Conscious gift giving is an act of pure love. It’s not something you have to do but something you want to do! With so many responsible companies giving back to the community and Earth, there is no reason not to invest in gifts for loved ones if you can afford it. Here are five socially responsible companies worthy of investing in during the season of giving and real joy. Ranging from modest to decadent, all items are high quality, earth friendly, and made with love.

For the beloved Traveler on your list, Rust & Fray bags are an earth friendly, sustainable total win. All Rust and Fray bags are upcycled and hand crafted. The Nomad, featured here, is made of recycled leather and canvas. The company’s goal is “to provide textile workers with the opportunity to earn fair wages and come together to stand up against the destructive fast-fashion industry.”

For the yogi or athlete, LVR Fashion creates lovely organic cotton active wear in Los Angeles, California. All styles are flattering and super comfy. From lounge pants to tanks, LVR has got you covered in ethical, sustainable style. LVR was founded in 2010 by Eric Clarke, an entrepreneur with a passion for animal rescue, who had the vision of creating high quality, affordable, earth-friendly products that would benefit the community - both locally and globally. LVR partners with ARCAS wildlife rescue center in Guatemala to donate a portion of their revenues to aid in wild animal rescue, rehabilitation and release.
