As part of our commitment to being more inclusive and tackling the ethical elitism that’s increasingly dividing the conscious community, we’ve curated this list to ensure that marginalised communities, low-income households and budget-conscious individuals and families who are often priced out of the ‘ethical’ and ‘sustainability’ market get the same opportunity as higher income earners and the economically privileged to access stylish, responsibly-made goods and feel good about supporting a conscious business with their dollars.
This curated A-Z list of the ethical and sustainable businesses partaking in Christmas, Boxing Day sales and End of Year promotions is our attempt to address the growing inequalities created by neoliberalism. Feel free to share this with anyone you know counting their pennies thanks to COVID-19 and the demise of unions leading to job insecurity and wage theft by the business elites – and if you do need to take advantage of the discounts, please don’t forget to shop responsibly!
