Gift Guide: Gifts with a Conscience

There’s a lot going on in the world right now, and giving gifts that give back brings important meaning and mindfulness to the season. Whether it’s a donation to an organization your loved one is passionate about or a gift from a socially conscious company, these thoughtful ideas offer so much more than what meets the eye.

Tegu: These fabulous magnetic blocks are the epitome of creative play, but they’re also doing wonders for the community in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, providing an education to the children whose families at the city trash dump. Not only that, but each block is made from sustainably harvested wood, and for every tree they harvest, they plant 983 more!

One World Play: Every time of one of these unpoppable, unbreakable, non-deflatable soccer balls is purchased, a second soccer ball is donated to a child in an impoverished community, ensuring that children of all means have the resources they deserve to play.

Thrive Market: think of it like the Costco of organic and natural foods. Their mission is to make healthy living easier and affordable to everyone, so for every membership purchased, they work with partners like Feeding America to provide a membership to a family in need. You can also choose to donate a percentage of every order to a featured cause or organization.
