Gifting Responsibly

Handmade Ceramics by Rise CeramicsWe’re in the month of December, and of course, that means it’s time for the annual gift-giving extravaganza of the holidays.

We’re all familiar with it — it typically starts with composing a long list of loved ones and ends with a surprising amount of gift wrap, filled with a million decisions in between. It’s possible to get overwhelmed, and sometimes amidst the rush, we need to choose what’s convenient and easy.

But when possible, we have to remember our purchasing can be some of our most powerful decisions and actions as consumers. This month can be an opportunity to thoughtfully support the people, places, and values you care for.

Today’s collection is from Abby of Rise Ceramics, an artist whose inspiration comes from her experiences with nature. As the current political and environmental climates continue to heat up, her pieces are a great reminder about what is important now and for the future.

Sharing gifts for the holidays can be incredibly rewarding, gathering with loved ones to express appreciation for one another. This holiday season, let’s also make the most of the opportunity to impact the rest of the year.
