Your 2019 Gift Guide for Socially Conscious Gifts

gift guide of socially conscious brands

Voting doesn’t have to end when the polls close. Where you choose to spend your money can make a big impact on the world. And it’s as easy as shopping with companies who have a strong social mission and are dedicated to using business as a force for good. You can make a world of difference when you buy from companies that source sustainable materials, support fair trade farmers, or utilize non-toxic or organic ingredients.

This holiday season, vote with your wallet and shop for socially conscious gifts. Instead of shopping at big box stores, choose to spend your money with independently owned merchants. We are proud to partner with five role-model businesses for our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts That Give Back.  Learn how each of these companies are taking a slightly different approach to make the world a better place, and be sure to take advantage of the great discounts they are offering.  Thanks for joining us to make things a little brighter this December.  May your shopping choices be filled with joy, excitement, and a plethora of extraordinary chocolate moments!
