What Is Sustainable Gifting?
Sustainable gifting goes beyond just giving a present. It focuses on selecting gifts that have a minimal impact on the environment and contribute to a more sustainable future. By choosing sustainable gifts, you demonstrate your commitment to ethical consumption and the well-being of our planet. These gifts should be made using eco-friendly materials, support fair trade practices, promote local artisans, or contribute to social causes. It’s also becoming increasingly common to consider the type of business you are buying from, how do they treat their employees, do they have values that are aligned with yours and the world you want to live in?
The Importance of Low Plastic Gifting
In today's world, where plastic waste poses a significant threat to our ecosystems, low plastic gifting is increasingly important. Traditional gift options often come with excessive packaging and plastic components that end up in landfills or oceans, contributing to pollution and harming wildlife. By opting for low plastic gifts, we can minimise our ecological footprint and make a positive impact on the planet.
