Thoughtful Christmas Gifting
We have pulled together our tips for Christmas gifting that will be good for people and the planet. Read on for advice on what to avoid and what to give that mean your choices are good or both you and the environment.
WHAT TO AVOID
So avoid: candles (unless they are beeswax), perfumes (unless they are all natural), coloured body or home products (synthetic colours), reed diffusers (natural scents do not throw so they will always be synthetic).
WHAT TO GIVE
Healthy gift ideas: Reusable coffee cups (we like Frank Green or Pottery for the Planet), metal straws, essential oils and a diffuser (we like electric for their effectiveness and safety, muji and in-essence have good options), gift voucher for a sustainable fashion label (we love Good Day Girl), DNA kits make a fun gift or even just potted plants are a great gift.
