This post contains some affiliate links, which means if you make a purchase, EcoCult receives a small percentage of the sale price. Some brands may have paid a small fee to be featured. We only recommend brands that we truly believe in. Support our editorial work by supporting them!

Just because Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, doesn’t mean the holiday cheer (and discounts!) are done. The holidays are the perfect time to support sustainable brands and artisan groups. Not only can you find the perfect responsibly-made gift for your loved ones, but you can also score some great discounts this time of year.

The fact is, not everyone has the means to purchase ethically-made products at full price, especially when they have multiple people to shop for around the holidays. The way we see it, holiday shopping doesn’t have to be excessive. It can be thoughtful, considered, and a way to introduce your loved ones to some of your favorite brands. Maybe you’ll even pick up something for yourself you’ve been eyeing for the past few months.

Here you will find ethical and sustainable brands that are offering discounts for the holiday season, including some special discounts just for EcoCult readers. As brands share more details with us, we’ll be adding to this list, so bookmark and circle back! Or, follow us on Instagram for fresh discounts.

Happy holidays!
