During the Christmas holidays, it’s good to contemplate the meaning of gifts and giving. It's been said that “Giving liberates the soul of the giver.” And we agree! Shopping for gifts – at Christmas time and all year round – can be an expression of your beliefs or philosophy. Our guests – both pioneers in fair trade and socially responsible shopping – have created shopping venues for products that are better for the environment from companies that pay fair wages. We have also included links to a variety of free mobile apps for locating fair trade, socially responsible gifts. In this program you’ll hear about:

  • environmentally friendly gifts and where to get them
  • charitable giving, at Christmas or anytime, to help those in need
  • what "fair trade" products are and how you can shop for them
  • what it means to vote with your gift dollars all year
  • websites you need to know about – see our list below
