3 Local Business and Charities to Watch in November

This month's mix includes floral arrangements, sustainable clothing, and the Celebrity Beach Soccer Match

Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Contribute to yours—or your host’s—with a centerpiece from The Bouqs Co.

They roasted the turkey, cleaned their house and coordinated with everyone to pull off a Thanksgiving feast worthy of a Norman Rockwell painting. Offering to send a floral arrangement from The Bouqs Co. is the perfect way to contribute (what table arrangement is complete without autumn blooms?) and show your appreciation to your host with minimal effort or expense. Gorgeous, holiday-centric designs are available and set to impress, starting at only $39—and you won’t have to worry that what you select will arrive as a completely different (sad, underwhelming) arrangement.

To choose yours, visit bouqs.com.

Sustainable Fashion

Look and feel good with ANTIDOTE’s latest capsule collection.

Made In Latam, ANTIDOTE’s latest capsule collection showcasing the best of emerging and sustainable Latin designers, is curated by contributing writer to Elle Mexico, Camila Straschnoy. The designers showcased are proud of their roots and work with artisans who empower communities across the region and aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of what they know in order to discover new ways of creating beautiful pieces. The designer line-up features Toribio & Donato, a Costa Rican-based ready-to-wear brand working with fabrics made from recycled water bottles; Mout, a Colombian-based jewelry brand that hand-makes all their pieces locally, and Adriana Castro, also a Colombian-based brand, working with local artisanal communities to hand-make leather goods. The collection is officially live on antidote.us with price points ranging from $40-$700.
