All over the world, people are getting ready to celebrate Christmas. For most, one of the most anticipated highlights is the gift giving part. It isn’t only the children who are excited to receive gifts from their loved ones. I, however, sit on the other side of the fence. What excites me most about the month is the fact that I get to go Christmas shopping! Just to put a little twist to this whole gift giving business and to help propagate a cause, here are a few eco-friendly suggestions!
1. If you’re the type of person who loves giving flowers, why not try and give an eco-bouquet? I know it sounds unromantic but you might be surprised! You can choose organically from roses to wreaths at organicbouquet.com Everything from the vase to the paper is 100% recycled!
2. Footwear also comes in green these days. For someone who is a shoe fanatic, having an eco-friendly pair will surely top the collection. These shoes are especially designed to minimize environmental damage. While there are plenty of eco-friendly pairs to go around (some of them are vegan-friendly), you can check some of them out here.
3. Another great idea is to plant a tree in honor of someone’s name. According to a number of different blogs out there, companies are switching to this mode of gift-giving for their clients. Not only does this help the environment, it also shows what values a company or organization holds. That’s a chance to earn few extra points right there!
There are a lot more gift goodies out there but it’s the green ones that truly make a difference. If you want your gift to be memorable, I suggest you start looking for more green ideas!
