Ethical Xmas?

Posted December 14th, 2009 by Birmingham Conservation Trust with No Comments

If you like to support charity when buying Christmas gifts here are some ideas: For starters every time you use this we get a donation with each thing you buy. (Have a look here for a full list of traders and the percentage they pass on to us – you don’t pay any more and in some cases we get up to £120!).

But the shop includes other charities. For example, use this link:

Oxfam_s Online Shop – Great value, guilt-free shopping and gifts-1to shop at  Oxfam and we will get 10% of what you spend.  There’s plenty to choose from, including Fairtrade chocolates,  jewellery, a wide range of books, clothes and the Oxfam Unwrapped gifts which directly support families in developing countries.

Many of you will be familiar with the National Trust, they are close partners of ours.  We restored the Back to Backs which they then took over as one of the city’s, indeed the country’s most fascinating museums.

National Trust | Become a memberMembership to the National Trust makes a great gift and if you use this link (or click on the image) then we also get a a proportion of what you spend for encouraging you to do just that!  At the moment they even include a pair of binoculars and give you 12 months membership for the price of 9. Please use this link:

Other traders supporting us supporting us who sell goods which you might fit under the ethical banner include Ethical Superstore.   However there are many more including some the biggest names and online reatilers you might use all the time.  Have a good browse through this link.
