Holiday presents are great. Getting them. Giving them. This year, what if the gifts we select for our loved ones could do more than bring joy to just one person? What if they could help a homeless person in need of new socks or underwear, or fund a micro-loan to a farmer in Chile, keep our oceans cleaner, or give someone a job? Sounds like a win-win to me. So this year, we are focusing Turq’s Holiday Gift Picks on products with a conscience. Brands who draw their motivation for success from giving back and helping others. Tis the season, after all.
The greatest socks in the history of feet. Bombas not only is the best fitting and feeling sock in the market, but the rocking guys at Bombas donate 1 for 1. Not a “portion of the proceeds”, not “a percent of profits”, but a pair of socks are donated to homeless shelters for every pair that they sell. Socks and underwear are the most requested items in homeless shelters–so this is meaningful, people. It’s almost a bonus that they are so beautifully designed and engineered that your happy feet will sing “Joy to the World”.
The belt that changed the belt. A perfect fit every hour of every day. No holes– really. The innovative buckle design is not only sleek, but easily adjusts to the 1/4″. Much more comfy after that awesome home cooked Christmas dinner. The guys at The Mission Belt Co. have partnered with Kiva to provide micro-loans ranging from $25-$500 dollars per loan. Small loans make HUGE differences. There are millions of industrious, motivated people striving for a better life, and sometimes the only thing holding them back is a little capital to get started. It’s a hand up, not a hand out.
It may be snowing up north…but surf’s up somewhere! The guys at Fair Harbor have designed the ultimate boardshort. 2 parts rad, 1 part retro. Here’s the kicker–they’re made from plastic bottles. Yeah, 11 of them. Inspired by their love of the ocean and concern for the earth, the boys at Fair Harbor are dedicated to using recycled and sustainable fabrics and driving awareness to help protect and preserve our world.
They’ve got it all going on. Not only are they at the front end of the super-cool bow-tie mega trend, but they don’t hold back on righteousness. The team at Collared Greens are 100% committed to American manufacturing AND dedicated to protecting our environment by contributions made through their CG24 Conservation Project. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
This season, TURQ will follow the example of our fellow philanthropic entrepreneurs and donate one pair of Turqs to Dignity U Wear for each item sold at Turqsport.com in the month of December. Dignity U Wear provides new clothing to school children, the homeless, veterans in need, and women and children in crisis.
