Brands That Give Back

Beauty/Fashion

Recently when it comes to buying clothes I have been really looking for brands that give back. About a week ago a brand named Peak Above commented on one of my Instagram posts. I checked out their page and instantly fell in love.

This brand is all about bringing awareness to mental health. I loved their clothing, as well as the meaning behind each shirt. I chose to purchase a tee for myself. I got the “Can’t Beat The Peak Tee” . The mountain peaks on the logo represent strength, progression, and stability. Once you reach this peak nothing can beat it. Depression, anxiety, whatever it is that you are struggling with can not beat this peak!

I truly love the message they are spreading, not only is mental health awareness something that is extremely personal to me, but something that I will always fight for. So many people everyday are struggling in silence, and that needs to change. Not only did their message have me hooked, but this brand also gives back to support mental health awareness. They donate 10% of their proceeds to Mental Health America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping all people live mentally healthier lives.

With it being mental health awareness month, I figured this would be the perfect brand to spot light. If you have never checked them out please do! I love brands that not only use their platform to send a powerful message, but to also give back to organizations. The t-shirt I purchased was great quality, extremely comfortable, and so cute! I can’t wait to sport it all summer.

I encourage you to find more brands that give back. I would love to make it a goal for myself as well, so I can share them with you all. Shopping is always fun, but it feels even better when you know your money is supporting a good cause!

I would love to do a post like this every month, just to show you my monthly favorites. I love posts like these, because it shows you new things to try! So with that being said here are some items that I loved in the month of March (and am still loving).

Ozark Trail 24 oz Water Bottle $7.74

This product absolutely blew me away! I was needing a good water bottle to use when working out, and this one is better than I imagined. My boyfriend in I found these in Walmart in the camping section and decided to give them a try. They hold ice like a yeti cup (or better) and they are way cheaper!

Alani Nu Pre-Workout-Rainbow Candy $39.99

One of my absolute must haves when it comes to my workouts! Rainbow Candy was the first flavor I’ve tried and I absolutely love it. I just recently ran out, and ordered a new one to try, but I 10/10 recommend this if you are looking for a good pre workout. I put this in around 6-8 oz of water and drink it about 10 minutes before my actual workout. I feel so energized after, and it is perfect for days when you need a little extra boost!

Pop Chips-BBQ $3.49

These are the perfect snack if you are looking for a healthy alternative to chips! They come in a bunch of different flavors but BBQ is one of my personal favorites. I have been making healthy switches for a lot of my foods, so I love eating these in place of chips.

Silk Almondmilk Strawberry Yogurt $1.38

I was beyond happy when I discovered this. I love yogurt, but I’m lactose intolerant so regular yogurt isn’t always the best option. I have been OBSESSED with this, it is seriously so good…I even like it better than normal yogurt. It is not only dairy free, but soy free and gluten free as well.
