. All of these ocean protecting organizations are non-profits and use Sand Cloud's donations to protect ocean wildlife.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

634

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
