From linen clothing to bamboo cutlery, eco-friendly brands overwhelmingly market to and are purchased by women. While it may be the case that women still do much of the household spending, addressing climate change should be on all our minds. Caring for the earth and creating massive shifts in the status quo? That takes strength, protection & heroism, all traits we typically associate with masculinity. So whether you have a man in your life you’re shopping for or you’re looking for yourself! Here are some ethical brands and gifts via Australia that we think are doing right by the dudes in our lives.
