You may have heard about one-for-one companies. Essentially for every item a company sells, another item is donated to a chosen project. It’s a great way to make an everyday purchase and give back. Fortunately there are several companies that follow this model, from shoes to books to glasses. We here at Goodshop love the idea of companies that have the same “shop for good” mentality as us, and have shared some of our favorites!
The original one-for-one company. TOMS started out donating a pair of shoes for every pair bought. Since their start back in 2006, they’ve expanded the products to include glasses, watches, clothing and more. They’ve even started a coffee roasting company, with purchases supporting water systems around the world.
Started by a 7-year-old who wanted to give back to other children, Everything Happy offers blankets, animal toys, pillows and apparel for kids. With the motto “One to Love, One to Give,” Everything Happy donates a product to orphanages, children’s hospitals and poverty-stricken communities. Be sure to use these Everything Happy coupons and deals on your next children’s purchase.

FIGS is mostly known for their top-quality medical scrubs but they also have a great selection of casual wear. As part of their Threads for Threads program, FIGS will donate a pair of scrubs to a healthcare provider in a developing country for every pair purchased. If you’re stocking up on your own pair of scrubs or springing for one of their jackets, you can use these FIGS coupons, offers and deals to save money.
