All I Want for Christmas are Sustainable Brands

Girl + Environment

Friends, we only have a few more days before Christmas. And while I’m sure we’re all experiencing the holiday rush between trying to get everything done before the new year and trying to find the perfect gift for a loved one, we want to take a moment to take a step back from all the hustle and bustle.

In fact, we want to challenge you to try out conscious gift gifting, which focuses on meaningful spending that supports causes you and your loved ones care about– like the environment and the people in our environments.

Oftentimes, so much of the “stuff” we spend tons of money on, end up in the trash and then end up in landfills, that end up in our communities– polluting our communities.

But there is a better option. There are brands out there that are trying to make a difference. Brands that are using recycled materials, producing biodegradable products, and even pouring resources back into communities. We wanted to use this blog post to share about some of those amazing brands. Check them out!


KADA is the clothing brand working to evolve how fashion gets made. From reducing the number of seams on each garment to sourcing eco-conscious fabrics, they’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to keep waste to a minimum while ensuring that every piece is built to last. From sustainable silhouettes and forward thinking fabric to responsible manufacturing and their commitment to water conservation, this woman-led brand is working to lower their carbon footprint.


AcARRE™ is a natural prestige brand of multi-use bioactive beauty products for the beauty minimalist to age beautifully, based on modernized African and Pacific Islander ancestry elements delivering multi-level benefits, helping to re-balance the microbiome, for healthy scalp and skin.
