The climate crisis needs you to be more sustainable, and this local Denver company can help
[Denver, CO, October, 2021] A local pioneer in curating eco-friendly and sustainable everyday products, The Conscious Merchant can supply many types of gifts this holiday season to fulfill your loved ones’ wishlists.
Instead of choosing wasteful and potentially toxic gifts this holiday season, consider choosing more sustainable, eco-friendly options.The Conscious Merchant offers DIY kits, personal care products, kitchen products, and more made from responsibly sourced materials using safer chemicals.
“The Conscious Merchant was designed to be a place where you can shop with ease to make eco-living easier. Our mantra of progress not perfection allows individuals of all walks of life to make small changes for lasting impact for our health and environment.” – Kara Armstrong, Founder and Owner, The Conscious Merchant.
With the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change saying that we only have until 2030 to save the global environment, it’s more important than ever to make eco-conscious choices and offset our carbon footprint.
With the holiday season around the corner, many are gearing up to do their holiday shopping and to consume more than they do during the entire rest of the year. Statistics show that 18% of the entire year’s USPS deliveries happen between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, mostly due to the uptick in shopping done for gift-giving. Every holiday season, we use at least 8 thousand tons of wrapping paper alone.
Choosing local, eco-friendly gifts this holiday season can be a big step in avoiding all this and making better choices that reduce single use plastic production and pollution. By changing your shopping habits during the most wasteful time of the year, you are contributing to a better future that ensures there will be many happy holiday seasons for your children and future generations to come.
Additionally, eco-friendly options can be better for your health. Many common products, especially cleaning and skincare products, contain a variety of ingredients the average consumer is not familiar with. These ingredients may be harmful or toxic, but the products make it difficult for consumers to know what’s in them.The Conscious Merchant works hard to research ingredients and only carries products with safer ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally exposing yourself to unknown materials. Being sustainable doesn’t just stop at environmental benefits, it extends to what we do with our bodies. By using clean products, we are nurturing the health of the Earth and ourselves.
Fortunately, there are options if you want to choose more eco-friendly products. The Conscious Merchant offers a variety of goods you can buy as gifts this holiday season, including reusable Furoshiki wrapping.
For those who want to upgrade their soap and cleaning supplies, there is the Reduce-Refill bundle that offers dish soap, hand soap, laundry powder, and a dish brush in both family and single-person sizes.
