Gift a Local, Purposeful Present This Christmas

Did you know there are hundreds of local businesses in and around Brighton who are putting purpose before profit? These enterprises were setup with the aim to tackle challenges in our communities and our environment from reducing plastics in our ocean to improving our communities well-being through baking, from furniture made from reclaimed wood that would otherwise go to landfill to tools to teach the next generation to eat healthy, and everything in between.

Because of the diversity of ‘business for good’ in Sussex, you will be sure to find a gift idea for everyone on your Christmas shopping list. So what are you waiting for?

Give a gift this Christmas that gives back to your community or improves our environment and be the change you want to see in the world.
