CAUSE AND EFFECT

We know our shopping habits don’t exactly reduce our carbon footprint. So we’re always thrilled to find designers and retailers who donate a significant portion of their proceeds to worthy causes. The Community Collection is our newest resource for finding such fashionable and noble goods.

This new e-commerce website offers limited-edition collections from big-name labels–Helmut Lang, Theory, Tibi and Diane von Furstenberg, to name a few–with 20 percent of every sale going to that designer’s favorite charity. So every Alexis Bittar purchase, for instance, supports Flying Kites Global (which works to improve the living conditions of Kenyan children), while buying fromInhabit means a donation to the World Wildlife Fund.

Plus, as you would expect from such high-end fashion houses, the offerings are pretty darn covetable. We’re loving the Alexander Wang Silver Zip sunglasses ($330 with $66 toward assisting American service members) and this ADAM cardigan, ($325 with $65 toward the American Cancer Society), but Cut25’s Ikat Slice dress ($370 with $74 toward a children’s medical charity) is definitely our pick for the most exciting and versatile wardrobe addition.
