Are there ways we can act more consciously as holiday consumers? ⁣ ⁣I recently caught up with Alison Czeczuga, the social impact and sustainability manager at @gaiaherbs. We discussed how supporting certified B Corps is an easy way to be a more conscious consumer. ⁣ ⁣Certified B Corps are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. This is a certification that Gaia Herbs has achieved. You can find a directory of B-Corps at bcorporation.net, or look for the logo on packaging – it's a B with a circle around it.⁣ ⁣We also discussed some ideas for gift giving:⁣* Give experiences rather than things (pictured here- a day out skiing with friends and family is the ultimate gift in my opinion)⁣* Give plant cuttings from succulents and cacti. ⁣* Make donations instead of gifts.⁣* Consider giving gently used items.⁣* Give less but make it higher quality. Consider the life cycle of the product – pay more for recyclability and repairability.⁣* Shop local, shop women led and POC owned brands⁣ ⁣What are your tips? Would love to hear!⁣ ⁣#sponsored #gaiaherbspartner #gaiaherbs #BCorporation #consciousconsumer
