The Bitty Crossbody Bag from Tribe Alive is probably the cutest bag you’ll own. Made to fit your essentials, the bag is handmade in India featuring waterproof suede and an adjustable shoulder strap. It’s also available in black and in this beautiful sage suede color that makes it perfect for warmer weather.

Tribe Alive was founded by Carly Burson. Since then she has been committed to using her brand as a way to help those in developing countries get out of poverty. She built relationships with female artisans in Guatemala, India, Haiti, and Honduras to provide you with high quality goods. In exchange, the artisans gain a fair wage and a safe working environment. 

We’re delightfully Smitten!

Stella ArtoisLimited Edition Chalices are changing lives one drink at a time. Over 800 million people in developing countries have no access to clean water. Stella Artois and Water.org are working to change that. Each chalice that’s purchase provides five years of safe, clean water to a person in a developing country.

Stella Artois has worked with Water.org since 2015. Thanks to their partnership, approximately 1.7 million people have been given access to clean drinking water. Their #POURITFORWARD campaign allows each purchase to change families’ lives in developing countries.

Nothing makes your home look so put together like a candle. OneGrid’s candles will compliment your space while giving back at the same time. All the candles are hand poured, are made in the U.S. and are available in six different scents. For every candle that is purchased, OneGrid will donate a solar lamp to a person who doesn’t have access to electricity. 

Kerosene lamps are known to be toxic to lung health. Which is why OneGrid partners with SolarAid, a nonprofit charity that helps provide solar lamps to those with no access to electricity.

How Smitten are we?!

Uma’s Pure Energy Oil might just put an end to my daily Starbuck’s runs. Made in India, the oil contains ingredients such as peppermint and frankincense, which are known to energize and awaken you. It’s like coffee without the crash. It’s 100% organic, containing zero synthetics or preservatives. 

Uma Oils was founded by Shrankhla Holecek. The ingredients are sourced from her farm in India. The brand praises their Ayurvedic beliefs- which is to give back. Uma Oils donates a third of their profits to their community in India where they fund health clinics and offer academic scholarships to young girls. 

Smitten!
