Austin: Falling Whistles

There are so many amazing design companies that are socially conscious, many of them have founders who are from or live in Texas. Everyone from JADEtribe, GAIA for Women, TOMS, and Ashley Pittman are producing products made by people who are paid a fair wage or the merchandise benefits an organization.
The newest to be added to the list is Austin-based Falling Whistles. Sean Carasso founded FW after a visit to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where he learned that small children who were too young to carry a gun were given a whistle to blow to alert the army of oncoming fighters.
100 percent of the proceeds of each whistle purchased from FW benefits children who've escaped from the ongoing war and Texans Erin Wasson and Beyonce are already donning their own Falling Whistle necklace.
