3. Gift experiences, not things
“Things” can be broken, lost, or become outdated over time. Instead of buying a gift with a potential shelf life, surprise your loved one, family, friend or colleague with an experience! Plan a fun date, a getaway or a bucket-list adventure and give an unforgettable gift that comes with memories!
4. Choose an ethical gift made from recycled materials
From recycled beach bags to wallets and journals, there are so many thoughtful and sustainable Christmas gifts designed to last. You can find a range of home-grown businesses selling their environmentally friendly and innovative creations online.
5. Buy second-hand Christmas gifts
It’s cheaper, it’s good for the environment, and if you pick the right present, more than half of Aussies say they would be happy receiving a second-hand Christmas gift. So, be nice to your wallet and our planet and get thrifting!
Gift ethically this Christmas
Gifting ethically isn’t really that hard. Simply be mindful about your use of packaging material, the item or experience you are gifting, and its impact on the wellbeing of others in our global community. This Christmas, be a conscious shopper and don’t let your gift go to waste!
