Christmas is the time of the year where everyone, whether wanting to save the planet or not, becomes a consumer. I don’t want to ruin everyone’s Christmas by telling you to buy less, so instead, here is a list of sustainable, slow fashion and independent businesses with great gift ideas. You will not only make your family member happy with these pieces, but you are supporting small business owners too.
