Festive season tip

As the festive season approaches, YCAN members have been turning their minds to sustainable gift giving:
Kerry: Avoid buying wrapping paper. Who Gives a Crap loo paper wrapping is great for gifts. Also colourful magazines, or brown paper bags – especially for kids who just tear the wrapping apart anyway!
Ewan: No wrapping paper required for Oxfam’s Unwrapped gifts. On behalf of your gift recipient, you purchase such things as a goat, a well, a veggie garden to help people lift themselves out of poverty.
Kevin: When buying gifts for children, instead of four gifts make it three and give a donation to a cause they can relate to.
Adeline: If you can’t get around gift giving, gift cards for services, e.g. massages, a dinner, etc. are a good option.
