The 17 United Nations Global Goals are the way to a sustainable future. We've joined forces with BOTTLETOP, a sustainable accessories brand who created #TOGETHERBAND to raise awareness and funds for the goals.

17 goals, 17 bands. You get two bands – one to wear, one to share. And all the profits go to projects working towards the goals. #TOGETHERBAND will unite us as a global community, sharing commitment to all 17 UN Global Goals. Join the movement.

Why purchasing your #TOGETHERBAND has helped save the world

The profits from the sale of all our #TOGETHERBANDs go to nonprofit organizations that are working to impact the Goals in a positive way.

And rather than just taking our word for it, we wanted to introduce you to some of the brilliant people and organizations that will be putting your money to good use.
