This is the time to buy a lot of things that we often don't even need. That's why we've come here to give you the best ideas for a more ethical Christmas. This matters not only for what you offer but also for how you offer it. Christmas shopping can make a difference in the world, if we do it consciously and responsibly.
Buy less: instead of buying for everyone, gather friends in a group, family in another and make the secret friend, so you can buy something with more quality.
Choose well: don't offer gifts as a joke, it's not a joke what the planet is experiencing. Choose well, something practical, that is useful.
Offer power of choice: if you really don't know what to choose, give a gift voucher, so the person will choose something they need. Or opt for an experience, a dinner at a restaurant in the city, or a massage at the clinic that has just opened, because you will be helping small businesses.
Do something: how about getting to work and making the gifts yourself? It could be a cookie tin, a frame, something embroidered.
And finally, pay attention to the wrapping, how about wrapping it with an old newspaper or even a handkerchief? Don't waste more paper than necessary.
