A Gift Guide for Conscious Consumers

In a year where it’s felt like so much is beyond our control, you can still decide where to invest your holiday gift budget. We love the idea of purchasing gifts from conscious brands who are looking to leave a positive mark on the world.

In a year where it’s felt like so much is beyond our control, you can still decide where to invest your holiday gift budget. We love the idea of purchasing gifts from conscious brands who are looking to leave a positive mark on the world.

As a company that coaches entrepreneurs on how to grow meaningful businesses, we’ve seen some truly incredible companies who are making a difference. We wanted to highlight two Succeed On Purpose business graduates who are making the world a better place.

Our first gift guide item comes from Solutions.™, a Public Benefit Corporation who offers handmade goods while supporting those in need through their A Day’s Work™ low-barrier work program.  

The remaining gift guide items come from conscious businesses on the Mindful Market platform. Mindful Market is a marketplace for socially responsible small businesses committed to making the world a better place.
