Ethical Shopping for a Greener Holiday
Let’s demand for nothing short of ethical – only things gentle to the environment and men. Remember that the power is in our hands as consumers, we are the ones creating the demand. Let us create global change by affecting an ethical and fair trade economy. And we can begin those changes by being a conscious consumer.
Choose gifts wisely this coming Holiday to make sure that our purchases don’t burden the environment. Go for products that are made from recyclable materials or are easily recyclable. Be a conscious consumer and know the cost behind every product. A great buy is not something you get for a cheaper price, the true value of every purchase lies in its appropriateness.
Green Holiday Shopping
Opt for fair trade products for your Holiday shopping because these products are made under the guiding principles of World Fair Trade Organization. It means that the environment and the artisans and farmers behind every product are protected and well taken care for.Many small and developing communities all over the world benefits from the fair trade – for these people, it’s more than just a livelihood, it’s an opportunity of a lifetime to provide a better future for their family. So whenever we buy fair trade products, we’re not only protecting the environment, we’re also supporting the people behind it.
