Gift Something Unique This Valentine's Day
Gifts are a form of expressing your love for your dear ones. And if that special person is eco-conscious, you can show them that you care and support their ideologies by gifting sustainable presents. Plus, you can earn brownie points for yourself by doing your part of looking out for the Earth.
Gifting usually creates a lot of wasted resources. Items like plastic-coated gift-wrapping paper end up in landfills. Using bio-degradable and natural materials benefit the earth and support artisans at the same time.
Eco-friendly gifts also have a sense of uniqueness that is sure to make the recipient feel special.
Here are a few ideas that are sure to make both of you proud of the choice:
- Newspapers can be used as an alternative to plastic gift wrappers.
Plantable stationery works in more ways than one!

- If you want to gift the evergreen favourite -- yes, clothes -- there are lots of ways to shop responsibly here too. Organic clothing, of course, is a great alternative to synthetic clothing. Then there are options like thrift shopping and reversible clothing.

- Who doesn't like a fragrant bundle of love? Think natural incense sticks or soy candles, which are better for the environment and human health than paraffin candles.
