Bulletin: Founded by Ali Kriegsman & Alana Branston
If you happen to be in or around New York this holiday season, stop by one of @bulletin.co's 3 locations to find apparel, accessories, trinkets, patches and more for all the feminists in your life (we hope there are many). But if a trip to the Big Apple isn't in the plans this year, Bulletin now offers all of their products on their website! Our picks? This hand stamped 'U know what I like' necklace, and this 'Viva la vulva' hat. And a huge bonus: 10% of all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood of NYC.

Dame: Founded by Alex Fine and Janet Lieberman
Dame's mission is simple: to close the pleasure gap between men and women. With three different vibrators-- Fin, Pom, and Eva II, @dameproducts wants to ensure each partner reaches maximum pleasure, whether you're playing together or doing it solo. And as the days get shorter and the nights get longer, you may as well have some fun in the dark! Shop Dame products here.
And obviously there's a code. You guessed it-- 'Sustain' for 15% off your order.
Clary Collection: Founded by Adriel Denae & Jen Auerbach
After the birth of their children, moms (and founders) Adriel and Jen were forced to reevaluate the products they could trust. They looked to the skincare space and found that although it was filled with buzzwords like 'organic', 'clean', and 'natural', many brands couldn't live up to their claims. They've since centered @clarycollection around traditional oil-infusions, and have created balms, serums, oils, and soaps that are as gentle as they are effective-- see for yourself on their site here.
The custom code: 'Sustain' for 15% off site-wide!
The Setting: Founded by Amanda Shine and Billur Kazaz
After meeting in an NYC art studio in 2015, the women behind @thesettingnyc combined creative forces to create "one of a kind moments" through custom ceramics and dish-ware. From personalized table-settings to ring dishes, each of their hand-made pieces adds a unique flare that could never be matched by an overproduced Ikea imitator. An insider's tip: check out the 'Recipes' section of their blog here to find the most beautiful dishes to fill your new instagram-worthy plates, bowls, and mugs.
The Little Market: Founded by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla
Since its beginnings in 2013, @thelittlemarket has provided a platform for artisans all over the world to showcase their work. As a member of the Fair Trade Federation, they ensure that their partners are being paid fairly, and given access to literacy workshops, business training, and health programs to improve their quality of life-- and we think that's pretty cool. They offer huge range of products, but we love this empowering tote for just $20. Check out their site here.
Anne's Apothecary: Founded by Anne Lawoyin
As a small-batch, hand-crafted skin care company based in North Carolina, @annesapothecary believes that everything you put on your skin should also be safe enough to go in your mouth, which is definitely an idea we can get behind! Their masks, oils, moisturizers, and more are all preservative and paraben-free, and are packaged in glass or recyclable PET plastic, so you can rest assured your purchase is safe and sustainable. Shop all their goodies here!
And the discount: 'SUSTAIN15' for 15% off everything!
Lunya: Founded by Ashley Merrill
When the play is over and you'd prefer to slip into something more comfortable, @Lunya is the place to go. They sell a whole variety of sustainably-sourced sleep-sets, socks, and loungewear so comfy it may knock those aforementioned socks right off. The products are a bit on the pricier side, but it truly pays to feel like you're sleeping in a cloud. Check them out for yourself here.
Sustain Natural: Founded by Meika Hollender
Please hold while we toot our own horn. And hear us out-- our brand new Period Cup is the perfect gift for any eco-conscious vagina-haver. You know when you buy a gift for someone and you ask yourself, "But when will they ever use this?" Our cup is designed to be used over, and over, and over again (for 3 years to be exact!). It's a one and done deal. Shop the cup (and all of our other period and sex goodies) on our site here :)
