Sabai Jai is a Thai expression of being content and happy in your heart, and it is also the name of an artisan crafted bag company. All of the bags are handmade by a group of traditional artisans, located in Northern Thailand. The materials are made with organic cotton that is dyed with plant-based dyes. Cotton naturally biodegrades, making it safer for the planet than synthetic materials. Sabai Jai has offered a 20% off coupon with code PRANARUN20. These beautiful, colorful bags would make a great bag to stuff with other smaller goodies, instead of using wasteful gift bags. You can ship from their website or get two day shipping on Amazon.

Planet Love Life helps clean the oceans of “ghost nets”, lost or left fishing gear, and turns them into bracelets. Ghost nets float in the ocean, fishing for no one, but still capturing and killing over 100,000 marine animals each year. Planet Love Life takes the ghost nets from the ocean and makes bracelets with them while raising awareness, and partnering with other like minded companies to help clean up beaches. Use code PRANARUN for 10% off. These fashionable, animal saving bracelets are fun to mix and match, and would make a great secret Santa gift.

All of these companies are great options for gifts this holiday season. PETA  has a list of common animal based clothing materials, why you shouldn’t use them, and companies that make cruelty-free clothing for your shopping needs! You can never go wrong with donating to a shelter, sanctuary, or rescue in someone’s name as a gift! It’s tax-deductible for you and makes the gift recipient feel all warm and fuzzy - and some animals get serious needed funding. Happy Holidays from PRANA Run!
