For the last couple of years we have been putting together an ethical, co-op shopping guide for the holidays. Below is this year’s awesome co-op holiday gifts list for those who want inject a little justice into their festivities.
Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t also give a shout out to our own Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives, or our new fast-paced card game Loud & Proud! And there is so much more in our store, along with some great holiday deals.
