Wrapping holiday presents for in traditional wrapping paper creates a lot of trash. Gifts wrapped in paper may look good sitting under your tree for a few days, but within seconds of being opened, the garbage bags quickly fill up. Gift wrapping is one of the most wasteful parts of the holiday season, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

SUSTAINABLE GIFTS

Here’s a few ideas:

1. FOOD OR DRINK GIFTS

This is definitely one of my favorites! How happy are you to receive a bottle of wine, coffee, your favorite food, home made cookies, jams or many other things that are so much better than the store-bought equivalent.

2. EXPERIENCES

Some of the best gifts are experiences such as a hiking, tickets to a concert, picnic, a weekend away, dinner. These gifts will remain as memories for years to come!

3. MAKE YOUR OWN GIFT

Home made gifts are a unique, meaningful, special, and sustainable idea. Can you sew, paint or bake?
