The end of every Christmas movie likes to remind us that the holidays aren’t actually about the extravagant light displays, the indulgent treats, or the number of gifts we receive — it’s simple kindness and the spirit of giving that really count. As overdone this sentiment is, it wouldn’t be a proper cliché if it didn’t hold a bit of truth.
Other than volunteering with or sending direct donations to nonprofits that make our world a better place, one way you can do your part this holiday season is to support businesses that are doing the same. If you’re gifting your loved ones, it’ll only benefit more parties if you buy from companies with a social and environmental conscience.
Giving back is woven into the business and daily operations of these 27 companies. When you buy a gift here, you’re also helping to plant a tree, improve livelihoods in underserved areas, save an animal, and many more charitable initiatives.
Learn more about how the following brands give back all year long.
