Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest and sometimes they are also the most sustainable! We had an office chat and came up with our favourite festive gifts for a sustainable Christmas.
We all know how much waste and excess there can be when it comes to Christmas presents. “A survey of 2,000 people for online classifieds website Gumtree.com found that every UK adult will have been given up to two presents they did not want this Christmas, each worth £48.41 on average.”* So why not make sure your present isn’t one of them?!
We also know that people across the country produce nearly 100 square kilometres of wrapping paper waste and 125,000 of waste packaging over Christmas each year. So when thinking about what you are going to buy your friends and family to spread happiness and joy maybe the choice of gifts can consider being kinder to our planet too. All of our gift ideas take this kind of waste into consideration too.
From Monday we will be giving a great sustainable gift idea everyday for 12 days. We are certain you’re going to love giving or receiving any of these simply sensational and sustainable gifts this Christmas, oh and you will have the top 12 gifts on our own Christmas lists too, just in case you wanted to share the sustainable spirit with our team too!
Happy Christmas!The Ethical Goods 12 days of Christmas gift ideas starts Monday December 10th.
