‘The whole story begins with you‘ is just one of the many mission statements that the following retailers promote when shopping at their stores! These retailers make it easy for their customers to rest assured that they’ve made the right choice through their social impact initiatives tied to each purchase. Let’s begin!
To begin with, we have the Leesa mattress which was created with the ideology of being deeply rooted in giving a deeper rest for every body. Leesa identifies a bed as more than just a place to sleep; it’s a place for relaxation and rest. It’s where everyone’s “always-on world” can finally turn off.
“We’re proud of our financial success but, how we’d rather measure our success is by our impact on the world.”
For every ten mattresses that they sell, they donate one to those in need; with every mattress sold, they plant one tree, and they always give time and resources to local and national organizations!
Leesa also makes it easy for you to try out their mattress before your purchase by having their line available at West Elm, Pottery Barn, and two art galleries that have turned into Leesa Dream galleries!
Next, we have Toms which all began in 2006 when the founder Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and saw that they didn’t have adequate shoes to protect their feet.
And what began as a simple idea has evolved into a powerful business model helping address need, and also advance health, education, and economic opportunity for children and their communities around the world!
At Patagonia, they believe the simple act of sharing good food makes communities stronger!
Moreover, in 2016, Patagonia donated 100% of sales to grassroots organizations working to create positive change for the planet in their own backyards!
Since their inception, Warby Parker has distributed over 4 million pairs of glasses through their Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program!
The founders of Warby Parker know that there are over 2.5 billion people around the world who need glasses but don’t have access to them.
