Let's have a sustainable Christmas
If ever there was a time to support local New Zealand businesses, 2020 is it! So we've compiled a list of some of our favourite items that would make wonderful Christmas gifts. Naturally these items also tick the sustainable and/or ethical boxes that are so important to us. And of course, we've added a handful of our own items to the list!
We are of the mindset that all of us should be buying less. But when we make a purchase we need to be intentional about who we are supporting, where that item comes from, and where it will eventually end up. The money you spend has the power to change peoples lives.
