There are several online shops that give artisans, makers and small businesses a chance to showcase their wares and sell all over the world. But is it really environmentally friendly to buy a heavy handmade blanket that comes from all the way across the world to your doorstep? When shopping on these sites, opt for the "local" filter that limits your searches to vendors who are within a certain range. This will prevent costly CO2-emitting shipping and keep your carbon footprint lower.
