Because we had to skip one week out of our 52-weeks experiment due to personal circumstances, we challenge ourselves this Monday with two green tips.
Tip 7 is all about giving our loved ones really valuable presents that show that we care about them, about people in need, about the environment and about the future. In modern times there are many alternatives to buying useless mainstream things in the shops. We like the idea of buying or making something with our own hands that will give joy to another person, but will also support a social cause, create awareness of the sustainability issue, make someone else in the world happy and much more.
During this week we will explore all the possibilities available to us and report about it on 1st Christmas day. Coming days you can expect some gift ideas for your family and friends. We are excited to share them with you!
Tip 8 is to make the Christmas and New Year celebration as green as possible (well, we are still hoping for lots of snow around these days, but the rest should be definitely green). There are many tips out there on how to green up winter holidays and associated festivities from A to Z. We realize already that doing it from A to Z is beyond our powers both from practical and financial points of view. But we will try to move from A to maybe F, if possible. Christmas trees, Christmas cards, gift wrappings, lights, decorations, food – we will try our best to review our routine concerning all these and to change it for the better.
And again, please check up our blog coming Sunday for the findings of this challenging but very Christmas-powered week!
