Do It Yourself (DIY): Often the “greenest” gift is one that you don’t buy!
No one wants to give away toxic gifts for the holidays – how embarrassing is it to commit that faux pas?! But it can be hard to read every label, research every responsibly company, and still find just the right gift for your loved ones. What’s the solution? Try making some of your own non-toxic gifts with a touch of your personal flair!
- Give a yummy handmade holiday air freshener! Better than artificial fragrances or scented candles.
- Create a gift basket of homemade cleaning & personal products using WVE’s recipes! Get creative with old jars, ribbon and other scrapbooking supplies for a super cute (and practical) gift!
