I always try to support small businesses whenever I can. But I think we can all agree that this year has been especially hard for a lot of businesses, especially small ones.
That’s why this year I wanted to highlight some small ethical businesses to support this Christmas. These shops and brands offer an array of gorgeous ethically and handmade items that are perfect for gifting this holiday season. Best yet, you’re not putting extra money into the billionaires who are thriving, but you’re putting food on the table, and gas in the tank of real, hard-working people and families.
