Conscious shopping for Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, it's the perfect time to think about your Christmas shopping choices. If you are going to make purchases for friends, family or staff, consider how much more meaningful the gift would be if it had a story, if you knew where it came from, who made it, how it helped a community or the environment or made it possible for a child to go to school. Here are some great places you can go and visit for those meaningful conscious gifts.
