Think Outside the Gift-wrapped Box
For many Americans, the wrapping -- and tearing open -- of gifts is part of the joy of the holidays.Sign PetitionSign Petition
In fact, we spend $2.6 billion dollars ensuring we have our gifts colorfully clad!
The paper really piles up, representing a large portion of the 4 million tons of excess waste each holiday season.
Before your spirits are dampened, consider that making small changes can make a large difference.
Think outside the gift-wrapped box this holiday and give one alternative gift this year in place of a traditional gift. Small change. Big difference.
No wrapping needed on a gift like chicks from Heifer International -- the joy comes from a different source. You can be assured -- and share with the person you're giving to -- that your gift means self-reliance and hope for another family.
Make a commitment today to think outside the gift box this year and consider alternative gifts of hope.
