With Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and all the pressures of holiday shopping coming up, the question of which gifts to buy is at the forefront of the mind. So while you’re thinking of gifting, why not give meaningful eco-friendly gifts!
Here is my list of favorite sustainable fashion companies and some discount codes (though they all have great Black Friday discounts – some starting today – too!).
