Do you really want to save the planet and the lives of your children and grandchildren?
Then buy gifts that don't destroy nature.
Make the right choice.

Here are 10 supportive and sustainable gift ideas:

Books printed on recycled paper, notebooks and diaries made from recycled paper.

Gift voucher from an NGO or a non-profit organization.

Gift certificate from WWF, Greenpeace or SeaShepherd.

Give a tree.

Fair trade products.

Cosmetics not tested on animals
Sustainable and natural clothing.
Today more than ever it is important to choose consciously because our choices as consumers are the only possible tool to be able to really change things. Unfortunately we tend to forget it (me first of all) and let ourselves be carried away by compulsive buying, but we must learn more and more to ask ourselves questions when we buy goods or services, because only in this way can we hope to leave those who will come after us with a better world.
Almost all of us, however, these days find ourselves asking for a few more sacrifices from our wallets for gifts, decorations, lunches and dinners with family and friends.
It is undeniable. On the other hand, we all think it is very important to make our loved ones happy and spend time with them, so we don’t want to give it up, but at the same time we shouldn’t be willing to give up even limiting waste, especially in a period of emergency and economic difficulty. like what we are experiencing.
Therefore, in the search for a compromise, unfortunately it is often the environment that pays the price, which becomes the aspect of our expendable Christmas. That’s why we decided to give you some tips to save a few euros without giving up the magic of Christmas and without having a negative impact on our planet!

Zero waste Christmas decorations.
For the decorations, we choose decorations in glass, wood, fabric, paper, cork, or colored sales paste, perhaps to be made with the children (no plastic). 
Another solution is dried fruit, marzipan or chains of popcorn which, after Christmas, we can put on the terrace to refresh the cold and hungry birds. 
The only fundamental ingredient is your imagination, let your imagination run wild! With recycled paper, recycled objects or simple twigs you can create wonderful Christmas decorations. From tree ornaments to centerpieces to wreaths.
You can use:

– balls made with beads recycled from old clothing,
– pine cones collected in the woods with cones of silver paper inside to make them sparkle,
– bows cut out of fabrics no longer used
– glass angels to hang on the door or on the Christmas tree instead of the usual plastic ones
– papier-mâché rosettes at the entrance
– solar-powered outdoor lights and bulbs

    Reblogged this on From guestwriters and commented:
    Although Christmas is a pagan festival that is also anchored in many Christian communities, this period is also a time of cosy togetherness that no one can be against.

    In these dark days, many families make time for socialising as well as giving presents and wishing each other all the best for the coming year.

    It’s not a bad idea to think about these gifts and how to make them as pleasant as possible for those around us.
