Giving Compass' Take:
• Causeartist created a list of ethical holiday gifts for consumers who care about social impact.
• How can ethical holiday purchases encourage consumers to be more conscious shoppers in general?
• Read about how consumer choices can lead to more purposeful actions.
Getting through the holiday season can be a real challenge for the conscious consumer. For most shoppers, any item will do for their mother, father-in-law, uncle, or aunt, but for conscious consumers, their ethical values need to be represented in every gift given.
Here at Causeartist, we want to motivate you to keep those values in mind, and make it as accessible as possible. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to spread awareness, advocate for conscious consumerism and spread the joy of fair trade, empowering, organic, upcycled, artisanal, and ethical products through the spirit of gifting.
Shop the ethical product holiday gift guide below and enter the new year knowing how much you’ve positively impacted everyone in your life and those behind the production line of each item gifted.
Chic Made Consciously – Titus – $78: Designed to make you feel empowered, TITUS is a trendy piece that shares a remarkable story. Sustainably made from reclaimed war remnants and unexploded landmines, you can share a story of purpose and definitely make a fashion statement that proudly stands out.
Nimble – Sustainable Wireless Dual Pad – $50: Nimble is brand new to the ethical electronics space, but they are destined for huge impact. They work only with suppliers who share their values on workers’ rights, sustainable materials and reducing environmental impact. Nimble is committed to not only reducing their environmental impact through smarter production means and materials, but by encouraging the entire Nimble Community to help reduce the amount of e-waste ending up in the world’s landfills.
Indosole – Men’s ESSNTLS Slides – $45: Indosole takes old tires that would otherwise contribute to Indonesia’s massive landfill problem, and transforms them into beautiful sandals and shoes through a production process that is organic, toxic free, and environmentally sustainable.
