"Made in" Collections
Who knew there were still so many terrific products that make great gifts that are Made in USA? They're hard to find at most retailers, but we have them here. The USA ranks in the top 10 in SweetScore's Country rankings for protection of the environment and human rights.
There are a lot of terrific gift choices that are made in Europe and the UK. The countries represented in this collection rank at or near the top in SweetScore's Country rankings for leadership on protection of the environment and human rights, including protection of freedom of the press, women's equality and LGTBQ equality.
Gifts by Gift Type
While so many product makers have move production out of democracies and into countries that many would call fascist, there are a surprising number of Kitchen and Entertaining Gifts still made in countries and by companies that respect and protect freedom of speech and other fundamental human rights. Buying gifts in this and other collections on SweetScore rewards Companies demonstrating moral leadership - and a prioritization of more than corporate profits.

I love this collection as Norway is one of the most progressive countries in the world. Whether it's women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, gun control, or helping the environment, Norway has always been a leader in doing what is right.
I don’t know about you, but the men in my life are the hardest people to shop for. They never seem to want or need very much but I love them and want to be able to get them an awesome gift on his day that I can feel good about buying for him!
These are some of my favorite ethical shopping gift ideas for the men in your life.
Who doesn’t enjoy feeling rested and beautiful? We have all had those long days or weeks where we feel and possibly look like zombies, yikes! So, every so often I like to pick myself up by glamming up my day or night! These are some of the products that help me achieve my best life!
Weddings are such a special occasion for not only the bride and groom but also the guests - and UK weddings have such style and joy.
I hope this list gives you some great ideas for an outfit or a great wedding gift!
Here's an -- admittedly tongue-in-cheek -- definitive collection of must haves for your next march from StyleMaker Pat Palleschi. Includes the pink yarn and crochet needles you'll need to make your pussyhat!

SweetScore Recommends - Ethical Company Reviews
No company is perfect and most companies do everything they can to suppress that fact, while New Belgium is the first to admit what they’re doing wrong in big bold red letters (seriously) -- along with how they want to fix it.
Their transparency on all levels of their business is unparalleled to any other I assessed, as even a quick look at their Sustainability report on their website attests.
They also deserve recognition for:
-- leading in all of the places that green brewers can;
-- being female inclusive (if not centric) from their beginning;
-- promoting positive communities centered around the needs of the people in them -- with biking as an organizational structure for that.
In this review, Chirs names a Best Overall and a Best Beer Company for Environmental Protection, Women's Equality, LGBTQ + Equality, Gun Control and Promotion of a Just and Civil Society.
Turns out that the people in Norway are just as lovely as its fjords. Like many of its Scandinavian neighbors, Norway has absolutely remarkable numbers on everything from Environmental Protection to Women's Rights. Norwegians have strived to build a society in which everyone is protected and cared for, and that's been reflected in the remarkable freedoms all of their citizens enjoy.
