The Gift Of Giving


We had such a great time taking the Ethical Boutique and Conscious Coffee to the Ethical Festive Market and came away having met so many inspiring organisations that we wanted to share with you in case you’re yet to discover them! Check them out below in the overview made by Volunteer Sara’s Photobox – there’s everything from gorgeous natural skincare, to products made from recycled bicycle parts!

From the support we get at the Ethical Boutique, we know how much consideration is out there when it comes to ethical shopping. Whilst this can be harder over Christmas, it feels more people than ever are reflecting on their Christmas spending habits this year, and making extra efforts to reduce waste and give mindfully. By shopping with the organisations above, you can support local independent businesses, be kinder to the planet and make a difference to projects around the world.

Green Squirrel, our neighbours at Railway Gardens, have also put together this fab guide which is packed full of top tips for planet-minded giving this Christmas…

The Green Squirrel Guide to Greener Gifting (try saying that after a glass of mulled wine!)

Thank you to Hub Africa Cymru for organising such a joyful, engaging event and to our fantastic team of volunteers who helped us run the SAFE stalls.

Our Ethical Boutique will be open until 2pm on Christmas Eve. We also have gift vouchers and donation gift certificates available!

Happy Christmas / Nadolig Llawen from all of us at SAFE! xx
