UNIQUE WAYS TO GIVE THE EXPERIENCE OF TRAVEL
...CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3
• ZERO WASTE REPLACEMENTS: For the person in your life trying to reduce their carbon footprint, why not get them tools that will help their cause. Reusable straws, coffee mugs and food storage containers are all great to help reduce the amount of trash we produce each year. You could get them beeswax wraps, bulk containers, jars, cloth napkins or paper towels, or package-free beauty products. You can also make a donation to have their carbon footprint offset through various online programs that plant trees, improve supply chains, support green energy projects and more.
• WRAPPING: One of the biggest areas for waste during the holiday season is wrapping. Wrapping a gift in paper that will just be thrown away is not always the best option for the environment. Luckily there are some eco-friendly wrapping alternatives you can try this year. You can wrap your gift in old newspapers, paper bags or extra paper around the house. Use what you already have first. You can also put your gift in a reusable shopping bag. Now your loved one has an extra reusable tote to bring with them to the grocery store. You could also put gifts in reusable containers, wrap them in blankets as an extra gift or fabric samples they could use in their next craft project.
There are so many ways to reduce your holiday waste this year. Have fun finding the perfect gift for your loved one and the earth!
