Tips for more sustainable gifts

We can also bear the environment in mind when shopping for gifts.

  • Quality is more important than quantity! Buy long-lasting products, preferably made of natural and recyclable materials.
  • Buy locally to avoid parcel shipments and support local businesses.
  • Ask people what they really want. By doing so, you can be sure that you’re not giving them something they’ll never use.
