How do you give an eco friendly Christmas gift?  

Giving an eco-friendly gift is a great way to show your care for the environment and the lucky recipient. Here are some tips on how to choose a gift that is good for both:

  • Look for products that are made from recycled, organic, or natural materials. These can reduce waste and pollution, and support sustainable practices.
  • Avoid products that have excess packaging, plastic, or harmful chemicals. These can harm the environment and the health of the recipient.
  • Choose products that are made locally to you.  This helps reduce the pollution from transporting items a long way, and supports your local economy that brings well-being benefits for all.
  • Consider giving experiences instead of things. For example, you could gift a subscription to an online service, a donation to a charity, or a voucher for a local activity. These can create lasting memories and reduce clutter.
  • Make your own Christmas gift or personalise an existing one. For example, you could bake some cookies, knit a scarf, or paint a mug. These can show your creativity and thoughtfulness, and make the gift more meaningful.
