Don’t you just love brands that look good….and DO good?
That pretty much describes Half United.
In 2009, they started by donating HALF of all profits, taking no pay for four years and keeping expenses to a minimum by meeting in homes and coffee shops rather than renting an office space. When the brand realised profits dwindle as business grows, they decided to restructure by donating seven meals to children in need for every product sold.
This idea turned out to be a really good one. Within five years, their customer’s purchases made it possible to give over one million meals to partnering organizations in Cambodia, Liberia, Fiji, USA, and Nepal.
They did this in the most creative ways: providing school lunch meals, creating school gardens, giving holiday meals, starting fish farms, and by purchasing bee hives that provided honey and pollinated school crops. Fighting hunger will always be at the core of everything they do.
To support their mission, they sell ethically made bags, jewelry, apparel, home goods and more.
