LETTER FROM OUR CEO Hi all, First, I want to say thank you so much for supporting both EarthHero and every one of the ethical, sustainable, world-changing brands on our site. Every one of your comments, likes, emails, chats, and orders is so meaningful to this community. Thank you. I also want to discuss this upcoming holiday season with you, candidly. You may or may not have heard, but the global supply chain system is a mess. From factory closures still ongoing in some parts of the world due to COVID to shipping port delays, to container shortages, and labor shortages everywhere, including trucking – a lot of things are simply taking longer to arrive. In some cases, a lot longer. Does this have an impact on EarthHero’s 250 brands? In some cases, yes. In some cases, not at all. Many of our brands source their materials and ingredients locally, which mitigates some of these supply chain issues. We're working very closely with our brands in an effort to have all our products available in time and throughout the holidays. However, in some cases, we are expecting delays. Why? Because EarthHero and our manufacturers cannot control many parts of the supply chain. What can you do about all of this? So, this year I really do encourage you to do your shopping early – whether it’s with EarthHero (hope so!) or elsewhere. To ensure your gifts arrive in time, and to get the best selection of products without the stress of shipping delays, try to order as early as possible. To help encourage you, we’ll provide our best ever Green Friday Deal early, on Nov 15th. Now back to the main point. Thank you for being awesome. Your support is creating a direct positive impact on the environment and its people. Your orders help support our strong and passionate team of visionaries, on a quest to bring you the most wonderful sustainable shopping experience, ever! You da best!

PRE-SHOPPING SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST OP

NG

1. Will this gift actually be used? One of the most wasteful things about the holidays is overconsumption. Choose gifts that your loved ones will treasure and use often rather than giving something just to give something.

2. What is the gift made of? Is it recycled, compostable or biodegradable, organic, or renewable? Check out the materials and ingredients of your gift before purchasing and make sure it’s made sustainably.

www.earthhero.com

3. How long will the gift last? Avoid getting gifts that will break after a year of use. Instead, prioritize quality over quantity! Also, don’t forget to check out the product’s end of life! This impacts your gift’s true environmental impact.

4. What are the company’s values? One of EarthHero’s biggest priorities for choosing brands is company responsibility. This includes the production of their products, the treatment of their workers, and the charities or give-back programs they have. Look for companies that align with your values and do more than just make stuff!

5. Shop Early

The global supply chain is backed up and causing massive delays across the globe. Start your holiday shopping early to have a low-stress holiday season!

PRE-WRAPPING SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST Americans use 4.6 million pounds of wrapping paper every year, of which 2.3 million pounds end up in a landfill. At EarthHero, we're motivated to combat this issue, and are happy to provide you with ideas for creating less waste!

1. Wrap With What You Have! The most sustainable thing to do is reuse! Use what you have first before going to buy more. Newspaper and patchwork wrapping (using multiple scrap patterns) is cute! You can also use old pillowcases and scarves.

2. Get Recycled and Reusable Wrapping Paper

www.e Earthh Heerroo..ccoom m

If you don’t have anything to wrap with, buy eco-friendly wrapping paper! We love our 100% recyclable paper and reusable wrapping cloths the best!

3. Use an Alternative to Tape Most conventional tape is made out of microplastics that cannot be recycled. Instead, opt for using natural ribbon or twine to seal the edges of your gifts! Plus, it’s also a lot easier to open.

4. Make Stamps From Potatoes! A fun DIY project is making your own stamps to decorate craft wrapping paper! All it takes is half a potato, some ecofriendly paint, and a knife to cut out the design, and BAM! You have an amazing stamp that makes your gift more personalized and can be composted.

5. Save Everything for Next Year! Make sure to save as much paper and as many decorations as you can so you don’t have to buy more next year. It can reduce a ton of waste and save you money!

PRE-DECORATING SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST

1. DIY or Buy Second-Hand First!

We have so much stuff on our planet it’s crazy! Before purchasing any new decorations, see what you have first, then DIY what you can and buy second-hand. Maybe even throw a decoration swap party with your friends!

2. Use Natural Decoration!

www.earthhero.com

A lot of great decorations like pinecones, plants, dried oranges, popcorn, and cinnamon sticks can be composted after use. They are a great alternative to conventional decorations, free, and smell great! Just make sure everything is safe and out of reach if you have a fur baby!

3. Energy-Efficient Lighting

Try to find holiday lights secondhand or borrow from a

friend to be ultra sustainable! If you are buying lights, use energy-efficient LED lighting! You can also set a timer or turn the lights off when you’re sleeping or not in use to save energy and money. Another way to save money and be safe is to fully unplug them when not in use!

4. Choose Your Tree Wisely Natural trees are amazing because they are 100% compostable and can be used for firewood or DIY decorating projects. They can also be recycled in a lot of curbside recycling programs. However, if you are unable to compost or recycle your live tree, a reusable plastic tree (that you can get secondhand!) would be a great sustainable alternative!

5. Only Get What You Want to Keep It might seem simple, but only get what you will want next year! Try not to buy things that will go out of style or that you will lose interest in quickly. Reuse, reuse, reuse!

PRE-PARTY SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST G 1. Use Online Invitations

Paper-free invitations are not only better for the environment, but they're cheaper too! There are websites online that will help you build a template so your invitation is super cute and sustainable.

2. Say No To Plastics

www.e Earthh Heerroo..ccoom m

Have your guests bring their own cups, and use compostable or reusable dinnerware! Although the plastic alternatives to these are cheap and easy, they’re going to be on our Earth for a lot longer than they’re being used.

3. Second-Hand Gift Exchange

Challenge everyone to find gifts second-hand! It’s

like a scavenger hunt but sustainable! Plus, it shows people that shopping second-hand doesn’t mean you’re losing quality.

4. Plan Food Carefully

Make sure to have a count of the number of people to avoid food waste. Also, try to buy food in bulk or in recyclable packaging rather than the big plastic party trays. Potlucks are super fun too!

5. Make Your Own Decorations I f y o u o r a f r i e n d a r e t a l e n t e d a t c r a f t i n g , c h a l l e n g e

yourself and DIY all your decorations! If not, you can find thousands of templates and how-to videos online that can be easier. If you do buy decorations, choose ones that can be reused for many years to come, and are not wrapped in plastic at the store.

SHIPPING SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST EARTHHERO

OTHER RETAILERS

CARBON NEUTRAL CERTIFIED EarthHero has been Carbon Neutral since 2017 but decided it was time to do more. As of November 2021, we are officially Climate Neutral Certified! That means we calculated all our total 2020 carbon emissions, and purchased carbon credits that go towards climate change solutions. We plan to maintain climate neutrality through annual assessment and reevaluation!

MINIMAL PACKAGING

CARBON EMISSIONS Did you know that shipping by plane emits 12 times the amount of carbon as shipping by boat, train, or truck? Or that a single cotton t-shirt generates over 4 kg of carbon? Other retailers don't pay attention to these details, and as a result, emit tons of greenhouse gases every year!

WASTEFUL PACKAGING

At EarthHero, all of our packages are shipped with as little waste as possible. We use paper tape, boxes made with recycled content, mailers, and fill paper – plus a lot of our packaging is compostable or recyclable. We also reuse boxes our brands send us! Learn more about our shipping practices here!

FULL TRANSPARENCY EarthHero wants our customers to be fully informed when they are purchasing products. We ensure this by being completely transparent about our brands’ sustainability, our total footprint, and obtaining third-party certifications. You can check out all of this under the Footprint tab on our website!

GIVE BACK PROGRAMS

Lots of retailers use single-use plastics for packaging such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts. They also buy large boxes in bulk to cut costs, instead of buying appropriately sized boxes. These lead to excess waste and more single-use plastics ending up in a landfill.

NO THIRD-PARTY CERTIFICATIONS A company can claim sustainability all it wants, but unless it’s being certified by a third party, it’s hard to trust it! Third-party certifications ensure an unbiased analysis is being conducted on the company’s true sustainability. Lots of companies like to use words like “sustainable” and “eco-friendly” without taking the steps to become it.

NO GIVING PROGRAMS

Give back programs are something we look for in our brands, but we have some too! EarthHero is a part of 1% For the Planet, which gives 1% of our sales to sustainable initiatives and organizations. We also donate towards reforestation and renewable energy projects!

A lot of retailers don’t invest their income into different charities or initiatives. On the other hand, EarthHero prioritizes community engagement and responsibility. At EarthHero, we have found that contributing to social and environmental causes we care about doesn't cost much, but has a massive impact.

QUESTIONABLE QUALITY

HIGH QUALITY GUARANTEED At EarthHero, we want to give our customers products that will last them a lifetime. This means ensuring that every product we put on our site is of the highest quality. We also break down everything from what it’s made of to the end of life for each item. All you have to do is scroll down when looking at the details of a product.

It is common to see very low-quality items for really cheap on some retailer websites. They make it so the item will last just long enough that you’ll repurchase it again and again. There are also times that you think the item is high quality, but it ends up being poorly made. This guessing game is especially common around the holiday season.

ONE-PAGE SUSTAINABLE HOLIDAY CHECKLIST

SHOPPING Did you think about how the gift will be received before purchasing? How about looking at the item’s end of life? If so, congrats! You thought thoroughly before purchasing, which makes you a conscious consumer!

WRAPPPING What are you using to wrap your gifts this year? Are you using sustainable and reusable materials like scarves or newspaper, or making your own wrap? If so, you're doing the right thing. Another alternative is no wrapping! Either way, looks like you're on the right path to an eco-friendly gifting season.

DECORATING What do your decorations look like this year? Are you being conscious of your light usage, or where your decorations come from? If so, conscious consumer alert! Sustainability doesn’t look one specific way. You can still have the decorations you want while still being eco-friendly.

HOLIDAY PARTY Did you do something for your holiday party that helped reduce your trash? If so, look at you go! Not only are you making choices that lead to change in your life, but you’re setting an example for all your friends and family as well!

EARTHHERO PURCHASE Although we aren’t the only place to purchase holiday gifts from this year… did you buy a gift from EarthHero? If so, thank you for your support! EarthHero really strives to make sustainability simple, especially during the holiday season. It’s the main reason we make this gift guide every year!

You’ve done it! You’ve completed all the checklists, and are now ready to continue on your sustainable journey this holiday season! Congratulations! If you only got one or two this year, that’s okay too! Any change is a good change, big or small.
