Focus on eco-friendly gifts
T he holiday season is a time of plenty during which we can all thank Mother Nature for her countless treasures. One concrete way of doing this is to include some eco-friendly items in your next gift exchange. Spoiled for choice These days, it’s fairly easy to find en- vironmentally responsible products that are certified organic or fair trade. You can find them in specialized shops, public markets, grocery sto- res and even big department store chains. Here’s an environmentally- friendly shopping list that’s sure to bring smiles to lots of faces: • Clothing, jewelry and accessories (recycled, made with eco-friendly fibres that are coloured with natural dyes and goods made in factories that treat their employees with respect) • Eco-responsible beauty products (soaps, body cleansers, perfumes, shampoos, lotions)
• Fair trade gourmet products (tea, coffee, spices, chocolate) • Gadgets powered by solar energy (calcu- lators, watches, lamps) • Environmentally friendly toys (hand- made, toxin-free or recycled products) • Food from local producers (honey, maple syrup, cheese, pickles, spreads, etc.) • Alcoholic drinks produced locally (beer, wine, cider, etc.) • Art supplies (paints and recycled paper,
certified fair-trade pencils)
If possible, eco-friendly gifts should also include dual-purpose packaging. For example, use a decorated metal can, food container or reusable bag to avoid waste. Lastly, remember that buying local is always beneficial for our planet. If the products you buy weren’t transported over long distances, you’re helping to reduce air pollution.
