Holiday Shopping: The Ethical Way

Posted on December 09, 2017 by Ashleigh Payne | 0 comments

The holiday season is finally here and Passion Lilie is ready to spread good cheer! Every time the season of giving rolls around, many people end up spending money with companies that provide their workers with unfair wages, work conditions and even some that test on animals. Not only does this create a mediocre holiday experience for those facing this adversity, but it also goes against and misrepresents the holiday spirit everyone loves and adores. This year let's honor the gift of giving by doing so, ethically. We've created a list of items that are perfect for holiday gifting, from brands that provide ethical, eco-friendly and/or fair trade products! Happy Holidays everyone! 


 1. Spiced Pumpkin Soy Candle by P.F. Candle Company

This item is the most ideal gift of the holiday seasonCandles are not only a staple item when it comes to gift giving, but Spiced Pumpkin is also the holy grail of all holiday fragrances. P.F. Candle Company makes these soy-based candles, to avoid the toxicity of candles made with paraffins, and to further provide a cleaner and longer burn. In addition, the jar can be reused as well, so it's not just ethical, but also eco-friendly! Head to to check out more fragrances and the other ethical home goods they have to offer as well.
