Holidays are meant for eating, drinking and being merry and what better way to celebrate the season than by giving a consumable gift that is delicious and sustainable.

We love a good nut butter and surely your loved ones will enjoy it too. Ground Up PDX sells a whole range of delicious nut butters that are ethically sourced. The company employs female workers who have faced adversity in the past. Supporting the brand indirectly supports these women and helps them overcome their struggles.
Consumable gifts can also be in the form of beauty products. Take Axiology for instance, which sells lipsticks that are free from toxins, palm oil and animal cruelty. Even the packaging is organic and recyclable!
