The holidays are upon us - and that means consideration of how we celebrate the people in our lives.
We can choose to do things differently. Here’s information on two sources that provide ideas outside the gift box.
More fun and less stuff
New Dream empowers individuals, communities, and organizations to transform the ways they consume to improve well-being for people and the planet. They’ve been offering alternatives about gifting for many years, including extensive information and resources about how to celebrate the holidays in ways that are lighter on the planet and your wallet.
The SoKind Registry is a registry and wishlist service that encourages the giving of homemade gifts, charitable donations, secondhand goods, experiences, time, day-of-event help, and more.
Create memories, not garbage
Metro Vancouver, our neighbors to the North have a holiday campaign called Create memories, not garbage.
