Five Eco-friendly Christmas Gift Ideas

We celebrate Christmas for about two months every year. From the first of November until the thirty-first of December, there’s a whiff of Christmas cheer at every store, every school… all public areas. Traditionally, on the twenty-fifth of December, families, friends and loved one’s exchange presents to celebrate Christmas. If you are as bad at giving presents as I am, you’ve most likely gone through over six gift guides by now. The struggle to find the perfect gift is the realest. as always, I am here to help [save you]. I have compiled a list of eco-friendly [we are a sustainability advocacy organisation] presents you can give to your loved ones this season. check it.
