How to do holiday shopping more responsibly
Shop EthicalSupporting companies that produce ethically means making life better for people all the way down the supply chain instead of reinforcing the exploitative cycle of cheap labor.
Shop SmallEvery order matters and makes a difference in the life of a small business owner. One order from a huge chain? Not so much.
Shop LocalBy shopping local brands, you're keeping your dollars in your local economy. You earned 'em, might as well have them benefit your community.
