7 Rad Gifts that Give Back and Make a Difference

As we approach the New Year, I have made the conscious choice to start living a more sustainable life. No Ghosts of Christmas past sponsored this post or anything…I just really want to leave the world a better place than I found it!

Surprisingly, it is super easy to find brands that want to do the same! So this holiday rather than focusing on a bunch of Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday must-haves, I wanted to share some of the really rad gifts out there that will make a difference!

100% of the proceeds from the COOLA X Cynthia Rowley Limited Edition Change Gift Set go towards the Ocean Conservancy!
