Pittsburgh Makers Who Are Giving Back

Pittsburgh Makers Who Are Giving Back

Giving back to our community is a key value we practice through product partnerships, our decline a bag program, and register donation boxes.  We are proud to have donated thousands of dollars to local organizations who are making a difference including Hello Neighbor, Tree Pittsburgh, and Nose 2 Tail Cat Rescue.  When you shop with us, it helps us support these great causes, but there are even more ways to make your dollars do good.  

Choosing to buy from brands who have support worthy causes is a great way for your purchases to make a positive impact.  Here we are celebrating local brands who also give back that you can shop right now.

A passion for animal rescue, and volunteering for a local animal shelter was the spark for Curly Tail's commitment to donate a portion of sales from every bag to animal rescue causes.  An added bonus when enjoying a cup of their delicious small batch brews.
