Christmas is the time for giving, and we’re all guilty of getting caught up in the Christmas shopping frenzy. We want to encourage our Locals Matter Community to consider a gift that gives back this year.
We’ve put together some simple, thoughtful present ideas and inspiration that will leave less of a negative impact on the planet, and also leave you and the recipient of your gift feeling guilt-free. Here’s eight ideas for gifts that keep on giving!
Canvas shopping bags
Eco friendly tote bags are easy to fold up and pop inside another handbag, so you always have a bag ready to carry your shopping. Help your friends and family to limit their use of plastic bags, by adding a stylish canvas tote to their stocking!
Reusable coffee cup or water bottle
You can help your friends and family reduce their use of takeaway coffee cups or single use plastic bottles by gifting them a handy reusable one. There are lots on the market in different shapes, sizes and colours to suit everyone, and why not go that one step further and choose one made from recycled materials!
Beeswax food wraps
These are a handy gift for anyone who loves to cook and bake, or someone who’s always taking food on the move to picnics and BBQ’s. Sustainable storage wraps are an alternative to cling wrap, and can be used over and over again.
Community Co products
Give back to the community by purchasing Community Co products. Community Co proudly support local communities and suppliers. Why not pick up some Community Co products from your local IGA to create a tasty Hamper or Christmas stocking filled with treats!
