Same Thread's Ethical Shopping Picks

by Christine Sine

Ethical Shopping

Katie Metzger

Holiday shopping can be stressful. Long lines, crowded malls, and long lists can add to the stress. We have all felt the pressure of expectations, finances and time when trying to complete our shopping for friends and families. What if we could change the narrative of holiday shopping to one less driven by consumerism and stress to a narrative of inviting Jesus into our homes? What if we could invite Jesus into our homes through the act of giving gifts that give back to others and protect our environment?

In this spirit, I have compiled a list of shopping resources and brands that either directly benefit vulnerable populations around the world or help to protect our environment through sustainable production practices. I hope you take the time this holiday season to consider the impact of the gifts you give and the life that they can bring
