Shop, Travel, and Give Back at Impact Everything in Providence

Impact Everything likes to say they're not just a store, they're a movement.

See how this unique lifestyle brand is helping people in Providence shop consciously, travel, and enjoy community events.

Highlights includes:


You can find just about everything here including books and music, home furnishings, apparel, jewelry, toys, health and beauty, pet products, office supplies, and food. The founders, Lanna Nawa and Saroj Bhandari, seek out partners who hire marginalized people and donate at least 25% of the retail price of any product.

Their idea of giving isn't just writing a check either. For example, in their partnership with Headbands for Hope where they donate a headband for each one sold, they invite customers to join them each month in bringing the headbands to cancer patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital. You can shop by cause among 14 different issues including animals, homelessness, and world hunger. Even if you don't buy anything, you're welcome to pet the therapy puppy who's on duty at their flagship storefront in College Hill.


Nawa and Bhandari also operate Impact Travel, a nonprofit devoted to building schools around the world through voluntourism, where you have the opportunity to spend half your travel time volunteering. The first trip to Nepal in June expanded on a school they started building when they were still college students. Next year's destination is Uganda.


Closer to home, Impact Everything hosts fun and educational free events to help build community in Providence. You might go to a tea talk to hear one person's inspiring journey back from homelessness and addiction or learn how to craft your own edible spoons to pair with ice cream.

River House Apartments provide residents with the best amenities around, both on the property and within the city to enjoy life. Contact us to find out more about all-inclusive living in Providence.
