APPAREL

Cuyana is a women’s fashion brand based in San Francisco that has a beautiful selection of apparel, bags, and accessories. They have a “lean shipping” option at the checkout where they will send you a reusable bag to fill up with “items that aren’t helping you live your beautiful life”. When you mail the bag back to them, they donate clothing to women in need via their non-profit partner, H.E.A.R.T. Added bonus: for every donation you make, Cuyana gives you a $10 credit towards your next purchase! Their lightweight cashmere scarf is a wonderfully versatile present.
