Are you travelling over the holidays? I’ve only been on one “trip” since my low-waste journey began, and since it was right at the beginning of my journey, I found it challenging. However, since that time I’ve learned way more and thought I’d share some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way.
What makes a gift truly thoughtful? When I think about gift giving, one story is permanently stuck in my brain.
I almost feel guilty admitting this, but I love giving gifts. I love choosing them, wrapping them, and giving them. I always have. But as I’ve grown older, I’ve started to realize that it’s just far too much stuff.
Even looking past the idea of waste and resources, I don’t have anywhere to store gifts. My place is very small! Most people I know don’t want to receive unneeded things either. While the intention can be wonderful, often the item itself isn’t needed or wanted.
