Earth day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. What better way to show your support for Mother Earth than indulging yourself in eco-friendly luxury items.

This new breed of high-end designers are throwing out the ever so popular idea of the “granola and hemp” lifestyle and putting sustainable products on the market. Here are a few of the stylish sustainable fashion brands there.

Integrate, a Scottsdale-based marketing automation software company, is growing and giving this spring. Integrate is tripling its office space and preparing to hire 50 new employees. At the same time, the company is holding a food drive to help restock St. Mary’s Food Bank.

Integrate is preparing to move its headquarters to Scottsdale Portales, increasing its office space to 33,000 sq. feet with 178 state-of-the-art work stations. It plans to add 50 new people to its team across all departments in the next 50 days. These positions include administrative staff, account support, inside sales, business development, marketing strategists, techs, computer programmers and analysts. This growth initiative is possible through the company’s $11M Series B funding received in March.

“Integrate is growing at a rapid rate,” says the company’s CEO, Hart Cunningham. “Our new Scottsdale location reflects the premier reputation that we are forging in the advertising technology industry. We also have offices in Denver, New York, San Francisco and Boston, with plans to expand internationally in the near future. We are excited to provide hundreds of motivated and driven people with the opportunity to build a career with an innovative company.”

In celebration of its growth, the company organized a drive to help restock food, necessities and household items for St. Mary’s Food Bank. Integrate will match every item brought in by employees, friends, family and local citizens. It hopes to gather enough supplies to support 500 members of the Greater Phoenix community. “Our company is experiencing an amazing year. We are grateful for the chance to pay it forward as a team and give back to struggling families in the area,” states Cunningham.
