Our 2022 Guide to Holiday Sales on Sustainable and Ethical Gifts Leave a comment

This post contains some affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase, EcoCult receives a small percentage of the sale price. Some brands may have paid a small fee to be featured. We only recommend brands that we truly believe in. Support our editorial work by supporting them!

We get the criticism of Black Friday sales, especially when it comes to impulse purchases of mass-produced items. But there’s an element of holiday sales campaigns that we totally support.

The fact is, not everyone has the means to purchase ethically-made products at full price, especially when they have multiple people to shop for around the holidays. The way we see it, holiday shopping doesn’t have to be excessive. It can be thoughtful, considered, and a way to introduce your loved ones to some of your favorite brands. Maybe you’ll even pick up something for yourself you’ve been eyeing for the past few months.

Here you will find ethical and sustainable brands that are offering discounts for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, plus Giving Tuesday opportunities. As more details come in, we’ll be adding to this list, so bookmark and circle back!

Happy holidays!
