28 Gifts that Give Back

Can I just say…this blog post has me feeling good from the inside out? It makes me feel so good to know there are so many companies out there bringing good to the world.  From jewelry to children’s ware to housewares, we can make the choice as to where we’re going to send our money. Think about it….what change can we make in the world if we all purchased with the rest of the world in mind? While we aren’t giving a ton of Christmas presents this year because of our intents to minimize, these companies are hands down where I will be purchasing some of our few gifts.  Where you spend your dollar matters. Spend it focused on sustainability, world progress, and the good of humanity. You and your gift recipient will appreciate it!

I have to admit, I haven’t purchased from all these organizations. And if you know of more, let me know and I’m happy to spread the support.

They plant a tree for every mat sold.
