Ethical Gift Markets | Zero Waste, Sustainable, and Fair Trade Places to Shop Online

In last week’s post, I shared my top picks for ethical, sustainable, and fair Holiday gifts at a range of price points. That guide is also meant to introduce you to some great brands that carry gift-y items.

Today’s post has a slightly different angle. A lot of ethical brands put out their own curated gift collections or guides this time of year, so I wanted to do a roundup to give you even more ways to find what you’re looking for.
