ETHICAL HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Hello! I'm excited to be sharing with you guys my holiday gift guide for this year! As you know I have really been trying to shop ethically and supporting slow companies, a more eco-conscious and eco-friendly way to shop.

Christmas gift shopping honestly can be stressful, and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way too! It's so tempting, especially when it gets close to the deadlines and you really just HAVE to get gifts, when your bank account really doesn't want you to go any further and you're tempted to just go somewhere and get something cheap, DON'T!! Especially during the holidays, stores are in such high demand to produce, produce, produce, and the product turnover rate is at it's highest. Not only is this bad for the poor people having to create these products, but also for the mass waste that comes from it, our earth is NOT having a very merry Christmas :-(

But you can help!! By shopping ethical brands, you are helping workers, the environment, and small brands. What's more to love?! These are some products, all from ethical brands, that I think you all would love! Let me know what you think! Are you shopping small this Christmas?
