You’ve likely seen fair trade labels and ethical consumption advertised online and in certain stores, but what does it really mean to be an ethical shopper in this day and age?
With the holiday season just around the corner, here are some ways you can be a more conscientious consumer and gift-giver while shopping for your loved ones.
At Savhera, we are dedicated to ethical and sustainable production while creating dignified employment for survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation.
A little research goes a long way. Check the brands’ ethical certifications and memberships to verify the legitimacy of their sustainability claims.
Or you can let others do the research for you. When you visit online markets like DoneGood, all of the brands on their platform have already been vetted so you can shop knowing that your purchases are helping people and the planet.
Some other brands we love include:
Calyan Wax Co - Calyan Wax Co produces natural soy candles that smell divine and give dignity back to survivors. 5% of their revenue goes back to their partner nonprofits. Each candle sold provides vital funding to give freedom, justice, and empowerment to survivors. They have raised over $72,000 to date!
We have proudly collaborated with Calyan Wax Co on our gift set that includes a bottle of our Sonia’s Shield blend, our Meditation book, a Savhera zippered pouch, a Calyan Evergreen + Eucalyptus Glass Tumbler Soy Candle, and a wick trimmer.
Tirza Designs - These beautiful, unique designs were created by and give back to survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation. Through this hand-crafted, ethically sourced jewelry, you can help survivors achieve education, economic independence, and healing.
CAUSEBOX - If you’re looking for several ethical gifts in one, CAUSEBOX is the perfect purchase. It is an annual subscription box that comes out with a new box each season. Each box tells a story. Each box contains over $200 worth of items for just $50. By subscribing to CAUSEBOX you help support independent artisans and survivors who product organic, all-natural goods. Savhera was featured in the summer CAUSEBOX and is proud to support a cause that empowers ethical artisans everywhere.
