12 Days of BLOGMAS (Day 5)



CHARCOAL SOAP

- Even giving coal to someone on the "naughty" list can make a difference. Given the popularity of charcoal in beauty products this year, the Adventure Project and APOTHEKE teamed up to create a charcoal soap that gives back.

- With each purchase of the "coal" soap, one woman in Kenya is provided with a charcoal-efficient stove. With 4 million people dying from smoke inhalation worldwide every year, these stoves can help curb the need to cook over open fires.

Price: $20

REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES

- Drinking clean water has never been easier. LifeStraw Go 2-stage filtration water bottles are equipped with a real-time filtration system, which cleans bacteria and contaminants out of water as you sip. The explorer on your list can even drink river water using the bottle — all without worry.

- Through the company's Follow the Liters program, every LifeStraw product sold provides a child in a developing country with access to clean, safe drinking water for an entire school year.

Price: $49.95

STATE BACKPACK

- STATE's Mini Kane backpacks are fashion-forward bags that deliver both style and impact. The bags feature a main storage compartment, zippered front pocket and velcro side pockets. Plus, they come in stunning color combinations, like pink and mint or green and navy. There's even an old-school Nickelodeon-themed bag.

- For each Mini Kane backpack sold, STATE will donate a pack filled with essential "tools for success" to a U.S. child in need, through the company's #GiveBackPack campaign.
