Give &
give some more!

Your eco-friendly gift buying guide this holiday!

First and foremost I highly recommend you visit your local shops & markets that are supporting your local makers & creatives!

If you can't help but order online, I am going to share some of my favorite companies, brands, & small businesses below.

 

Sure, shopping at Target & Amazon is easy....but I made it easy to shop at companies that are doing much more impactful work for our world.

Recommended online SHops:

The best products for your body. I love their chap stick and eczema cream. Great for stocking stuffers! 

They have it all, seriously. Their mission is "to make sustainable shopping so easy, everyone does it". Yes please!

Used outdoor gear for your adventure buddies! I have scored so much good stuff here!

Organic cotton clothing, bedding, and bath towels made in Fair Trade Certified factories. Super cute too!

A passionate outdoor-inspired artist who creates illustrations through hand drawings and photoshop work.

"Ethical online marketplace connecting the growing a community of conscious consumers with sustainable products and non profit causes to better the world." 

Because everyone needs cleaning products! "...delivering value, quality environmentally responsible ingredients, safety, highly effective formulas and the attentive customer care you deserve."

The opposite of fast fashion. Ethical approach, designed to last, & radical transparency around cost. Their  environmental initiatives are worth checking out.

These women have a delicious collection of fair-trade organic herbs and spices that every kitchen needs!

Perfect gifts for any adventurer. Bryn has originals, prints, gift/post cards, stickers, and more! She is always donating to rad organizations like Carian Project & Mountain Area Preservation.  

The most delicious chai EVER. Made in small batches by hand, respecting origins, striving for sustainability, and support the Chico community.

Their story brings tears to my eyes.

"Tahmina is a WOC-owned brand with a mission to build ethical markets for conflict-affected communities."
