Think before you drink with these bevvies working for a good cause!

It may seem too good to be true, but thanks to a number of companies that are producing booze for great causes, you can sip with peace of mind!

We’ve rounded up a list of our favourite drinks who are making a difference, with their proceeds going to everything from rescuing dogs to supporting Aussie farmers.

Tread Softly 

Tread Softly is out here saving the Earth one wine at a time! Sourced predominantly from established vineyards in SA, the wines seek to reduce their carbon footprint by employing more efficient practices and planting an Australian native tree for every dozen sold (does that give us an excuse to buy a dozen?). They are making a huge difference, with over 102,000 trees planted to date. With its low carbon footprint and moderate alcohol content, Tread Softly is perfect for wine-lovers who are after great-tasting wine that is naturally lower in alcohol. 

Sit Stay Society Wines

Sit Stay Society Wines is a celebration of the furry friends who are always by our side. The dog-loving brand works in partnership with Pet Rescue, with 50c from every purchase donated to Pet Rescue’s pet adoption programs. They’ve created a boutique range of wines with a unique touch, featuring a different dog breed and personality on each wine. They even come in a convenient half-bottle size, which is ideal for a cheeky mid-week drink! To get your paws on a bottle, head to Dan Murphy’s or BWS.

Hughie Beer

Hughie is a brand new Australian beer, and we’re pretty bloody excited to meet him. But it gets better – $2 from every case will be donated to the charity GIVIT, helping to raise funds for drought-affected farming communities. After last year was Australia’s driest on record, farmers, business and their families have been doing it tough. ‘Hughie’ is here to give back to these communities, and doesn’t compromise on taste. You can expect a light, refreshing lager, perfect for that Friday arvo knock-off.

Absolut Elyx Vodka

Did you know that water makes up more than half of a bottle of vodka? It’s okay, neither did we. Luxury vodka brand Absolut is doing their bit to reduce its water footprint, by collaborating with the Water for the People organisation to provide communities with clean water. So far, the scheme has helped more than 31,000 people and is showing no signs of slowing down. The award-winning vodka shows off a striking new bottle design and offers a rich and smooth flavour, perfect for those summertime cocktails!

Goodwill Wine

Drink your way to a better future with Goodwill wine. For each online order, 50% of the profits will be donated to the charity of your choice. Your money will go wherever your heart is, with over 300 charities to choose from. Whether you’re set on saving animals, helping world hunger, or conserving the environment, here’s your chance to help out in a small way. You’ll also be spoilt for choice with a wide variety of wines available at a very affordable price. It’s a win-win!

Little Giant Wine

Prepare for a cuteness overload… Little Giant Wine is partnering with wildlife rescue organisation WIRES to help baby wombats grow into healthy and happy adults. The funding raised by sales of Little Giant Wine will provide support to wombats who are facing increasing threats from habitat loss, vehicle collisions, disease and injuries from bushfires. The wines are hand-crafted, made with minimal preservatives and additives to retain the authentic flavours of the grapes. Make sure to pick yourself up a bottle available at most major retailers nationally – the wombats will thank you for it! 

Snow Leopard Vodka 

David Attenborough has called snow leopards the ‘holy grail of wildlife’, and if this isn’t a good enough reason to save them, we don’t know what is. This Polish vodka brand is working to prevent the extinction of the species, which are currently critically endangered. By donating 15% of profits donated to the Snow Leopard Trust, the brand is committed to saving these stunning creatures whilst delivering an exceptional tasting premium vodka product.
