Allbirds, Summersalt, and More Brands Travelers Love Are Donating to COVID-19 Relief Efforts
In a matter of months, COVID-19 has changed the meaning of shopping. Shopping small at local stores (online or via social media) or independent sellers (shoutout to Etsy for making it almost too easy) is more important now that it could ever have been in the past. That said, our favorite larger brands and retailers are doing some great things for COVID-19 relief by donating funds or products, some without even the contingency of purchases upfront.
If you're able, shop these brands (as well as your favorite local shops and independent sellers, of course) and contribute both to the economy and pandemic relief efforts.
