S’well Water Bottle in Sparkling Champagne

S’well Water Bottle in Sparkling Champagne
I carry a water bottle with me everywhere I go, and this stylish one from S’well is my current favorite. It’s BPA-free, made from non-toxic, non-leaching stainless steel, and keeps drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for twelve. A portion of the proceeds are donated to non-profit WaterAid. I love the shimmery champagne colored finish, and the fact that the large one holds an entire bottle of wine.

$25-45, Modern Folk Living and S’well

Falling Whistles Vintage Brass Necklace


Falling Whistles Vintage Brass Necklace

Falling Whistles works toward ending the war in Congo, the deadliest of our time. Child soldiers too young to carry guns are sent into the jungle armed with only a whistle. The organization uses the whistle as a symbol of protest and advocates the need for whistleblowers to speak for peace and stand up for human rights. By purchasing this necklace, you’re supporting Falling Whistles’ work toward building a global coalition to demand peace in Congo and investing in Congolese visionaries.

$58, Falling Whistles

Macey Straw Hat by Goorin Bros.

Macey Straw Hat by Goorin Bros.
A good sun hat is a must-have for warmer weather. Goorin Brothers is a family company that has been making hats since 1895, so they’ve had some time to perfect the art. They also happen to be the makers of the famous Heisenberg hat from Breaking Bad. This everyday straw floppy hat has subtle hand woven texture, comes in a variety of colors and features a traditional grosgrain band — stylish sun protection.

$55, Goorin Bros.

About

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
