Something to keep in mind this Christmas and holiday season…regifting is eco-friendly. Now that doesn’t mean to give a crummy gift to someone you know won’t like it, but if you get something that you just can’t use or is the wrong size and you know someone who would like it or it would fit beautifully there’s nothing wrong with passing that on. The most important thing is the intent behind the gift. Otherwise at a minimum donate a gift rather than throwing it away. Try to reuse and recycle as much as you can this season. Something my family has always done is reuse ribbon and bows. I bet we have bows almost as old as me, well, maybe not that old. But I know we’ve reused bows for 5 to 10 years. It can be done. We’ve even reused wrapping paper (that is harder than the ribbon and bows). I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or whatever holiday you celebrate this wonderful time of year. I wish for love and peace in your hearts and sustainability in your minds.
