I love seeing the LGBTQ+ community celebrated each June (and every month of the year!!) but while each rainbow-coloured product is a symbol of support, I especially love it when brands create Pride products that specifically give back to the LGBTQ+ community.
Below are seven different products from brands that do just that. From an incredible rainbow-striped bath bomb to an inclusive ‘agender’ oil, these are the items you should consider picking up this month!
Superfood Cleanser Pride Edition, Youth to the People ($48 CAD)
Youth to the People does amazing plant-based skincare and this product really takes advantage of skin-friendly superfoods like kale, spinach and alfalfa. For Pride they’re donating 100% of the profits from this cleanser to GLSEN, an organization that focuses on creating safe and inclusive school environments for LGBTQ+ students.
Pride Rainbow CBD Bath Bomb, Kush Queen ($17 CAD)
Kush Queen has a whole set of products that celebrate Pride, and one of them is this rainbow CBD bath bomb. They are donating 20% of the proceeds from their 2019 Pride Collection to Trans Lifeline, a trans-led organization that works toward improving the quality of life for people in the trans community. Their goal is to fight the trans suicide epidemic and facilitate justice-orientated, collective community aid.
PRISM Exfoliating Glow Potion, Herbivore Botanicals ($83 CAD)
I love the brand Herbivore as it is, but I especially love that they donate a portion of their proceeds from this serum year round to the LGBTQ+ community. For Pride they are actually increasing the donation amount taken from each product, from $1 up to $5. The money is donated to Immigration Equality, an organization that is dedicated to offering immigration-related legal assistance to LGBTQ+ immigrants in the United States.
Original Pride Play Heeled Rain Boots, Hunter Boots ($130 CAD)
These rainbow-heeled boots are limited-edition versions of Hunter’s classic PLAY boots and the proceeds from each will go towards six different charities. These include organizations like The Outside Project, the U.K’s first crisis/homeless shelter for the LGBTQ+ community, and Mermaids, an organization that provides family and individual support for transgender or gender diverse children. The charities were actually all chosen directly by some of Hunter’s LGBTQ+ ambassadors.
Agender Oil, NOTO Botanics ($53 CAD)
Made for all bodies and all hair types, this ‘agender’ oil is NOTO’s first non-profit product. Profits from the oil go towards a rotating list of charities, including organizations like the LGBT Youth Cente.
25L Live in Color Artistry Palette, Morphe Cosmetics ($26 CAD)
Along with this incredible eyeshadow palette, Morphe also realeased a set of rainbow makeup brushes. An entire 100% of proceeds from both products will be donated to The Trevor Project, a non profit that helps fund 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis intervention services for LGBTQ+ youth. We also love the names that Morphe chose for the eyeshadow shades. For example, the shade ‘Milk’ which is a tribute to the incredible activist and elected official, Harvey Milk, and ‘1978’ which is the year that the rainbow flag was first designed and began being used as a symbol for the gay rights movement.
Feel-Good Flip-Flops, Call it Spring ($13 CAD)
Call it Spring is giving 100% of the proceeds from these Pride-themed flip-flops to the It Gets Better Project, a non-profit that connectes and empowers LGBTQ+ people through storytelling and community.
