Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” ~ Genesis 1 :29
With the growing impacts of climate change, it is becoming harder to ignore it and not do anything about it. Ideally it would be great if we were a zero waste society but unfortunately that isn’t feasible for the average person in this society. However buying green gifts (eco-friendly gifts) that have a positive impact on the environment, offers everyone an opportunity to get involved with going green. One may argue that it should be the industrial and manufacturing sector that should take initiative to be eco-friendly but your everyday Joe (regular people) making it a point to reduse and recycle can make a significant impact on the planet. There is no alternative planet, this is the only one we have and it is the only one we can fix and live on sustainable
Start thinking of gifting people with green gifts. Green gifts are those that are environmentally friendly and cause minimum to no negative impacts on the environment. Now you may wonder what kind of gifts to purchase and where you can purchase them. You would be shocked to find out that they are becoming easily accessible, it is just a matter of looking for them.
