Stuck for inspiration for your ethically minded fella this Christmas?
In this most unusual of Christmas’s with tiers (and probably a few tears) we reckon that it’s got to be all about comfort, sustainable-style!
So get inspired with this collection of sustainable and ethically made bamboo socks, vegan shoes, slippers crafted from recycled bottles, belts made from reclaimed fire hoses, solar knit jumpers, organic cotton t-shirts, coats and jackets, and most importantly, loungewear.
Hugs and love from the Baobab bunch.
