Green living and gift giving can be so simply combined. There is no need to compromise on one or the other. By giving an ethical Christmas present it’s not just the gift recipient who will benefit but the planet and the people with whom we share it. It isnt hard to find something special that does no harm to the planet and even benefits others
Eco friendly and fairtrade Christmas presents such as this exquisite necklace made from tagua nuts, also known as vegetable ivory, are gorgeous as well as earth friendly
Handmade toys made are a better choice than factory produced plastic toys and fairtrade toys are also environmentally friendly as they do not require enormous amounts of power to produce. This cute little fairtrade baby's rattle is hand crocheted

More and more people are looking to find a way of celebrating Christmas in a way that is simpler and richer in meaning. Spending hours walking around shopping centres to the sound of endless Christmas carols buying enormous amounts of unsatisfying stuff is stressful, expensive and has very little to do with the essence of Christmas time.
There are a growing number of thoughtful consumers who are looking for unique, ecofriendly gifts, gifts that last and gifts that do no harm to planet and people , even better gifts that contribute to a better world. Fair-trade products and items that are eco friendly are now high on the shopping lists of many.
Ethical Christmas gifts will not only delight the recipient but are gifts that give back to the artisans who make these brilliant products.
