5 Ways To Gift More Sustainably

5 Ways To Gift More Sustainably


Earth Day is coming up, what better way to celebrate than incorporating some sustainable gifting practices.

1. Furoshiki 

Furoshiki are Japanese wrapping cloths, traditionally used to wrap and/or transport gifts or goods. This is a great way to reduce waste and they make for great headscarves, napkins, etc.

2. Buy Local

Instead of shipping gifts from across the world, buy from businesses in your local area. It's a great way to get to know your neighbors and give more sustainably. Club Encourage has gifts available sourced locally in York, PA.

3. Handmade

Handmade goods can be easily accessible, affordable, and are always unique! Don't have time to create them yourself? Most local businesses offer a variety of handmade items.

4. Gift Experiences

Quality time can be a great gift for those who crave it. Whether you gift tools or a kit for a day of crafts or go to a coffee shop for lunch, experiences can create lasting memories greater than any one physical item. 

5. Upcycle

As long as an item is in good condition and aligns with a recipient's interests and personal tastes, there's no reason one can't re-gift! Many of the things I hardly ever use have become the most notable gifts for others.
