For many people, the holidays are all about celebrating relationships with friends and family. For others, they’re a time for giving and receiving gifts. But do we really need all of that stuff? And how much of it might end up in a garbage dump one day, thereby hurting our environment?
If this is how you think about the holidays, you may be looking for “greener” or environmentally-friendly gifts for your friends and family. Here’s a brief list of some items that will make people happy and won’t have a hugely negative impact on Mother Nature…
1. All-Natural Lip Balm
Some gifts are great because they play such an instrumental role in helping us get through the long and cold winter season. On that list: all-natural lip balm, which can help keep our lips nice and moist at a time when the air can be incredibly dry.
There are a number of all-natural lip balm products that do a great job of warding off painful cracked lips without having a negative impact on the environment. They also tend to be cheap, easy to find, and a pleasure to use. They might not qualify as a major gift, but they make for a great stocking stuffer.
