It’s that time of year again—the holidays. And whether you’re celebrating Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanza, or another celebration there is usually some exchange of gifts and tokens of appreciation.
Unfortunately, the holidays also bring an increase in plastic waste. And with an estimated 30% increase in plastic usage since the start of the pandemic this year, sustainability should be on everyone’s mind, but we know with the weird shopping frenzy, that is easier said than done. So, as we close out the year and look to emerge from the tragedy, I curate this sustainable holiday gift guide to help you shop around and protect the planet.
When it comes to finding the perfect last minute gift for a friend, colleague, or significant other, eco-friendly products are readily available, and less expensive than you might think. Don’t forget to use eco-friendly packaging or reuse your last years packaging materials. Happy gifting!
