Lest anyone think shopping for the global good leads only to Africa, closer to home Asia too abounds in opportunities to stylishly self-indulge while supporting others. Though designed for men who hang 10, I wear KADU (kaduwaters.com) board shorts ($1,745) instead of skirts. A percentage of each pair of these ultra-high-tech and equally versatile Indonesian textile printed shorts sold supports clean water projects on the isle of Sumba, 250 miles east of Bali and home to some of surfing’s most legendary breaks. Stylishly clad from head to toe while helping others is the best way I know of making travel meaningful, even on days I don’t go anywhere at all.
