What is sustainable gifting?

Sustainable gifting is a trend that’s growing in popularity, and for good reason. By giving eco-friendly gifts, you’re not only doing your part to help the environment, you’re also making someone’s birthday or holiday season that much more special. Not to mention, eco-friendly gifts are often more affordable than traditional gifts – which means you can give them to everyone on your list with ease! Here are a few tips to help you get started with sustainable gifting: 

First, think about the recipient’s interests and values. What do they care about? What are their interests? Once you have a good idea of what they’re interested in, look for products or services that match those interests. For example, a cyclist might appreciate bike accessories, while someone who loves nature might appreciate eco-friendly birthday gift baskets. Next, think about the materials that the eco conscious gift is made of. Are the materials natural and sustainable? Are they recyclable? If the gift is something that needs to be kept fresh (like flowers), is it possible to store it in a sustainable way? 

Another option for you to consider a donation to an ecological volunteering organisation.
