Top Picks: Ethical Gift Guides
As a follow on from our recent article A Merry, Ethical Christmas, we have gathered our top Ethical Gift Guides, for when we do decide to purchase a gift for a loved one and want to make a positive impact by doing so.
When we do head out to the shops, let’s keep in mind that money is power, and we can use this power this Christmas as a chance to cast our vote, and vote for the brands and products that look after our world and it’s people. With increased consumer and brand awareness around the negative effects of garment production and the fashion industry, there are more and more brands popping up all over the world offering ethically and sustainably produced and sourced products. In support of this, there are loads of blogs and bloggers out there advocating for these brands, providing detailed information on where to shop, what to look for and what impact we can make as consumers.
Here is a collated list of our favourite Gift Guides, to help you easily gather information and shop ethically this Christmas.
