Built on Kindness a New Online Eco-Friendly Marketplace Launches For #SocialGood

This year has sure been a doozy with challenges across not only our country, but around the world. Despite a year filled with a pandemic and the repercussions and reverberations of it, many people have stepped up to help others. Stories have caught waves all over the news and social media from food banks helping families survive to people banding together to save beloved local small businesses. Now is the time that we all become a little more intentional about how we can help others even if it is in small, but deliberate ways.

To help consumers buy with kindness and good in mind, a new online eco marketplace, KindHumans, recently launched by Justin and Suzi Wilkenfeld. Their goal: to celebrate the good in humanity by elevating community, commerce and world-changing causes. With staunchly vetted eco-friendly products that serve as perfect holiday gifts from an eco-friendly math kit for kids to planet-friendly stocking stuffers, KindHumans provides an easy way for you to purchase with purpose, one of the mainstays of our site. With some much going on in all of our lives, it’s nice when others have created easy ways to give and give back.

KindHumans, a certified B-corp, is based on a membership model in order for you to get the most out of their marketplace. You’ll receive 2% cash back, and can choose the social good organization you would like to support – for kids, the planet, or humanity. KindHumans gives 3% of your purchase to the cause you choose. As a member you will also receive their “Kindness. Pass It On” welcome pack including their signature hat.

Membership to KindHumans.com is $35 per year.

Jewelry That Gives Back to Oceans

I have been a bit obsessed lately with two Instagram accounts that I absolutely love: @paulnicklen and @Mitty. Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier respectively are prolific underwater photographers and founders of Seal Legacy, an organization committed to creating healthy and abundant oceans for us and the planet. Some of my favorite Instagram posts of theirs are:

It’s funny: As much as I love the oceans I don’t really visit them often. Sure, I fly over them often and at long stretches and I take photos of the ocean from a distance like the one above that I took in the Philippines, but I never get up close and personal to the ocean. I would like to change that one day. In the meantime I live vicariously through Nicklen and Mittermeier. Also, as I sat looking at their work I wondered how I can help the oceans in my own little way and you can, too. Here are jewelry companies that have beautiful bling while also giving back to oceans, ocean clean-ups, reefs, and ocean life.

Three Avocados Creates Clean Water and Education Projects Through Coffee Sales

For over five years Three Avocados has funded global water and education projects in Uganda and Nicaragua through the sale of their coffee and branded products like tumblers, T-shirts, and coffee mugs.

Three Avocados Coffee

I recently received two bags of Three Avocados arabica ground coffee  – one from Nicaragua and the other from Uganda. Both are quite good.  I am a big fan of very strong, dark roast coffee and Three Avocados definitely does not disappoint.

When I opened my box of samples, the smell of coffee hit me before I even saw the coffee bags. I loved that Three Avacados Coffee - Projectsimmediately. In my experience if I can smell ground coffee before I even open the bag I know it will likely be very good.
