Goodsmiths was born out of a simple idea: what if the things we bought also left a positive impact on our communities and our environment?
The Goodsmiths website makes the minefield of ethical consumerism a little less stressful by bringing together businesses that provide products and services with a clean conscience. Simple.
It’s a year round enterprise that aims to empower shoppers to make good decisions and support businesses that are making a go of making a difference. It really comes into its own over Christmas. Last December Australians spent a whopping $25.6 billion shopping. Imagine if just a fraction more of those Christmas dollars were spent at sustainable and ethical shops and restaurants.
We tend to underestimate the impact of conscientious buying, but change doesn’t have to be difficult. Goodsmiths co-founder Clifford Moss says ‘Christmas is the easiest time to do this because we’re already poised to buy presents and celebrate the festive period.’
Our friends at Goodsmiths are giving you the opportunity to WIN a hamper sampling a range of goodies from planet and people friendly businesses.
