#SustainableSunday with Brightly Co...

Sunday, November 25, 2018

My dearest Green Bees, please allow me to introduce you to Brightly Co. This wonderful small shop is focused on bringing handmade, fair trade, and eco-friendly goods to the greater world.  They have teamed up with : Green Chic Life : favourite brands like GlobeIn, Matter Prints, Cause Roast, Adelante Shoe Co., and one of our new faves: Purse and Clutch.  

At Brightly, the mission is truly to bring quality goods to conscious-minded consumers around the world.  They only work with brands that verify that their products do not harm the environment and that their artisans are fairly-paid.  These partner brands are generally all affiliated with NGOs that give back to the artisans and their communities.  In addition to these positive initiatives, Brightly donates to support clean water initiatives around the world.  

They were kind enough to send me their Purse & Clutch larger cross body bag to replace a thrifted bag that recently fell apart after almost a decade of steady use.  I was thrilled to receive a handmade product that was ethically made in Ethiopia.  The quality is amazing, the size is just big enough for me to carry the essentials without needing to lug around a small suitcase, and I love the colour.  This bag will totally work with my wardrobe for every season, and for that, I'm grateful!  Less is better! 

If you happen to be in the market for some truly fabulous holiday gifts, I urge you to check out Brightly's daily deals that will continue through Cyber Monday tomorrow.  On Giving Tuesday, they will be running a "Give Your Discount Away for Good" deal where 10% of all purchase proceeds will be given to the Wildfire Relief Fund to help with fire relief initiatives in both Norther and Southern California.  They have also put together a rather fabulous sustainable gift guide to help you to give the most ethical gifts possible this holiday season!
