We support small businesses and craftspeople who create each of their products with care. Handmade products are generally produced on a small scale, without the use of large energy consuming factories and production facilities. Buying handmade helps support art, communities, and people’s livelihoods.


This company donates a portion of their time or profits to charitable efforts in their community or abroad.

Upcycled Bamboo

Bamboo is a fast growing, renewable, and durable resource. Scraps can be salvaged from the production of bamboo items like furniture, and are used to create new products. Using upcycled bamboo prevents waste from entering the landfill, and reduces the amount of energy and resources used to create new products.

Plant Based Resin

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

    Lightweight and beautiful

    These are really wonderful and I’m hoping they hold up well. The company also helps people in need, so be sure to read about how they are giving back. This is the most I’ve ever spent on sunglasses but the $10 cheap ones just aren’t holding up like I’d like them to, even though I take care of them.
