Green Gifts: Easy Eco-Friendly Ideas.
We all want to do the right thing for our planet. Especially when it comes to giving gifts.
Here are 3 ways to help can lessen the impact of gift-giving on the environment this holiday season.
Take your own canvas bag or reused shopping bags when you head out to secure that perfect gift. Look for gifts that use the least amount of packaging.
Remember that the best gifts come from the heart - not necessarily the department store.
If you do choose to buy something new, look for gift items made from recycled materials, or those that can be recycled or reused.
A few Earth-friendly gift ideas:
your significant other, consider giving a weekend getaway to a
bed-and-breakfast (you can go, too) or a bike-riding excursion.
For kids, consider creating a certificate for excursions such as a whale-watching or a camping trip.
