the great holyday classics
redesigned for living an ethical Christmas
Do you want to live and give an ethical Christmas without giving up the traditions and the classic taste of the Holidays? Do you want to make your friends happy, even the one who starts the countdown for December 25th already on August 15th, and making our planet happy at the same time? Do you want to make an eco-friendly gift that can be appreciated by every Christmas lover?
In our board, you will find lots of ideas to make Christmas sustainable - but also sparkling! - for young and old.
Red is undoubtedly the star of our selection of articles to celebrate an ethical Christmas up to the finest tradition: a color that we all instinctively associate with Christmas and that, combined with warm fabrics and Nordic decorations, releases the holyday spirit at first glance. The red color is combined with other characteristic elements of the festive season: gold warm tones, reindeer and snowflakes, firs and candy canes. Everything declined on clothing and accessories for her and for him, from 0 to 99 years: what unites all these ideas is in fact the unconditional love for Christmas and its traditions, and the will to celebrate them in an ethical key, in respect of nature, its resources and other beings, human or otherwise, that inhabit the planet Earth.
If our proposals’ colors and decorations are those typical of the Holiday season, taking a look to the label is enough to realize that this Christmas will be traditional, but it will also be an ethical Christmas.
The warm wool of sweaters, hats and gloves is organic, as is the cotton of baby’s suits, pajamas, t-shirts and many other proposed clothing items. Alongside natural fabrics, we also find recycled materials that can often be a pleasant discovery for those approaching the world of ethical shopping for the first time: in addition to being sustainable, in fact, fabrics such as those coming from plastic or recycled tires, are comfortable to wear and pleasant to the touch, even if they come from raw materials that would never transmit these sensations. Try it for yourself!
A proposal for an extremely classic and ethical Christmas?
The women’s sweater by Armedangels, a German brand that only uses certified sustainable materials: it is red, with a deliberately comfortable and oversized fit and, of course, it is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
Do you want to experiment with something less conventional?
The hat by Mahla Clothing is a classic cap, but the features that make it truly unique are numerous. To begin with, it is made entirely from cutting leftovers of the clothing industry, and is in bright red velvet, which cannot fail to attract attention. Furthermore, it is entirely hand-made in Estonia, so that each piece is truly unique and inimitable. Finally, to avoid any possible waste, it is made to order, so as to avoid unsold pieces and waste of resources. Until December, it is available in pre-order on weecos.com, with a discount for those who will place the order in advance! If on your list for an ethical Christmas there is the right person for this unique piece, we advise you not to miss it!
Next to clothing and accessories, among our proposals for ethical Christmas there are also some jewels, essential for those who want to bet on a great classic.
A gift of jewelry, in fact, is never a wrong choice, especially if you are looking for a gift for your girlfriend, your mother or for a dear friend. The jewels that we offer you, besides being beautiful, are perfect gifts for those who want to live an ethical Christmas.
For example, you can choose the earrings by Dear Survivor, a US brand specialized in jewelry, attentive not only to environmental sustainability but also to social aspects: the brand has always donated part of its revenues to charity and, in recent months, it has started a collaboration with the Refugee Artisan Initiative, which offers employment opportunities to women with refugee status in the US. The earrings included in our selection are made of 14-carat gold combined with an unusual – and eco-friendly – material such as Piñatex, a natural leather based on cellulose fibers extracted from pineapple leaves.
Instead, if you prefer something more discreet, starting from the dimensions, the right choice could be these little earrings in the shape of a deer produced by Eco925, a brand that mainly uses recycled silver or, when it is not possible, researches new Fairtrade certified materials. The subject chosen for this particular model makes it a gift that will surely be appreciated, in this ethical Christmas, by lovers of Christmas, winter and Nordic atmospheres. The small dimensions and the discreet design make these earrings a gift really suitable for everyone, from young women to middle-aged ladies who love Christmas holidays.
Do you want to experience a 360-degree ethical Christmas?
Among our proposals there are gift ideas that are good not only for our planet, reducing the environmental impact of their entire production process, but also to the communities that have given life to them. This is the case, for example, of the gold clutch by Bush Princess: elegant and refined, it is made in Kenya respecting the environment and supporting local communities.
Animal lovers can live an ethical Christmas as well. The sweatshirt by Wholesome Culture is made in WRAP certified plants (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) and 10% of the profits are donated to environmental organizations and to protect animals. We propose them to you in this version, with many nice dogs wishing “Merry Woofmas”, but there are also different ones, for example for those who are part of the “cats team”!
During the Holidays you will leave for a tropical paradise or – even more lucky! – do you live there permanently? Don’t give up bringing the Holidays spirit and colors with you! For example, you can choose the red flip-flops by Ecoalf, made from recycled old tires.
Or, you can opt for the t-shirt by Run & Feel: with short sleeves, in fresh fabrics like organic cotton or bamboo, it allows you to show off the print of a reindeer even under the beach umbrella!
As you could see, with our selection you can really make a pleasing gift to every festive season lover, giving him at the same time an ethical Christmas.
An ethical Christmas is an intangible gift, but it can really make a difference! We too, looking for the proposals that could do for you, found our favorite products that, perhaps, will end up under our Christmas trees.
The classic style of Christmas is perfect for all children’s clothing and accessories: among the many options selected, we fell in love with this pajamas by Burt’s Bees Baby, made from GOTS certified organic cotton. The plus of this proposal? You can choose the pajamas for the whole family to spend a truly magical Christmas night! Choosing our favorite children gift was really difficult!
We must admit that we were also conquered by the reindeer romper by Kit Clothing and from the blanket with a polar bear by Fabliek: both are made from 100% organic cotton and the sweet animal prints will surely win the hearts of all new mothers and new dads (and also their puppies!).
Thinking of an ethical Christmas gift for the friend who wants to celebrate the tradition without falling into the excess of kitsch, our preferred option is the sweatshirt with fir trees by Armedangels: made of GOTS certified organic cotton and available in two colors, it celebrates in a simple and discreet way one of the most loved Christmas symbols.
And finally, are you looking for a sustainable and ethical way to wait for Santa Claus? We have what’s right for you: this delicious reindeer-shaped Christmas stocking, by Fabelab is made in organic cotton and is reusable year after year!
