Shop ethically this Christmas by buying gifts that will have a real social impact.
The Social Enterprise UK 2017 Social Enterprise Gift Guide consists of ‘presents with purpose’ made by social enterprises, that have a social or environmental impact.
Gifts include chocolates created by young adults with autism, jewellery supporting women who have escaped exploitation and home wares providing opportunities for those suffering from mental illness.
Social Enterprise UK is running a competition to win one of the gifts by choosing your favourite and sharing the guide on social media with the hashtag #PresentsWithPurpose.
The Big Issue Shop stock products which create a ‘social echo’, by using trade to improve people’s lives and transform shopping into a force for good. There are over 700 products to choose from and at least 85% of the sales revenue goes to support the social enterprises and charities represented on the shop, as well as The Big Issue.
