As Amazon Prime has continued to rise in popularity, our reliance on it for holiday gifts has almost become a given.
And no one can blame you for wanting to avoid the crowds, shop in the comfort of your own home, get free shipping (well, “free” shipping for $120/year), and have it delivered to your door in two days.
But if Amazon’s questionable product supply chains and environmental impact is starting to trouble you, you can still get your holiday shopping done quickly, conveniently, inexpensively, and ethically! Here are 7 ethical brands that offer special holiday shipping perks. So long, Amazon Prime!
As we hurtle toward the holiday season at full speed, you may be growing a little concerned about your holiday shopping budget. It’s a common phenomenon this time of year, but can be even more impactful for those of us who are trying to shop ethically.
It’s not that ethical options are always expensive, but the brands that are running their businesses at a higher standard and the brands that put on larger-than-life Black Friday sales don’t share a ton of overlap.
But don’t throw in the organic cotton towel just yet, because we’ve got something better than Black Friday planned- Shop For Good Sunday! It’s happening on December 1st this year, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and it’s the ethical alternative to all the Black Friday madness.
Welcome, loved ones of an eco-conscious consumer!
If you’re pretty new to this whole intentional shopping thing and want to make sure you get it right this year, you’ve come to the right place, and we’re happy to have you!
It’s actually a great time to be shopping for the environmental advocate in your life, because these days, there are more and more products being designed with sustainability in mind.
If this is your first year as a conscious consumer, there are a few things that you might want to know as we approach the holiday season.
After all, if you’re used to two-minute shipping speeds and have come to rely on them, you might be in for a disappointing Christmas!
Because many of our DoneGood Approved brands make handmade, custom, and made-to-order merchandise, you’re going to want to leave a bit of a longer lead time.
Many also utilize more eco-friendly shipping methods that may take longer to get to you.
But now that you know that, you can plan ahead! And with a little extra preparation, this year’s festivities can go just as smoothly as last year’s- but with way more ethically made goodies!
