Milk and Honey Clay

Based out of Beaverton, Oregon, this Filipina-owned small biz is all about purchasing with purpose. Jayna, the founder of Milk and Honey Clay, launched this passion project as a way to raise awareness about the injustice of human trafficking. For each handcrafted pair of clay earrings sold, 20% of the profit is donated to anti-human trafficking organizations in the US and around the world.

Or maybe it's the ultra-organized vegan leather tote you can pack your whole life in without looking like a pack mule?

She's committed to sweating the small stuff, working hard to have the smallest impact on the environment possible, while working closely with her manufacturing partners to ensure all workers are treated fairly.
