Cotopaxi funds solutions that address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty" 2. United by Blue. https://unitedbyblue.com "For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways. And by that, we don’t mean writing checks or ac...
