Gifting is all about making that one person feel special and loved. There are a lot of gifting choices available with just a click. However, non-sustainable gifting can generate a lot of plastic waste and pollution. If you are buying products in bulk for corporate events or buying items online with a lot of packaging, chances are that it will take years for the plastic to degrade, causing irreversible damage to our environment. By buying sustainable or eco-friendly presents, you tend to reduce the amount of plastic waste instantly. It is essential that we choose green lifestyle by making conscious choices small changes in our decisions. For more eco-friendly gifts ideas, check out Loopify’s online marketplace!
