Ho ho ho, it’s prezzie time! Or at least, it almost is. Giving something to someone special can be so much fun. There’s still a lot of gifts out there made by little children hands, or by highly underpaid people around the world. Or filled with chemicals. So when you want to give someone a gift in December, please do consider something that is fair made, sustainable or completely natural, you wouldn’t want to receive something that has suffering behind it either right? So here it is, my tips for a sustainable, fair trade, honest or natural gift. Happy holidays!
