So you want to buy holiday gifts without feeling like a bad person. Here are some tips.
Buy fair trade.
Fair trade certified items are made by workers who are paid fair wages. That means you aren't buying gifts at the expense of exploited workers.
Make a donation in someone's name.
Choose a charity based on that person's interests. It's personal and way more thoughtful than a gift card.
Ditch the wrapping paper.
Americans waste about 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags annually. Try using old newspapers, magazines or maps instead.
