Looking for the perfect gift for the grads in your life this spring? We love what these five Fair Trade companies have to offer. We know your grads will, too!
We adore Pact’s ethical hoodies and wardrobe basics, and they just launched their linens line! Check out their ethical sheets for your grad who is off to college. You might even want to buy more than one set since the dorm laundry lines are loooong!
We can’t get enough of the dreamy-smelling soaps at B.A.R.E. They’re sustainably sourced, all natural, and provide economic development opportunities in India and Uganda. Don’t miss their candle collection, too, perfect for the graduate’s new office (or for the college-bound grad, to, ahem, freshen up their dorm room!)
This isn’t the first time we’ve sung Sudara’s praises, and it won’t be the last! Your grads will love a pair of Sudara’s signature Punjammies, beautifully designed loungewear made by women in India who have escaped the red light district and found living-wage employment with Sudara. They have some rockin’ t-shirts and leggings, too!
Oh man, are we crazy for a good pair of shoes! Not only are Allbirds insanely comfortable and great for casual and business settings, they’re good for the Earth, too! Made from natural and recycled materials, these ethical shoes are a gift your grad will be proud to wear around town.
We didn’t know that elephant dung was perfect for making paper, but we’re sure glad the folks at Mr. Ellie Pooh figured it out! Your loved one will cherish writing about their post-graduation adventures in an adorable Mr. Ellie Pooh journal, knowing that it creates sustainable work for Sri Lankan artisans and helps elephants be seen as an economic asset, rather than a threat.
Threads Worldwide (of course!)
Is your grad feeling anxious about what’s next and worried there won’t be enough jobs, time, friends, money? The Lleno bracelet from our Abundance Collection will remind her she’s living in an abundant world and there’s plenty of everything to go around. Are you worried your grad will work too hard and forget to take time for herself? Gift her the Honradez necklace from our Honor Collection as a gentle nudge to honor her own needs so she can expand her impact on the world. With 8 other Threads Family Value Collections to choose from, we know you’ll find a piece that says exactly what your graduate needs to hear (and she’ll look amazing to boot!).
