Positively Powerful Brands We Love

By Maria Soubbotina

At Olive Creative Strategies, we focus our efforts on building each other up and creating a positive environment. So it’s no surprise that we like to highlight brands that are making an impact in the world. That’s why we rounded up a list of positively powerful brands that we’re loving:

As a global maker-to-maker movement, Ten Thousand Villages connects artisans in developing countries around the world with conscious shoppers in the U.S. Every product generates sustainable income—and impact—for 20,000 makers in 30 countries who earn a fair, living wage in safe working conditions. Shoppers can browse jewelry, home décor, holiday gifts, kitchen and dining and so much more. Talk about making a global impact!

Skincare is just as important as your diet, which is why Shop Good is committed to making your skin and beauty routine a priority. Shop Good has everything from serums and exfoliators to lipsticks and eyeshadow, made with safe and clean ingredients. You can count on Shop Good’s health coaches, holistic estheticians and product experts to vet products that will heal your skin and body.

Family-owned and founded by two mothers, Bear Necessities Co. is a CBD naturals company that offers safe CBD lotions, tinctures and more for the whole family—even the little ones! CBD is known to help with anxiety, stress, chronic inflammation, nausea, epileptic seizures and more. Bear Necessities Co.’s CBD is 100 percent THC-free, third party lab tested, organic, vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free—so you never have to worry about what you’re putting in your body.

Made with women in mind, Christy Dawn makes timeless and versatile pieces from upcycled fabric. In order to reduce clothing and textile waste, they re-purpose gently used fabric and deadstock to create new garments. While in some cases it can take several hundreds of gallons of water to create a simple white T-shirt, upcycling requires nearly no water! So you can look good and feel good knowing your clothing is eco-friendly.
