Sustainable Brown Girl Holiday Gift Guide

Updated: Dec 21, 2020

As the holidays approach and many of us are thinking of purchasing gifts for our loved ones, here is a list of gift ideas from brands run by sustainable brown girls.

Factors taken in to consideration with the creation of the list include

- founder/creator/artist is a woman of color

- vegan, organic, recycled, handmade, fair trade, ethically sourced

- affordable ($50 or less)

- bonus: earth-friendly packaging

By no means is this list exhaustive of all sustainable WOC-owned businesses, but merely a starting point for a few gift ideas.
