Sustainable Shopping for Spring 

By Real Leaders

Whether you’re looking for a unique gift for someone special or to treat yourself to a guilt-free find, here are some do-good options to consider from 2024 Real Leaders Top Impact Companies.

Squeaky Clean Supply Chain

Every Man Jack (No. 39 on the 2024 Real Leaders Top Impact Companies list) makes body wash, deodorant, hair care, skin care, and beard care that’s inspired by the outdoors and better for the planet. Not only does it use as many naturally derived and plant-based ingredients as possible, but also it uses source reduction, hazardous waste disposal, greener packaging, and chemical reduction methods.

Laying a Kind Foundation

Jaipur (No. 10) creates beautiful bespoke and custom living area rugs like Genesis, pictured. It employs 40,000 disadvantaged artisans (85% women) in 700+ Indian villages to provide a reliable living wage with an age-old art. The family business is built on kindness, compassion, and humility, creating economic and humanitarian benefits for stakeholders.

Earth-Friendly E-Marketplace

Brown Living’s (No. 70) online shop offers environmentally sustainable, plastic-free products with zero-waste packaging sourced from over 450 artists, artisans, and small businesses. The Conscious Traveler Premium Gift Hamper, pictured, includes travel items made with Forest Stewardship Council-certified cork, a high-grade natural bamboo fiber tumbler, and stainless steel cutlery.

Eyeglasses for the Planet

Karün (No. 3) makes high-quality eyewear and is building its value chain under a circular, regenerative model to protect nature and empower rural entrepreneurs. The carbon-neutral company makes all of its products with natural, noble, and recycled materials, like fishing nets, metals, recycled polycarbonate, and wood.

Steeped in Goodness

Steeped Coffee (No. 147) makes single-serve specialty coffee that works like a tea bag with compostable packaging. Simply drop it in hot water — no pods, plugs, or brewing equipment needed. Coffee beans are carefully sourced from ethical suppliers with Fair Trade Certified and organic options, and the company donates 1% of its top-line revenue to communities in need.
