Win a $200 giveaway to Accompany

In this day and age, we don’t often give much thought as to where our clothes and housewares come from. Or who made them. Or under what conditions. It’s something I’m absolutely guilty of myself, and while I try to stay away from big box retailers when possible, there’s definitely a lot of room for improvement. Let’s face it – it can be really difficult to figure out what is truly ethically made, and even harder to find ethically made items that actually suit your taste. Luckily there’s a store out there that’s got you covered on both fronts!

Accompany is a gorgeously curated boutique with a core belief that the fashion industry has the power to promote economic development and social responsibility on a global level. Instead of focusing on donations (which can be a temporary solution to an underlying problem), Accompany connects with like-minded artisans and partners worldwide to promote the economies of low income areas – often travelling to chat with them and check out work spaces in person! All of the store’s merchandise meets high standards in one or more of these 3 key areas: handmade and artisanal goods, fair trade practice, and humanitarian/philanthropic causes. This model makes it possible for people in poverty stricken areas to gain self-sufficiency, preserve local cultures, and develop a higher quality of life. Pretty incredible, right?

And while Accompany is passionate about its values, just a quick look around proves it never loses sight that it’s a super chic shopping site! The folks there have such a great eye for design that it was hard to pick just a handful of items to feature in the image above. There’s even a “boutique” section that displays items by theme, so there’s something for everyone whether you’re adventurous or preppy!

Now who feels like doing a little bit of shopping? Accompany is generously offering one lucky Little White Whale reader $200 in store credit (yay!), so go and enter using the Rafflecopter below! Even if you don’t happen to win, I hope you’ll leave their site a little more mindful that every purchase you make can have a real purpose, as I have.

*** This giveaway open to readers in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. It will close on Tuesday, May 21st at 11:59 PM EST. Good luck!!

TGIF! And what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway? A few weeks ago, Jen wrote me an email introducing me to her fabulous store, BRIKA and generously offered me store credit to try it out.

And now BRIKA is offering you a chance to win a $50 gift card of your very own!
