Stressing for the right gift? Pause…and remember life is about connection and being able to be present for loved ones - This is the real magic. Deep chats via video chat count, too. Yet, if you do want to give a gift this year, try switching gears and remember the Three R’s—Reduce, Reuse, Recycle—and make this year’s gift giving all about the simple glow that you get when you give.
Here are a few ways to make your gift giving more sustainable this holiday season.
Minimize how many items you need to buy gift wrap for wrapping presents by making your own paper. Brown paper bags can serve as wrapping, simply add a fun pattern with stamps and tie off with pretty yarn or ribbon.
New isn’t always better, so shop secondhand. Thrifting clothing from local stores or on websites like Depop or Poshmark can be fun!
Opt for items that use recycled plastic or biodegradable packaging. For example, Our signature white bottles are made from 25% Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) Plastic and our deodorants are made with biodegradable paper packaging!
Get creative—and remember it is the thought that counts.
