On this special day, we can gift them something meaningful and practical. Here you have seven gift ideas for all the eco dad´s out there.

As usual, you know we only recommend things that are respectful with our 3 S´s philosophy: Slow Fashion (meaning no mass production and exclusivity), Sustainable Fashion (using natural products that will biodegrade), Socially Responsible (because we believe fashion can be a force for good!).
