The holiday season is a time when people tend to reflect on the things that truly matter to them. Some of our team members have decided to share what the holidays mean to them and which sustainable goodies are on their Christmas lists this year.
The silly season is upon us with gift-hunting, Christmas shopping frenzy and dropping some serious hints to loved ones. But this doesn’t mean your environmental and ethical conscience needs to go out the window. We round up the best eco-friendly and fair trade presents around, for everyone from your nana to your furry friend in this sustainable gift guide.
A kiss on the hand might be quite continental but (ethical) diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Here are some of our favourite ethical jewellery brands that empower local communities, recycle used materials and keep your fingers and toes looking fancy.
Chocolate and Christmas go together like chocolate and Valentine’s Day, or chocolate and Easter, or chocolate and 3pm on a weekday, or…actually chocolate is the appropriate response to most situations.
We love our Fairtrade chocolate here at Good On You. Buying Fairtrade means knowing that the farmers who produced the ingredients are getting a good deal – and Fairtrade chocolate is often better quality (i.e. higher cocoa content) than a lot of high street brands.
Whether you’re hunting for a meaningful gift for your sister or have yet to hint to the hubby what you’d like for the holidays, an ethically-made handbag is always a great option. After all, it’s a way to carry your values on your shoulder! Take a look at the chic ethical handbags we’re swooning over this season; there’s one for every lady in your life.
They say that good things come in small packages and when it comes to Christmas that is definitely true!
Whether you’re looking for a teeny token of appreciation for a teacher, customer or colleague, sending something little via post or agonizing over stocking fillers, we’ve got you covered.
It’s almost Christmas and the mad dash continues (or in some cases is only just beginning) for the perfect gift for your loved ones.
