Our good friends at Circular&Co have been busy working with Good City Circle to create the 'Circular Christmas Gift Guide' - a brilliant celebration of brands who are offering festive gifts, crafted with both people and the planet in mind.
We're super proud to be a part of this brilliant gift guide and the assurance it brings you that by shopping with the brands included you can enjoy peace of mind that you are selecting gifts which work towards solving our global waste crisis. Christmas leads to millions of tons of rubbish being produced and discarded each year - by supporting the circular community you are helping waste to be transformed into products designed to live longer lives.
