Their charitable business model wasn’t just an afterthought; it’s the foundation of their brand idea.

For every product you buy, Bombas will donate another to a variety of homeless shelters in the US, having donated about 23 million items already.

Their brand boasts of being the first of its kind (an aluminum-free deodorant) that is now award-winning. Getting a leg up from Shark Tank resulted in a 6,000% growth after appearing on the show, Jess Edelstein and Sarah Ribner have come very far from being a bootstrapped brand that they started out of their kitchen.

Their product is great – there is no doubt about that. But it’s their sheer determination that made us a big brand fan. From kitchen to Shark Tank, their story shows us what determination and rolling with the punches looks like.

Another successful brand that puts a big focus on giving back is Pura Vida Bracelets.

Not only are their products fabulous, but their store and goal are just as sparkly. After the first success, Griffin and Paul teamed up with Jorge, Joaquin and other struggling artists, and set out to create and sell handcrafted bracelets in endless color combinations.

Plus, a portion of their profits go to charities, having already donated nearly $1.7 million to causes their shoppers care about.

Rebel Girls online store

Annual Revenue: $4+ Million

Rebel Girls’ book “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” shot to fame after a very successful Kickstarter campaign that generated $675,614 in presale revenue. This was followed by a total of 3.5 million copies sold independently. Since then, they have become more than just a book; they have grown into an eCommerce brand that includes books, art, stationery and bags. 

What do we love most about this Shopify Plus example? 

As someone who has bought Rebel Girls books for my friend’s baby shower myself, I have been a fan of their concept for some time. But it’s their transition from book to full brand that has us in awe. In essence, this brand has become a revolution, gaining huge popularity among parents the world round. But there is one element that we are particularly excited about, their podcast, that is designed for their young book readers and takes their product digital.
