While some may maintain that “there is no ethical consumption under capitalism,” millenials, on the whole, seem to disagree. As a generation, we consider and make our purchasing choices based on the ethics of companies, and have almost come to expect businesses looking to make us their target market to engage in charitable giving and ethical business practices as the default. Whether it’s our condoms and lubricant, our food, or our clothing, we want to know not only that we’re not contributing to harm, but helping others when we buy our necessities and beyond – but we also don’t want to sacrifice quality or style. If you’re a fashionista looking to add some beautiful and quality items to your wardrobe while also making the world a better place, Spade Eleven is perfect for you.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Spade Eleven is a premium womenswear fashion retailer with a philanthropic heart. They take beautifully crafted, quality clothing, sell it for a profit, and donate 10% of the proceeds to properly vetted, worthy causes. A woman-owned philanthropic fashion business, they are dedicated to empowering women and improving the global community. Which means that when you purchase from Spade Eleven’s selection of bold, luxurious, and sophisticated women’s clothing, you help women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
Spade Eleven’s donation recipients change, with their current cause being featured on their site. At the moment, 10% of your purchase will be donated to Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
If you’re looking for women’s clothing and want quality, beautifully-crafted clothes while also being able to support worthy causes, check out Spade Eleven’s current collection or subscribe to their mailing list – and don’t forget to give them a follow on Instagram and a like on Facebook, too. Currently, they’re offering free domestic and international shipping with the code “SHIPFREE”.
If you’re located in Atlanta, keep your eye out – Spade Eleven will be holding a pop-up shop end of April to collect funds for donation to City of Refuge foundation.
