Social distancing makes holiday shopping even more complicated this year, with last minute shopping sprees essentially out of the question. That’s why Heddels’ Last Minute Gift Guide 2020 is so important this year. We feature gift ideas from Amazon and East Dane, Amazon’s men’s fashion site, due to their shipping benefits. Shopping from Amazon has its own set of ethical dilemmas, so remember that you can always give the gift of a charitable donation for an altruistic, no shipping required gift.

Charitable Donation – Surfrider Foundation
Every year, literally millions of tons of plastic end up in our oceans and beaches. The effects of our single-use plastic products are having devastating effects on the environment which have led to the countless deaths of sea life not to mention dangerous food contamination. Surfrider Foundation focuses on the protection of beaches and oceans through cleanups, education, and advocacy campaigns which all go toward protecting these precious environments. For every dollar that’s donated, 84 cents goes directly toward their programs and campaigns, 13 cents goes toward generating future costs, and 3 cents goes toward administrative needs. Even if you’ve never surfed or have ever seen the ocean, 70% of the earth’s surface is covered in water, so it’s worth considering.
