Getting gifts that are unwanted can be such a bother! Not only does one struggle to figure out what to do with them but also their negative environment footprint (from wrapping, delivery, etc) can be very frustrating for the environmentally conscious. Also unwanted gifts find themselves in the trash and eventually clog up the landfills. But this can change if we become a lot more conscious and change our gifting habits.
Here are a few ideas for green gifting to your friends and family:
- A reusable gift bag.
Many people don’t realize that they’re actually throwing away a lot of plastic when they buy traditional, disposable gift bags. A reusable gift bag is a simple and affordable way to reduce your environmental impact.
- A home-made gift.
Homemade gifts are always unique, and they’re even more special when they’re environmentally friendly. This includes things like gift baskets made from eco-friendly ingredients, or gifts made from recycled materials.
- A gift card from a sustainable store.
Shopping from a local sustainable store is a great way to support the environment and get some great eco-friendly gifts at the same time.
- A Sacred Groves Cluster
If you are worried about declining biodiversity, then consider buying a Sacred Groves Cluster as your eco conscious gift. Each time you gift a Sacred Groves Cluster, a natural habitat gets protected forever.
