The holiday season has officially kicked off and it is in full swing! I decided to make a little guide to the craziest sales weekend of the year. This guide includes all of my favorite ethical and sustainable brands that decided to have a sale or to give back. Every time we spend our money we’re casting a vote on the world we want. If we want women to be treated fairly and our environment to thrive, we need to worry about where we’re putting our hard earned money. So shop at some of these incredible companies this weekend to keep your heart warm and your wallet full.
Able. Able aims to provide economic opportunity for women in developing countries. They pay all of their garment workers a fair wage. I wish this wasn’t a surprising or notable thing in the fashion industry but it is. Where we spend our money is very important to the livelihood of so many different communities.
