Vegan Christmas Gift Guide 2022

In Green & Ethical Living by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Gifted items.

Christmas is around the corner – well, a few more weeks left until then. This is the best time to think about your Christmas gifts (if you have not started yet) because you can avoid rush, low stocks and it gets you into a festive mood just like Christmas baking and decorating.

This year is the first year I dedicate a gift guide for vegans – because I think it’s so important! Eating less meat is much better for us and the environment but also: respecting the lives of animals and not to kill or torture them. It is an issue very close to my heart. So hopefully, dear reader, you’ll find some ideas and inspiration reading this post.

I’ve got fantastic items coming from indie brands and small businesses, and most of them are also either eco-friendly or ethically produced – or both! Shopping local and with online small businesses are important for me and for all of us. They play an important role in communities and they have a major economic impact. As for the green and ethical aspect, these are very important issues for me. I’d like to create awareness, because making conscious choices when deciding about a purchase is more possible than ever these days. We can do better, by making positive choices for people and planet. Money is a vote which you can use every time you go shopping. By using your spending power wisely you can help to create a better, healthier and greener world.
