Give the Gift of GWL Friendship!

This year, we’re excited to be launching our Glasgow Women’s Library Gift Friendships, a chance to give a lucky person in your life an ethical change-making gift this Christmas!

Ethical Gift Ideas from Glasgow Women’s Library

December is just around the corner and with this month comes the season of giving. We believe that giving gifts for Christmas, or at any other time of the year, shouldn’t come at the expense of our planet or people. If you’re looking gifts that are ethical and environmentally friendly, look no further than the following suggestions from Glasgow Women’s Library.
