Guide to Eco-Friendly Gift Giving 🎁
While the holiday season is full of an abundance of joy & cheer, it can also be filled with an abundance of waste. However - it doesn't have to be! Here are some tips & tricks to eco-friendly gift giving!
Be conscious about your wrapping!
Use up those paper grocery bags as gift wrap, and then elevate them from boring to brilliant with a Sari Chic Neckerchief or Long Scarf + Wrap Belt. Our Sari Chic Scarf and Bandanas multi-task as wrapping as well! Add a sprig of greenery, red berries or a Bag Clip for an extra flourish.
Gifting wine? Add flair to wine bottles with our Sari Silk Scrunchie for two gifts in one. They look great as a bow, adding the perfect pop of color to all gifts. Our new Sari Home Tea Towels and Napkins are also perfect gifts for holiday hosts and can easily be used as wrapping.
This is also a great time to start reusing gift boxes, wrapping paper, ribbons & gift bags from previous years. Store them in a large container during the year for reuse.
Shop ethically & smart
Purchase from brands that are transparent about their practices and uplift communities around the world. Besides WorldFinds, you can find stores that meet this criteria on the Fair Trade Federation's website.
Cross off multiple friends & family members from your list by shopping from a single store - either online or locally. This helps reduce your carbon footprint by shipping lots of things at once. Plan ahead to avoid rush shipping, which also adds to your carbon footprint.
You can find gifts for everyone on your list at WorldFinds. Our vibrant Connection Bracelets make great teacher gifts. Our one-of-a-kind bags are perfect for the traveler in your life. And, our new Sari Home collection is perfect for your favorite hostess!
