2018 Good Gifts (That Do Good) Report

Each holiday season, Americans spend over $1 trillion shopping for gifts. That’s more than twice the amount of money received by all U.S. charities in an entire year

Meanwhile, a rapidly growing number of consumers are choosing to use this purchasing power to support brands that do good for people and the planet. Neilsen estimates that 2 out of 3 consumers are now even willing to pay more for products that are natural, non-toxic, and created using ethical, eco-friendly business practices.

 
 


We created the DoneGood Shop, browser plugin, and mobile app to make it quick, easy, and affordable to discover brands that you can feel good about supporting. Recently, we analyzed over a quarter-million points of data across thousands of products from over 300 leading socially responsible brands serving customers in the U.S. in order to determine what conscious consumers are purchasing most this holiday season.
