Produced and sewn in the USA, the clothing at Majamas Earth is made from organic cotton and sustainable fabrics. They have collections for men, women, maternity, and babies.

Cocokind prides itself on being a plant-powered, sustainable, and affordable beauty brand.

Founder: Justina Blakeney
A home decor company with colorful, creatively designed products (from plants to rugs to wallpaper to ceramics), Jungalow plants at least two trees for every product purchased.
